Exclamation World Of Warcraft - Problems with OpenGL


After many many hours trying to get this going I ran into a wall!

After typing in Cedegan WoW.exe -opengl

this comes up!

Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".

I need som help making it run in opengl mode or a good solution to make it not go so slow in d3d. I do have an ATI card (radeon 9600).

Can someone pls. help me!

Update!

I run on Fedora and I have installed wine/Cedega.
I have installed Xfree86

Though it ain't working. Btw. I am very new to linux so a detailed discription how to solve this would be really GREAT!

Well... I had it running with an ATI card...
Try to go here: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p...7.html#1717447

There it says something about how you do!

And the ATI drivers can be tricky, I haven't tried the latest ATI drivers, so I cant tell if they work. But the 8.10.19 (or what ever it was) did not work. The earlier version 8.8.xx did work.
The only issue was that the sky got weird.

Good help on installing the ATI drivers can be found here and on fedoraforum.org, otherwise: google
If U find it too tricky: go get the rpm from livna: http://rpm.livna.org/

Dont mess with the two different repositories! (read this: http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/FAQ.php#D)

I prefers "dag", and the packages that I cant get from dag, I download from livna // fedora.us

Now a days I often compile those stuff myself.

GL!
