Wine and World of Warcraft - Help!


I downloaded the patches for WoW, built wine and installed it, checked to make sure it worked with basic things (it does), then I copied my WoW installation over from my NTFS drive and tried running it. I can log in and select my character but on the loading screen it freezes. By the way I'm running the 64 bit version of fedora 6.

I ran it from the command line and got this output:

Code:
wine /home/tnunamak/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/WoW.exe -opengl
fixme:midi:OSS_MidiInit Synthesizer supports MIDI in. Not yet supported.

Can anyone help?

>.< I've had bad experiences with wine.

It looks like you're having midi problems, which may or may not cause it to fail, and you seem to be missing the ntdll(.dll?), powrprof.dll, and some others there. If you have windows you can copy the dll files into your ~/.wine/drive_c/system32 folder.
The windows ones should be on $WINDOWS/Windows/system32
where $WINDOWS is your windows mount point.

I dunno about midi, I still haven't got that 100% worked out.

I got it working using a gentoo howto:
http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Install...raft_with_wine
(google for it and you'll notice it's the top entry)

Downside:
Patching Wine this way broke about any other app I use with Wine.

You could also use WineX/Cedega.
You can get it for free in two ways.
1. Use their free CVS version:
http://www.linux-gamers.net/modules/...20Cedega%20CVS
2. Download a binary for it using bittorrent.
Do correct me if I'm wrong. But I'm not aware of any way Transgaming can stop you from doing this without violating the GPL themselves.
Just like with legal wine, you'll still need to patch it (I Personally did this since I need the legal Wine for some audio creating apps as well...)
http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Install...ft_with_Cedega

PS: In case you're willing to pay for a Wine fork, pick one that doesn't screw the normal Wine.
CodeWeavers Crossover actually runs WoW better than normal Wine and Cedega (and doesn't try to hide it's code):

I think you've won me over to using something other than wine. My first problem is, how do I uninstall wine (or somehow undo the patch)? Normally I use yum to add/remove things but it's not listed there.

Also, could I get Crossover with a torrent the same way as Cedega? It sounds a lot better and seems to have support for a lot of applications.

Just buy it. If its worth it to you, pay the folks for their time/work.
