I did but I am not a gamer so I got rid of it again. But it would be interesting to try Call of Duty. At the time the games I tried acted the same (fail) on the source version as on the old Sarge version you mention.

Installing from source is a snap. Just follow the directions.

But I do not know if it makes a difference with Call of Duty.


I've tried that in the past and never had any luck - there always
seemed to be something I was missing, even though I thought I had
it on my system. Mind you, that was almost a year ago, so things may
be different now.
The game actually runs fine (better than in windows-it is opengl-based
after all) even under the Sarge wine. It's just that the anti-cheat
software packaged with it (called Punkbuster and used by 95% of the
servers out there) will only work reliably with more recent versions
of wine.

Not being a gamer :-( you mean you bought the game and it has a component called punkbuster that checks the environment?

But do try that source install: it really is a breeze.

I checked Call of Duty and got a number of sites that sell it for $50.
