Help me out, Videodrivers and such
I just built a computer and slapped Linux : Xandros in there (mainly because it was considerably cheaper than winXP and windows is freaking gay :P but considering that ive been working with the windows OS since i was 5 years old and working with linux for a day and a half now...im a bit lost
Mainly im trying to get Guildwars runninging on my computer and heres the history of my efforts to date.
-ignorantly tried popping the Guildwars Disc into computer (didnt work)
-Downloaded Crossover and tried installing Guild Wars through there.
-After many "unable to create File" errors the installer began to move and got to 40% complete before freezing
-cancelled download and retryed, hang still at 40% so i ejected disc and put the second disc in, the installation never completed but Crossover finished and i ran the Guild Wars.exe and got an update followed by a notification that my 3-D drivers needed updating
-attempted to Download Directx 9.0 c and install with Crossover (didnt seem to work)
-attempted to update Video Drivers from www,ati.com, and this is where my current problems begin:
I am faced with a choice between Linux x86_64 and Linux x86 (how do i know what i have?)
and after randomly selecting Linux x86, i click on the ATI Driver Installer and i dont get a program or file but a bunch of code
( http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/at...er-8.14.13.run )
I searched for wine (instead of crossover) but i couldnt seem to find a download.
and i know Direct X is a MS app. but Directx 9.0 C is required to run Guild Wars...
I apologize for the considerably long post, Thank you for any help that you can offer.
