World of Warcraft, wine and Fedora Core 3


Hi!

Has anyone got this to work?

I've read that its running with less flaws than under Cedega.

I could do the installation of World of Warcraft with "wine 20050111" (rpm), i could also upgrade the game and create a caracter in the game.
BUT not start the game. This is because of some pixbuff issue that has been solved in a cvs version newer than 20050225. I created an Undead character; they spawn in house, I've heard.

According to winehq the key seems to be installation of the cvs version of wine, newer than 20050225
I've installed latest and greatest cvs version of wine according to the howto, using the ./tools/wineinstall
no errors!

But when I try starting the game:
# wine WoW.exe -opengl
then i get this error message:
err:module:import_dll Library OPENGL32.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\World of Warcraft\\WoW.exe") not found
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\Program Files\\World of Warcraft\\WoW.exe" failed, status c0000135

If someone got this to work, then I'll be delighted to hear how you did!

This is how I did the installation of the cvs version of wine.

My environment:
2.6.10-1.766_FC3smp
Fedora Core 3
ATI X800XT with "ATI Proprietary Linux x86 Drivers for XFree86/X.Org Version 8.10.19" (livna rpm)

Exclamation

Update!

I guess that my issue is that when I'm running # ./configure --enable-opengl I'v found out that it doesn't detect my openGL installation correctly!:
checking GL/gl.h usability... yes
checking GL/gl.h presence... yes
checking for GL/gl.h... yes
checking GL/glx.h usability... yes
checking GL/glx.h presence... yes
checking for GL/glx.h... yes
checking for GL/glext.h... yes
checking for up-to-date OpenGL version... yes
checking for glXCreateContext in -lGL... no
checking for gluLookAt in -lGLU... yes
checking for glutMainLoop in -lglut... no

It may be one of many reasons.

This is what I have:
ATI (fglrx livna rpm) and
xorg 6.8.1 with:
  • xorg-x11-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-devel-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-devel-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-font-utils-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-tools-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-twm-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-libs-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-sdk-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-xauth-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-xdm-6.8.1-12.FC3.21
    xorg-x11-xfs-6.8.1-12.FC3.21

Anyone having a solution to this?
Do you know if I'm miss something?

I know that a correct rpm would solve this to me, because it works to start the game with the 2005-02-11 version, but crashes due to the minimap issue when entering the world

---------------

Ok, I've got some help solving the opengl32 issue!
The wine people are real great!!!

Just in case that someone else has the same issue, I'm telling U what my problem was:

I'm running an ATI card, and sometime during installation of the fglrx drivers, I had to remove the file /usr/lib/libGL.so
and the file belongs to the package:
xorg-x11-devel
reinstalling the package solved the issue!

The line:
"checking for glXCreateContext in -lGL... no"
refers to check if the devel-tools are installed (?)

And the other line:
checking for glutMainLoop in -lglut... no
refers to installing the package: freeglut-devel

Same issue, but I have an nvidia card, and I've removed this package and installed it again 3 times now... it keeps complaining about OPENGL32.DLL not being there... downloading and putting it in system doesn't work.

This is driving me insane.

Edit: DO I have to recompile WINE again after doing this?!

Edit2: D'oh, I'm stupid. After deleting LibGL.so.a [or whatever it told me to delete] I never restarted configure like it said

Edit3: Still ain't working. Im going to make uninstall, delete .wine and the wine cvs i downloaded, and start getting the cvs wine over again, this time making sure the file it wants gone is gone before install...

Edit4: Nope, doesn't work. I need help

Solution
Reinstalled nVidia driver and all went better. Turns out there was some obscure error about libGL, which prompted it to not build the OpenGL.dll file.

It was so long ago since I did this, but do the last thing:
(I had it working all the time, but I finaly stopped paying for the game - since they dont like us linux-users!)
----------------
xorg-x11-devel
reinstalling the package solved the issue!

The line:
"checking for glXCreateContext in -lGL... no"
refers to check if the devel-tools are installed (?)

And the other line:
checking for glutMainLoop in -lglut... no
refers to installing the package: freeglut-devel
--------------
install: xorg-x11-devel, freeglut-devel and then compile with ./configure --enable-opengl

What HW do u have, what distribution? Version?

YAY! WoW on Linux!

Finally I Made it!

I installed lots of devel packages needed for wine compilation including xorg files as you said, zlib devel, and so on. I successfully compiled wine 0.9.6 with wow.patch.

I re-installed ndvidia drivers anew and wine runs smoothly!
I can now play WoW on Linux!
I have very good performance: 60 fps (sync with monitor refresh) and high speed loading like 35 secs to get in the game from desktop

Thanks a lot!
