    Well, not to be reviving such an old thread, but I figured this thread can be archived and it may help someone else at a later time.

    Demo of Gunz functioning on Debian: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnlBCUPqssw

    Tutorial:

    If you're interested in setting up DirectX in the non-free copy of Virtualbox (Free for use, not free for modification), you can download a copy of VBox at the official website (www.virtualbox.org).

    From there, setup a copy of Windows XP (Home/Pro) or Windows 2000 (Vista/later is not supported as far as I know) in VirtualBox.

    In the virtual machine, setup Guest Additions, then download the WineD3D installer (http://aybabtu.com/rmh/wined3d/).

    Execute the installer while in safe mode (To enter safe mode, reboot your virtual machine, and repeatedly press F8 until an options menu pops up)

    NOTE: During WineD3D setup, only select DirectX8 and DirectX9 - anything else may cause problems!.

    After that, the rest is self-explanitory. Enjoy!
