I'm not sure if wine works with the latest update on my computer. I saw that winewiki rated it gold with version 1.1.3 of wine and so I went to install that version of wine. Then, I learned that I had installed a source code so asked for help doing that. Then you gave that url right there and I didn't know that there was a thing. I'm giving building one more try and if it doesn't work then I'm using the DL on that link. I'll report back with a success or failure when it's all done.

Alright. I couldn't get the source to work so I used the link. I now have wine 1.1.3.

I have, of course, hit another problem though...

I went to the WoW website to download the installer (disks didn't work) and the installer downloaded fine. I went to open the .exe file from my downloads thing in Firefox and the following message appeared

Code:
This link needs to be opened with an application.  Send to:
And then it gives me options. For some reason it gave me the option of another .exe file though. So, I tried again and the same thing happened. Any help on this one?

Can you not right click the .exe, then select open with and specify wine.

It didn't drag like it said it should in post 6. That may because I'm on Fedora, not Ubuntu, I don't know.

just save it.
open the terminal - go to your desktop:
cd Desktop
wine whatever.exe

Or after you saved it you can right click it and tell it to always open it with wine.

I did that... nothing happened. As in, I told it to open with wine and wine did nothing.

I did it through command line and it worked. But now command line is doing something kind of odd.

I'm not going to mess with it though, it worked and it started doing this when I told WoW where to put the file.

Alright... so my computer has officially installed WoW. I went to launch it and it patched and everything just fine. I went to launch the game and the intro movie for Burning Crusade launched just fine. After the video was done... it froze. So, I rebooted my computer and went to open up my config.wtf to edit it to make it work using the same configuration as last time and I learn that when I installed it it didn't create the config.wtf file. So... that's kind of a problem. What program should I use to create it or how do I get it?

What config?
But usually, if it's not there - just create it. But if it doesn't even start - what do you want to configure?

When wine crashes it's likely it didn't crash the entire system. try ctrl-alt-backspace to kill just the x-server.
