Offtopic: play World of Warcraft in Linux Mint

For two whole days I tried to get WoW to work on Linux Mint. I now have Wine 1.7 installed and it’s configured like this:
Windows Version: Windows XP
Libraries -> Existing_overrides: dbghelp (disabled)

My WTF File in the wow folder has the following additional parameters:

SET Sound_OutputDriverName "Systemstandard"
SET ffxDeath "0"
SET ffxGlow "0"
SET SoundOutputSystem "1"
SET SoundBufferSize "150"
SET lastCharacterIndex "9"

On my Desktop I created an executable wowlaunch.txt gemacht, mit der ich das Spiel starte. Die sieht so aus:

WINEDEBUG=-all wine "/media/USERNAME/Daten/spiele/World of Warcraft/WoW.exe" -opengl

This helped somewhat, but right after logging in with a character, wow crashed with the Error 132, memory could no be “executed”.

Finally, I installed this:

sudo apt-get install driconf

And it finally works!

Thanks 1000 times to this helpful post
