View Full Version : World of Warcraft Patching Issues

March 21st, 2009, 04:54 PM
Here's my problem, I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 and I've installed WoW using Wine via the cds, not the website. No problem there. Unfortunately,after installing, there are patches that need to be downloaded. I get the first patch downloaded with no issues, then comes the second patch.

Once it moves to the second step after downloading(cannot remember theexact name of the blizzard manager, and I'm not going to try again just for this post) my computer freezes up. Either everything freezes where none of my keyboard keys will work and mouse will not move, or all my windows and applications just quit.

I'm wondering if it's an issue with WoW, Wine, my version of Ubuntu, or something else. I'm sure someone else has had this problem, I'm just at wits end here.

Upgrading to jaunty and newest wine might help ;)
Or just download patches to 3.0.8 manually, then launcher is upgraded and works better.
