    I have tried fiddeling alot with Config.wtf without success.

    Running latest ATI prop driver, not using XGL. Compiz Fusion turned off so it is pure Metacity but nothing seem to resolve this....

    Any suggestions are most welcome!
    SOLVED!

    Start the game, log in all the way to the game, bring up the configuration dialog and select video option.

    Check the attached jpg for setup...

    I still have better performance in windowed mode for some reason but I'll crack that one later ;o)

    Running in windowed mode and setting a keyboard short cut to switch to full screen mode works perfectly.

    Now to get Ventrillo working...
    What I did, which was a little different, was to go into the video options while in-game and check both "Windowed Mode" and "Maximize". After that it works great.

    YMMV

    You mean this will solve the problems with the new fglrx 8.42 ?

    With the new driver, all charecters and many objects where not rendered. So I switched back to 8.40.

    I'm just asking to be sure and not have to reinstall 8.40 again...

    Yup, that problem... ;o)

    Just make sure to exit the game and re-start after changing anything in that dialog. The changes wont work until restart. There is a slight risk that you need the WoW plugin "ApplyToForehead" also. I installed it so I don't know if this will work without it. It's supposed to prevent WoW from freezing after changing stuff in the above posted config dialog.

    Good Luck!

    Question WoW Freezes ~15 sec after entering the world

    So, I've just installed Ubuntu 7.10, updated the system, installed wine and also the resticted ATI drivers.

    I've followed the HOWTO that's stikied on the forum and made all the changes thats needed in order to get it working. I dident install WoW from the DVD's but had a fresh copy on my Server thats updated and without any addons ( basicly a fresh installation ) so copyed that to my laptop that im trying to get wow running on.

    I don't have the slightest clue on whats wrong, all I know is that its Wine/WoW that freezes and locks the system but If i have XMMS running with Music then the music dosent stop when the game freezes.

    Anyone have a solution on this ?

    The System is: Lenovo T60 - T5600(1.83GHz), 1GB RAM, 80GB 5400rpm HD, 14.1in 1400x1050 LCD, 128MB ATI Radeon X1400, CDRW/DVDRW, Intel 802.11abg wireless, Bluetooth/Modem, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Secure chip, Fingerprint reader, 9c Li-Ion batt.

    WoW locking up after 7.10 upgrade

    I recently upgraded to Kubuntu 7.10. I am now experiencing complete system freezes while playing WoW. I can play for sometimes hours at a time, and then it will just completely freeze my system. I experience this using both cedega and wine, in either opengl or d3d mode. All of my drivers are up to date and for the life of me I can't figure out what is causing this. Please! Any suggestions?

    People in different sources suggest that one try this in xorg.conf in the driver section.

    Option "Capabilities" "0x00000800"
    Option "UseFastTLS" "0"
    Option "KernelModuleParm" "locked-userpages=0"


    It is supposed to solve sudden hangs with the fglrx driver. I haven't had those problems myself but I hope it can help you!

    Switching off Vertex Shaders really works. Everything is rendered now.
    Unfortunately frame rate is really low without this option.
    With 8.40 I get between 20 and 30 FPS, qiet playable.
    But with 8.42 and without vertex shader I get around 5 FPS...
    ...and I hoped to get an increase in frame rate with the new driver.

    I'm wondering why some of you really seam to have this increase. What am I doing wrong?
