Weird Problem with WINE/WoW
Okay, so, I'm on the latest Ubuntu, 8.04, I think it is. I'm fairly new to Linux, and after a few unsuccessful installs of world of Warcraft through wine, I'm trying to get rid of all of it and start over...but I can't, it just plain won't let me.
Okay, at first wine installed fine, then I started installing wow. It went fine for the first day and a half of downloading patch info and other crap, then going to patch 3.0, it gave me the "we recommend you switch installation to a public folder" error, which when I actually had windows wasn't a problem. I hit ignore in wine, the first time it corrupted the install or something, wouldn't let me run, uninstall, reinstall, got to the same point. This time I tried to switch the folders, apparently, all the subfolders in my wine directory were not considered public, and when I switched the install folder, suddenly everything got screwy.
I can't uninstall wine using the command line, it just won't leave. I tried to runCode:
rm -rf .wineCode:
sudo apt-get install wine
All this is a roundabout way of saying...anybody have any idea of where I go from here?
