If you have comments or questions concerning this petition, please direct them to: Prestigious Game Makers at [email protected]; I was wondering if you are planning to make a Linux version of World of Warcraft(Wo W) for all the Linux users out there that would like to play your game online without having to jerry-rig it in order to make it work.
If it's a matter of popularity, could you mention how many potential Linux users it would take for you to consider porting the Wo W game to Linux?
Please consider porting Wo W to Linux so that the masses can enjoy! Shannon Van Wagner of text-----------------------------So if this works, I'll be making a lot of other petitions for other software to try and get more support for Linux. I think it's important that we Linux users let software companies everywhere know that we want to have all types of software ported to Linux.
Right afterword I started Wo W, but it crased and generated a error log that I saved to the desktop as, ‘imsettings-applet-bugreport.txt’ The error log complains that I’m not a member of the pulse-rt group. Goals of this post: -Describe how to add a user to the pulse-rt group for purpose of getting World of Warcraft under WINE running after a ‘yum update’ When I rebooted I got an error; a window popped up giving me an option to save the error log. Here is an exerpt from error report: System: Linux 184.108.40.206-170.2.35.fc10.i686 #1 SMP Mon Feb 23 EST 2009 i686 X Vendor: The X.
Unfortunately, not all Windows applications work with Wine and even if they do, you might not be able to install or run them the way you do in Windows.
Wine, which was developed in 1993, is a recursive acronym for "Wine Is Not an Emulator," though this doesn't make it true that it is not an emulator.
Basically everything a general user would want to use with a computer is there when the installation is done.
For those applications that are not there, chances are you can download them for free.
This is a shame because there are actually many more users of Linux out there than the media and most technical sources acknowledge and we deserve to have voice.
Optimally, there would be a version of Wo W available for the major versions of Linux and other *nix systems (i.e., Red Hat/Cent OS/Fedora, SUSE, Mandriva, Slackware, Ubuntu, Debian, Free BSD, PC-BSD, and Solaris).
However, the porting Wo W to any of the most popular Linux distros would be a good starting point.
From the error message I’m guessing that we need to either add ‘you user account’ to ‘pulse-rt’ group or we need to change the policy in policykit to allow access to the Pulse Audio hardware resource(your soundcard) Adding a user to a group is easy in Fedora 10 Linux. We start by selecting from your gnome panel, System – Users and Groups. [[email protected] ~]$ cd /home/matt/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft [[email protected] World of Warcraft]$ wine -opengl The yum update and fix afterwords seems to have fixed my keyboard issue from this earlier post.
Select the your user(in my case matt) and click on the properties button.
You just need to insert the CD into the optical drive, boot the computer from it, and follow the instructions.
