I get this error when trying to run Starcraft in wine:
Code:
isaias@gentoo ~ $ wine .wine/drive_c/Starcraft/StarCraft.exe
NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidiactl (Permission denied).
NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidiactl (Permission denied).
fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x32f3c0,0x00000000), stub!
wine: Unhandled page fault on execute access to 0x00000000 at address (nil) (thread 0009), starting debugger...
wineserver crashed, please enable coredumps (ulimit -c unlimited) and restart.


The problem seems to be with /dev/nvidiactl. All options I've google'd seem a little different with each other, per changing the permissions on the file. Is this the recommended solution and is it safe? I changed the permissions to chmod 777 to no effect, unless a restart was required for these changes to be reflected which I didn't try.

You have to be in group video to use video card. chmoding system files is not very good idea.

sudo gpasswd -a USERNAME video and a reboot worked. Tried it once before without a reboot and thought it didn't do anything. A reboot is required for this to work. Problem solved.

More accurately, you should just be able to log out and log back in for new group information to take effect.
