  • getting world of warcraft running?

    Hi

    I've been having some stability issues with s2ram on fglrx, and I gave the open source drivers a serious try. They've been getting better fast, most of the problems I had earlier are gone (a lot related to tvout/multiple monitors and s2ram). But I wanna get 3d working.

    I tried installing the st3c lib (found a debian package at debian multimedia, and it installed cleanly on my ubuntu maverick install). I got gallium3d set up and working. Compiz works (although a bit slowly). World of warcraft starts, but I'm missing models, and I get the error "Need instruction operand number for 16" on a terminal.


    How can I get further? Can I at all at this stage?

    on my last try the st3c only works on 32bit systems out of the box...

    and i think the st3c lib for debien is for r300-r500 only

    you need to download the source and compile it.

        You haven't said which generation hardware you have, but WoW will not with R600+ until r600g supports the libtxc_dxtn library. Support for S3TC textures is mandatory for WoW.

        If you have R300-R500 hardware then you should be fine using r300g.

            Sorry, neither r600c nor r600g is capable yet of running WoW. Your options are:
            a) patience (for r600g to evolve),
            b) fglrx, patience and tranquillizers (for the amount of grief that fglrx will cause you)
            c) NVIDIA

              c) nvidia LOL-- thats why he use the radeon driver because he wana have c)

              s3tc works on 32bit linux with the 600g driver

              for the 64bit he need to tweak a bit.

                Thanks for muddying the waters.

                Not the last time I tested it, it didn't. And not according to the feature matrix, either:

                http://wiki.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature

                I'll elaborate: r600g needs to expose the OpenGL S3TC extensions.

                  last time i check it i download a source compile it and install it then the nativ 64bit apps work with s3tc

                  but not the 32bit apps in wine.

                    Good for you, BUT...

                    I tested r600g from git on Saturday 11th December 2010 against World of Warcraft itself, and it did not work. Nor did it make any attempt to load the libtxc_dxtn library. (I have both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of that library, BTW.)

                    I have no idea what you were testing, or how you were testing it, but I strongly suspect that your definition of "S3TC support" has no bearing on this conversation...
