WOW Installation Problems

i just moved over to the linux os, i have been reading through and searching the web for help but im not getting anywere now

i went here wowwiki.com/World_of_Warcraft_functionality_on_Wine and did what it said in the preperation and everything turn out good.

i installed wine through the get and remove software feature.

i even found this topic and followed instructions for F14 which i have installed

and when i type in: wine /media/cat4.0.0/launcher.exe this is what i get

"No installer data could be found. If this problem persists, please contact Blizzard Technical Support."

i went to that cedega site but i dont see anyoptions for downloading it. or is that one of those site you need to register on first?

Re: how do i install this

Hello
you have installed the repo, so you can now install playonlinux using yum or add/remove software
Code:
su -
password
yum install playonlinux
installing it myself right now

Re: WOW Installation Problems

Threads merged. As stated in the Posting Rules, please use one thread per topic. Also, it might help others to solve your issue if you posted which Fedora version; whether you're using 32bit or 64bit, and your graphics card. There's some discussion on other threads about setting up Nvidia drivers, for instance.

One more suggestion: If you're doing searches, try the middle search engine (Fedora-Google); it will handle short searches like "WOW" where the standard search engine doesn't return a result.

Re: WOW Installation Problems

Hello
if you look in /etc/yum.repos.d/ you'll see all the repostories you have on your system, you should see in there playonlinux.repo that means all the software contained in that repo can be installed using yum, yum will download and install all the required packages needed to run playonlinux.
so if you do
Code:
su -
password
yum install playonlinux
you should see
Code:
================================================================================

Transaction Summary
================================================================================

Is this ok [y/N]:
press y then enter and yum will do the rest.
playonlinux should then be in your menu

this is what i got when i ran "yum install playonlinux"

Password: 
[root@Mako Mako]# yum install playonlinux
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Setting up Install Process
No package playonlinux available.
Error: Nothing to do
[root@Mako Mako]#
how do i get the repo file in that location because i looked and its not in there. i tried to save it to there but it says i dont have write access. not sure where im supposed to put the file "PlayOnLinux_yum-3.3.rpm" but i have it on my desktop right now

**edit**
also wondering should i install from a downloaded exe for wow or should i still be able to use dvd.

Re: WOW Installation Problems

Hi
could you post the result of
Code:
yum repolist
if playonlinux is not there right click on the yum-rpm and choose open with "package installer" it should then ask if you want to install and prompt for your root password, when that's complete do the yum install bit.
Note: use su - (note the dash/minus sign)

---------- Post added at 10:06 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:38 PM ----------

Re: WOW Installation Problems

Heya

I'm a bit confused about using PlayOnLinux...

As someone in "http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=252861" stated, use the guide for ubuntu (which uses "playonlinux" among "padsp") may cause a ban, while the other 2 refrences (according to his statemend) wont (guess: as they didnt refer to any other program than wine itself).

Hmm, hope you get me, its late here and i'm pretty new to linux, while english isnt native lang.

Its more a question than anything else...
