    So

    LD_PRELOAD=rgl.so wine "/home/anna/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft" -opengl
    should work but it says that's an invalid handle, so I guess I don't know how much od the location I need to put in?

    You will need a WoW.exe on the end, that will just take it to the folder.

    LD_PRELOAD=rgl.so wine "/home/anna/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft/Wow.exe" -opengl
    That should work (maybe)

    I think that worked. It did this:

    anna@anna-desktop:~$ LD_PRELOAD=rgl.so wine "/home/anna/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft/Wow.exe" -opengl
    glGetString
    glGetString
    glGetString
    glXQueryVersion
    glXQueryServerString

    glXGetClientString
    glXQueryExtensionsString
    glXIsDirect
    glXQueryExtension
    fixmerocess:GetLogicalProcessorInformation (0x32f620,0x32fc20): stub
    Now what should I be able to do?

    I may have just REALLY screwed it up. Out of ideas, I uninstalled it from wine and then downloaded the free game from the website. But when I try to execute the setup file it's just "checking for updates" forever. The wait status is "poll_schedule_timeout," which is an improvement over the "pipe_wait status" it had all last night. But apparently it is waiting for some kind of input.

    Well, my sister worked on this for like 3 hours straight, reinstalling Wine manually and updating the graphics driver and trying various other fixes suggested on line. The current error problem is:

    fixme: process:get logical processor information
    Ubuntu 12.04
    Wine 1.5.12
    GeForce 8300GS
    NVIDIA 304.43

    Re: Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)

    I let this update overnight. Game is fully loaded now and can play. The sound had a horrible crackling and was cutting out and the game was freezing and when it crashed it threw me all the way out of Ubuntu.

    I found a thread on how to fix the crackling sound, and that worked but only for the crackling. I found another that said to enter exact values into the audio on Wine instead of using the system defaults, but my Wine config doesn't have that option, just a drop down menu.

    Other threads said I must kill Pulseaudio, but still others said I must have Pulseaudio. Another said I need to tinker with ALSA but I don't know where to find that. So. Ongoing problems:

    Sound cuts out
    Graphics/movement freeze
    Game boots me completely out of the OS when it crashes

    Running:

    Ubuntu 12.04
    Wine 1.5.12
    GeForce 8300GS
    NVIDIA 304.43

    ETA: Killing Pulseaudio made no difference.

    In WTF config:
    SET Sound_SoundOutputSystem "1"
    SET Sound_SoundBufferSize "150"
    and
    SET ffxDeath "0"
    SET ffxGlow "0"
    made no difference.

    I found this in the sticky:
    If using Wine causes very nasty problems like system freezes requiring a hardware reset or the xserver crashing and dumping you back to the login screen, then there is a deeper problem with your system that Wine is simply exposing. The most common cause of this is problematic drivers. Upgrading to the latest Ubuntu release can often solve these problems.
    but I just upgraded to 12.04 yesterday. There are no pending updates.

    Re: Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)

    I haven't had any sound problems before playing wow, but I have a few suggestions you may try.

    What bit version of ubuntu are you using (i386 or amd64) and sound hardware are you using? I didn't see you post it anywhere.
    Try sticking to using wine from the Ubuntu Wine PPA. You posted you are using 1.5.12, and as of this writing the ubuntu ppa is only up to 1.5.11.

    There is a bit of a dust up on the inclusion of pulseaudio in mainstream wine so for the ubuntu PPA it's been added afterward, hence delay behind offical releases. You can read about that here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1960599

    AE's rGL wine patch/module might be interfering with wine, so I would leave off trying it til you have a working base wine/wow install before giving it a try.

    There's a lot of outdated information on getting wow on wine working out there (ppl been doing this for 5+ years now), however some may still apply in your case, it can be really hard to tell. Do try to pay attention to what version of ubuntu, wine, hardware, and the date when the information was posted when taking them into consideration.

    OK, if I've already got Wine 1.5.12 how do I go back to 1.5.11?

    I know that is a n00b question but I am a n00b.
