wow-wine-linux


i had wow running fine (thanks to my friend who is now not reachable)

it was running off of wine, everything was fine, until i used all the updates.


now i do wineboot like always, it has the opening screen, and then when i hit "play"

it goes away, i know its not running anymore because the cpu dropped to almost zero.


what do i do to fix this?


please be very detailed because i don't know linux that well yet

wine

Dear Moses,
I have no idea what 'wow' is but do know that wine can be flakey. I would uninstall all wine and then reinstall Wine version 1; the idea being to keep it simple.

Fred.

wow is World of Warcraft if I'm not mistaken,

one thing you can try to do is run the executable directly,
this may give you better debugging information as to whats wrong.

If you are able to get to a terminal you can run wine from the command line:
hit Alt + F2 and type any of the following that might work
gnome-terminal
xfce4-terminal
xterm

once you get one of those up you can go to the directory where WoW exists (probably 'Program Files')
Code:
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files
ls
this will bring you to the 'Program Files' directory
and list the contents with ls

look for anything resembling world of warcraft and go into that directory with cd [directory name]

Code:
wine wow.exe
or whatever the exe file is for WoW.

when wine tries to run it will spit out a lot of information what you want to post are any error messages or most of the output.

good luck!

Note: I am not an expert on wine and only got WoW working on linux once, but I do know that without some command line error messages, no one has a chance of solving the issue, but reinstalling wine is a good shot in the dark.

Moses,

Per experience I could say Fred Caro's statement is relevant: I mean, wine easily gets unstable if updated, I had it with mine too. The solution was to roll back, reinstalling to a stable version, and it solved my problem.

Hope it helps.

Good luck.

From the data that you gave, it seems that Wine cannot find some of the WoW data. I would try re-installing wine and WoW. Here is a guide from a WoW wiki.

if following mag1strate's instructions on the wiki link does not fix the issue then you can take a look how your environment is set up, it may have been changed in the update. mag1strate gave me the idea that C: might be pointing to the wrong place on the hard drive try running:

Code:
winecfg
if you look at the Drivers tab it should point the drive letters to places on the hard drive. See if it is pointing to drive_c where you were running the executable.

good luck
