I'm trying to run World of warcraft on my Debian Lenny system (Nvidia Geforce onboard video, AMD athlon 64x2, 1GB ram) and I'm hoping someone might be able to help me out.
I have installed World of Warcraft - patches and all - on a windows setup, so I just copied the directory under Program Files and am launching the WoW.exe from there. Under wine, it starts up normally and I'm getting sound and video, but it's running PAINFULLY choppy. I'm talking one frame per second, as opposed to the 15-20 I can get in Windows on the same machine.
I assumed this was a design flaw - since wine wasn't designed to run system-intensive tasks like online role playing games.
So I decided to give Cedega a try. But even worse: It won't even start up. I've heard nothing but good things about cedega and how beautifully it runs Windows games, but much to my dismay I get greeted with this lovely error code:
This application has encountered a critical error:
ERROR # 132 (0x85100084) Fatal Exception
Exception: 0x80000100 (unknown exception) at 0023:373F2F05
Press OK to terminate the application
Can anybody offer any advice?
