Have You succeeded running World of Warcraft under wine?

I have herd that its possible to run World of Warcraft under wine. Actually without flaws!!!

But has someone really succeeded?

If you have succeeded, please feel free to give us some information like:

If I could, then I would change from
"No! Still trying, I will tell you when I've succeeded!"
Yes! But with slight Texture problems!

My environment:
  • Fedora Core 3 kernel: 2.6.10-...770
  • ATI ASUS EAX800XT fglrx 8.10.19 (livna rpm)
  • wine CVS 20050308 (check that you really get all GL-things configured when you run "./configure --with-opengl")
    I am still having problem with these messages in configure.log (although they doesn't seem to do any harm!?):
    configure: failed program was:
    | #ifndef __cplusplus
    | choke me
    | #endif

    configure: failed program was:
    | /* confdefs.h. */
Does anyone know how to get rid of the texture problem with the sky?
I've done this so far:
  • changed resolution in X to same as when I run in-game (made it a lot better!)
  • installed version 8.8.25 of fglrx (got rid of most of the problems, only ugly sky now )
  • changed in xorg.conf under:
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Videocard0"
    # === Misc Options ===
    Option "UseFastTLS" "2"

Works, but runs really subpar even in 800x600 [nvidia driver installed of course]
1ghz Duron
512mb ram
nVidia GeForce4 MX440

Sound stutters a lot.

Edit: Wow, changed game res from 800x600 to 1280x1024 [what X is at] and the performance got better. LOL!

Running in window mode in any res seems to fix above issue.

Minor problems:
-Target circle under targets is missing
-Sound is generally choppy, esp when you're in a cpu intensive place
-Sound gets mroe choppy when you use more of it [if you are a druid, try casting starfire, wayyy choppy].

If there are workarounds for any of the above, let me know- I'd love to fix the minor yet annoyin bugs so I can play happier

I have it running currently on my system:

Ubuntu 5.04
AMD Athlon 2500+ (oc'd to 3200+)
1GB Geil DDR400 RAM
256MB Geforce 6600 Turbo

And the only problem is that the sound is very choppy, whether it's in a windo or not, but it is MUCH worse fullscreen.
