wine 1.32 / gentoo linux / amd 5700 gpu / xorg driver / wow

Post by tecuma » Fri Nov 18, 2011 4:58 pm

hello community,

i try to run world of warcraft within the environment mentioned above. i am using a 64bit environment with multilib with 3.0.6 kernel.

when i start
wine Wow.exe -OpenGL
i receive the following message at the end
...
archive Data\art.MPQ opened
fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x32ecac,0x00000000), stub!
fixme:d3d_caps:wined3d_guess_card No card selector available for GL vendor 4 and card vendor 0000.
fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x32eb6c,0x00000000), stub!

err:wgl:X11DRV_wglCreatePbufferARB ((nil)): unexpected iPixelFormat(0) <= 0, returns NULL
a message box come up which tell me that wow could not start 3d acceleration.

i use the open-source driver as described in the gentoo documentation.
when i check the 3d capabilities all seems to be fine.

celsius ~ # glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: Yes

glxgears is working and showing about 1400.000 fps.

eselect opengl list shows the open source driver
Available OpenGL implementations:
[1] xorg-x11 *

did i miss something to configure for wine?
did i made a mistake or forgot something in the setup for my gpu?

regards

In many cases the open-source drivers are not up to running windows
games through Wine even if they work for Linux native games and/or other
3d programs. Try using the latest proprietary driver available for your
card.

hello tparker,

thank you for your info.

indeed this solved the problem. i have had to
- install the proprietary adm driver
- rebuild the fglrx module (for whatever reasons there was a reported incompatibility message seen in xorg.log)

after this wow is running fine.

i am not able to mark my thread as solved. if someone can do this maybe it is a help to other people.

regards
