    cedega error


    cedega - i got it cause i'm a n00b and it seems easier then my countless failed attempts at using wine, plus a patch comes out and i simply update it in a nice easy gui....awsome for what i need it for, sad that you have to pay for it....

    either way, this happens when i try to load up the wow/ installer.exe

    X Error of failed request: BadImplementation (server does not implement operation)
    Major opcode of failed request: 129 (MIT-SHM)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 5 (X_ShmCreatePixmap)
    Serial number of failed request: 3514
    Current serial number in output stream: 3545
    X Error of failed request: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
    Major opcode of failed request: 55 (X_CreateGC)
    Resource id in failed request: 0x280034a
    Serial number of failed request: 3517
    Current serial number in output stream: 3545


    cedega's tech support is alittle over rated....e-mailed a few days ago, and posted yesterday, havn't heard ANYTHING from them. starting to think 5 dollars a month isn't worth it....

    any ideas on how to fix it?

    From searching the TransGaming forums, the most likely solution appears to be updating your video drivers, or if you're already up to date then make sure they're installed and working correctly (reference 1, 2, 3).
    Also, if you're running a 64-bit install of Ubuntu, make sure you have the 32-bit libs. And don't run Xgl when trying to use Cedega.
    Check the wiki for lots more stuff to bear in mind.
