Hi. Tried posting in the WoW howto, but figured I'd try out here too, since people seem to ignore my posts.

Ever since I downloaded the 2.2.3 patch, wine complains about not having enough space to install the patch on the harddrive. What gives? Wow runs just fine, except for the not-being-patched part. Im thinking some sort of allocation error? cause its got space to spare...

please someone respond..

WoW unpacks it's mpq data files when patching sometimes and can take up double the space it normally takes.
Not sure if this will help, but how much drive space do you have exactly free?

df -h yields:


Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 75G 32G 44G 42% /
varrun 506M 112K 506M 1% /var/run
varlock 506M 0 506M 0% /var/lock
procbususb 506M 124K 506M 1% /proc/bus/usb
udev 506M 124K 506M 1% /dev
devshm 506M 0 506M 0% /dev/shm
lrm 506M 33M 473M 7% /lib/modules/2.6.20-16-generic/volatile
/dev/sdb1 373G 82G 291G 22% /media/sdb1
/dev/sdc1 75G 32G 43G 43% /media/WD Passport

i think that means I have 58% free. I could be, and prolly am, wrong.

Have you read / try this ?
This is normal used to Install-error, but may work this proplem too.

-----------
Not Enough Hard Drive Space error

If you experience this, you need to open regedit and change the following values:
TEMP set to \ instead of the current setting.
TMP set \ instead of the current setting. These settings can located in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment.
