World of Warcraft in Wine
 
Recently I decided to try running WoW in Linux with a default wine installation and it works!!! It's remarkably slow though, like really really slow, but there are no graphics errors whatsoever, does anybody else play WoW in Linux, and if so how? If you use wine, how can I remedy the slowness?

wow speed
 
Runs faster than windows here. Try to disable the shaders/shadows and run in the same mode/pixel depth as desktop?

Code:

$ sysinfo
 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 2800+
 GeForce 6800/AGP/SSE2
 2.0.2 NVIDIA 87.62
 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5 x86_64

Edit: could also be sound freezing up the system. Mine did that for a while. The solution was... Add the following to WTF/config.wtf file

Code:

SET SoundOutputSystem "1"
SET SoundBufferSize "100"

Note: SoundOutputSystem "1" is probably OSS, "2" is most likely ALSA. "3" seems to be NONE/AUTO SELECT/or defunct/not sure

Actually, right before I found your reply, I found a walkthrough for patching, compiling and configuring wine and WoW to run correctly. For those of you having a similar issue, here it is.

Sidenotes:
The links to the patch files didn't work, I found them elsewhere though so here are the links:
Patch 1(wine-cvs-glx.diff)
Patch 2(wine-wow-fixes.patch)

And the version of wine I found on winehq.org was version 0.9.2, whereas you should be using 0.9.6.
Here is the correct version of wine

That walkthrough has worked like a charm so far, had to manually input the directory to some of the files it needed to patch, but it patched them with no errors.

I haven't used a patch...just downloaded the cvs and played. Yes, slow, but (somehow) later it was working ok ;)
