Afterall Wine 1.0.1 in Debian sid is too old and buggy. Drop all existing packages (apt-get remove –purge *wine* *libwine*) and get the debs from over here, installing them one by one

# dpkg -i libwine-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i libwine-bin-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i wine-bin-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i libwine-alsa-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i libwine-gl-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i libwine-print-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i libwine-sane-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i libwine-cms-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i libwine-gphoto2-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i libwine-ldap-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i libwine-openal-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb
# dpkg -i wine-unstable_1.3.26-0.1_amd64.deb

Start over with using current winetricks

$ wget ; sudo cp winetricks /usr/bin/ ; sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/winetricks

Then install ddls

* d3dx9_43
* ogg
* vb6run
* vcrun2005
* vcrun2008

$ wine ManiaPlanetCanyon_Setup.exe
$ cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/ManiaPlanet/
$ wine ManiaPlanetLauncher.exe

If it fails because of OpenGL, run winetricks again, go to “change wine settings”, and tick “ddr=opengl”

Furthermore, if you are using aptosid, and sgfxi and proprietary nvidia run file, you can’t use that on 64bit architectures. Better off to install the official debian sid non-free nvidia-glx and nvidia-glx-ia32 to get the 32bit (openGL) libs too.

Note: The game can’t run fullscreen so fire up the launcher and untick it – oh, and if running from the shell: it creates a lot of debug output …

Have fun gaming – even the sound with alsa works like a charm! 🙂
