please please please help :'(

i pray.. nay, beg for your help!

i am new to this wonderful world of linux, and it is wondrous. it is also extremely frustrating. i do not know how to compile things from source, i do not know where libraries go, i do not know many things. i do know one thing though: i need to play world of warcraft very very very badly. it has been almost 2 weeks now, and the tremors won't stop.

basically what i'm asking, is if someone can write a "how to get warcraft working; for cavemen"

i need it spelled out, and don't think i don't feel like the worlds dumbest person for needing it spelled out.

i've struggled with this for a week and a half, and i'm still at square one. the major hurdles being i don't have much time.. and my system is a amd64 (opteron) with a radeon 9800 pro, suse 9.2

. i tried, lord did i try. i fumbled my way through getting xfree86 compiled and in (because for some f'n reason you need it even though you're running x11 with these lovely ati drivers) and got myself a lovely "X is f'd, re-install please ^^ your system is flogged" every single issue i've tried to fix has come out horribly. i can't even get past the cd's won't unmount issue, and i tried every answer i saw at, and the answers in the howto.


i need to play so bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm surprised that you needed to compile xfree86. As if you select one of the graphical desktop installs, it is installed for you.

Probably one of the most useful commands is 'yast' From there you can install any of the supplied packages.
