    WoW using wine package & nvidia glx

    Hi all, apologies in advance if this is posted in the wrong place, but I'm having difficulty finding any information on this problem.

    I have installed dapper x86 and nvidia-glx for xorg, wine 0.9.12 from the official repository.

    I have tried various patched installations etc as per the usual guides, all end up with the following error:

    khawoldar@ether:~$ wine .wine/drive_c/games/World\ of\ Warcraft/WoW.exe 
    X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
      Major opcode of failed request:  144 (NV-GLX)
      Minor opcode of failed request:  4 ()
      Resource id in failed request:  0x24a
      Serial number of failed request:  355
      Current serial number in output stream:  355
    My google travels have indicated this could be something to do with xinerama, but I'm not getting very far using the opcodes as keywords etc, so I thought I would ask you guys if anything is obvious to you.

    I'm running a dual head system btw, hence the xinerama thought.. any help would be greatly appreciated - this game is the only thing I have left to migrate to this wonderful operating system

    TIA - Kee

    Dude, your link has an extra "http" in it, it doesn't work.

    keeran, that version of Wine is way out of date, update to the latest version 0.9.43:
