Updating wow over network cardating com
5.4.8 Hotfixes (end of may 2014) have apparently resolved two important problems; both the 64-bit operation and Open GL work fine now.
Most people will want to update their Linux configuration for the game, due to much smoother experience.
However, only D3D9 graphics mode is possible, since the Open GL mode does not connect.
When an application is outputing sound through OSS, it will cause conflicts with other applications outputing audio, because OSS can only output audio from one application at a time.
To work around this issue, you can wrap your running Wo W instance with the newer audio system using the padsp launch prefix in a terminal.
Therefor it's highly recommended that you enable the Open GL mode directly, instead of using it indirectly through Direct3D.
As of early april 2014, the 64-bit Wo W client crashes after a short time.
Ventrilo on the other hand does not have a client for Linux and needs to run through Wine, just like Wo W.
