Re: [SOLVED] Wrath of the Lich King (WoW) Install Probs.
I can confirm this worked for me:
As root (sudo didn't seem to work for me, but by all means try it because I can't think of a good reason why it didn't except I'm just sleepy...) mount the DVD to a directory with the following parameters: (to get a root prompt type: sudo su -) sudo mount -t udf -o ro,unhide,uid=1000 /dev/<your_device> /your/directory
Now, simply : wine ./Installer.exe as your user account from the DVD... nothing special there...
If you have your game installed into another location other than the default, then go into ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files and then type: ln -s /path/to/your/wow/directory
this will create a link so things like expansions can find the default path, but you can still keep your game wherever you want it.
EDIT: BTW, this is not a wine issue, moreso a DVD design issue which requires special mount options...
