It seems to start up ok, but then asks me to verify that my Frozen Throne disc is in my CD-ROM drive. My Frozen Throne disk is in the drive, I can see it on the desk top. What do I need to do to help wine find it?
may be you make a mistake in wine.conf
may be you need to unmount the cd in linux
may be the ddl provided by wine don't offers acces to warcraft to read the cd ....
- try to launch word and open a document on the cd! if you can't, see at the $HOME/.wine/wine.conf or /etc/wine.conf (i'm not sure for the exact name or the exact place).
- if you can open a document on cd in word, try to unmount the cd on linux and laucnh again warcraft.
if the error occurs, the problem is from the dll, you must configure the buildin or native usage if you have windows installed.
have you windows installed on this bos ?
because during warcraft install, it modify some dll file in the windows directory. but with wine, the directory is in the tree of wine or on a distinct partition, if you have windows installed.
May be wracraft'install modify the dll in the real windows directory and wine use the dll provided by itself. at this moment, warcraft can't their own modified dll and cannot accec the device like they are real.
in another is the letter of the cd change : a letter was assigned during install, and now when you launch it you have another letter.
a last idea : how wine call the device : /dev/cdrom or /dev/ide/lun0....
