Wine and World of Warcraft


First, my setup-

Dell Inspiron 6000, Debian Linux with x.org, ATI radeon x300 with firegl 6.8.0 driver installed and working (armagetron is working great, and so is glxgears). All the libraries are installed.

So I ran wine to install WoW, then did the update, then logged in. If I run with "wine WoW.exe -opengl" it freezes after the handshake and login. I mean, no mouse movement. This doesn't matter if I full screen or put it in an independent window. If I run with "wine WoW.exe" and no -opengl argument, after the handshake the screen goes black, but I can move my mouse. I bought this game specifically because I heard it works with Linux. I will not use Windows, because I'm a Linux admin, and that's a step in the wrong direction (I won't be learning anything new with Linux). I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. Everything works great. In fact, I get my video and sound to work great on the opening cinematics with "nice -n 19 wine WoW.exe". I've heard about Cedega, but apparently, you have to pay for membership on Transgaming.com, and I haven't paid for software in so long. I downloaded a winex cvs they had, and it doesn't even work right. I had to remove gcc 4.0 and put on gcc 3.4 just to get the thing to compile properly, and even then it doesn't seem to work right. Blah. I just want to play a game every once in a while.

I could use some help. I'm no linux "n00b" but don't have much experience with wine. Just let me make a character and play!

Yea, I saw the original for that already, which was part of the Gentoo wiki. I TRY to dig through the net extensively before I make any posts. While I appreciate the attempt, I think I'm past the point of how-tos. I've seen some vague documentation on the difficulty of WoW with the fgrlx driver that I'm using, but haven't found details. Anyone have any details on it, or have gotten it to work?

Well, I made the shift over to cedega. I'm not sure if I should have killed wine, so I'm reinstalling it right now. Hopefully, they can co-exist. Anyway, when I run WoW.exe with cedega, it doesn't even draw the login screen correctly. All it does it show a TON of shifting triangles. The console output gives the following types of errors:

err:virtual:VirtualFree Could not remap pages, expect trouble

#Now, I get a ton of these before the screen goes black to load the game. Then I get a bunch of these:

err:ddrawirect3DDevice9_GetStridedDataUP stride inconsistency! 24 != 32
fixme:ddrawirect3DDevice9_SetStreamSource offset=1131216

I googled the error, and didn't return anything. I'm using the most recent fglrx driver from ATI, created from .deb packages that I got when I used the ATI fglrx-installer. The dev driver package is also installed. I have all the necessary mesa drivers, etc. Glxgears works great. My glxinfo says:

Obviously, everything with OpenGL is working (I know, because I just got out of Armagetron rehab, where I was for 7 months...couldn't kick the habit). Hopefully, someone else has seen this problem.
