    Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne and Wine

    My wine version is: wine-0.9.27, and I'm using a Radeon Mobility M300 on my laptop.

    I'm using a fully updated version of kubuntu 6.10.

    I had no problem installing WC3 in wine, but when I try:

    $ wine "Frozen Throne.exe" >& ~/error.log
    It hangs, and I have to reboot the whole system. The log shows:

    $ cat ~/error.log
    libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x4b
    libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x4b

    Any ideas? If you need any more hardware information or whatever, let me know. TIA!

    There is a (very simple) how-to here :

    It appears that :
    wine warcraft.exe -opengl
    should work.

    Given you have installed the proper drivers for your video card. Did you ? More here :

    Thanks a lot! It turns out I didn't have my video drivers configured correctly. All of the other stuff I run on wine didn't have any 3d rendering needs, so I hadn't realized it until now.
