Re: Double your framerate in WoW under Wine
I know this thread's really old, but I came here for help, and that screwed me, so I thought maybe I could help the next poor ******* out.
1st, wine has been updated since this guide (which means the writer of this guide had no way of knowing it wouldn't work a couple years later.)
It seems to me that you're no longer allowed to run wine with sudo. (it will produce an error). This would not be a problem, except that hack #2 involves you setting up wow on it's own X server (which you can ONLY do as root or with sudo). Hack #2, then, is completely broken unless you find a way to put wow on it's own x server without using root. I suggest a schrodinger's cat kind of thing, where the computer doesn't know if you're logged in as root or not until it looks at the terminal. Maybe that will give you enough time to set up the separate x server?
I've seen 1980s pointer arithmetic-heavy K&R C programs more readable than this.
