here is how to install and configure wine 1.3.1 from source with additional configurations for nVidia card owners.
download the source here.
open up the tarball:
tar -jvxf wine-1.3.1.tar.bz2
cd into the newly created directory:
configure and make dependencies:
./configure --with-x && make depend && make
install wine you may need to sudo this one
.wine directory in your home folder:
install winetricks for additional .dll’s:
make winetricks executable:
sudo chmod +x ./winetricks
install additional .dll’s using winetricks:
./winetricks d3dx9 droid winxp sound=alsa volnum vcrun2008 dotnet20 ie6 corefonts
now, after you have done all this, there is still more to do in order to properly configure wine:
configure the wine registry for windows gaming:
HK_CURRENT_USER/Software/Wine/ and add a new key named
Direct3D. then add the following strings and values:
|VideoDescription||NVIDIA GeForce GT 220|
you can add it manually as shown above, or, copy and paste the following to a
graphics.reg file and import it to wines registry.
"VideoDescription"="NVIDIA GeForce GT 220"
enable support for misc binaries:
/etc/rc.d/rc.modules and uncomment the following line:
then add the following to
none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc binfmt_misc defaults 0 0
now add the following to
echo ':windows:M::MZ::/path/to/wine:' > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register
echo ':windowsPE:M::PE::/path/to/wine:' > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register
now reboot the machine

wine 1.2-rc6 was released (awhile ago, i know). so here is a rundown of how to compile from source and install it.
download the newest source here
wine-1.2-rc6.tar.bz2 in a directory (i just put it in my user accounts home)
tar -jvxf wine-1.2-rc6.tar.bz2
cd into the newly created directory
./configure --with-x && make depend && make
after its done run
the new raid ruby sanctum was released last night. i had a chance to run this with my guild last night. we did not manage to down halion, however, we did get into phase 3. (due to time constraints we were unable to finish)
make sure your tanks have at least 31k+ armor. i have 34.8k armor on my druid and i was getting hit fairly hard.
you need a decent amount of heals and dps for the trash mobs. several of them can hit the tank for a decent amount of damage. make sure your raid heals are awesome, as the group will be taking extensive damage if they are not paying attention.
with the trash mobs, it is important to kill the invokers first and make sure you turn the assaulters away from the raid. i found it was best to have 1 tank take the invokers and the other tank take the assaulters and stay about 15 yards apart. make sure the dps focuses on the invokers and interrupts their spellcasts!
the mobs that have the commanders in them. make sure 1 tank taunts only the commander while the other tank takes the rest of the mob. dps should focus on burning down the commander first and then the remainder of the mob.
the 3 generals are a fairly easy encounter, assuming everyone pays attention to their debuffs, and moves when they need too.
baltharus the warborn
tank: MT face boss away from raid; OT pick up clone when it spawns at roughly 50%
dps: tunnel the boss
heals: heavy raid heals
basically a tank-n-spank. at 50% he will spawn a clone of himself, make sure the OT picks up the add fast and moves at least 15 yards from the MT in order to prevent getting enervating brand from stacking to much and to fast.
also, watch out for blade tempest. it hurts. bad.
tank: MT face boss away from raid; OT taunt after MT gets 2 stacks of cleave
dps: burn the boss; drop the boss and burn down the adds when they spawn
heals: have 1 healer focus on the tanks at all times and the other healer heavy raid heals
this boss will cleave. while tanking this, i noticed it was easier to have the tanks taunt off each other after 2 stacks. he also does intimidating roar, if you have a shaman in the group, make sure that a tremor totem is down. adds will also spawn throughout the course of the fight. dont bother having a tank pick them up, have your dps slow them and burn them out.
tank: face boss away from raid
dps: burn the boss; stay behind her at all times!
heals: heavy raid heals, when she flies into the air, make sure you have all your HoTs up
make sure the dps is all a fair distance away from the tanks. i found it was easier to have all the dps and heals stack together and avoid the flame breath. during the encounter, 2 people will get conflaguration. this is marked by a red arrow over the affected players head. make sure they run AWAY from the raid and not into the water, otherwise it could cause a wipe.
halion has 3 phases. remember at all times that halion is a dragon, do not stand in front of her or you will get hit by the flame breath and do not stand behind her or you will get hit by the tail lash. the best approach (like any dragon) is to stand off to the side, avoid the fire and most of all PAY ATTENTION!
she will also cast a debuff on some characters in the raid. fiery combustion, this can be decursed or cleansed, however, if it is removed to early it will detonate and more than likely cause a wipe. when it does detonate the player will be knocked back. make sure you run AWAY from the raid if you get this debuff and then call out for a cleanse when you are far enough away from the raid group.
she will also cast meteor strike periodically throughout this phase, you will see on the ground an orange circle, obviously RUN AWAY!
at 75% health she will vanish and everyone except for 1 tank and 1 healer should head into the void portal. at this point there will be constant AoE damage to the raid.
also at periodic times she will cast twilight cutter this causes 2 orbs will spawn that arc beams to her, the tank will need to turn her so that the raid can move out of the way of these beams and get 1-shot. while the dps is avoiding the beams they also need to not get caught in the cleave or flame breath while at the same time continuing to dps her down.
make sure the dps follow the tank when she is being turned, otherwise you will be hit by the beam and be killed instantly.
at 50% health halion will simultaneously exist in both the real world and in the twilight realm. she gains a stat called corporeality. you need to send 1 tank, 1 heals and a few dps over to the real world and leave the remainder in the twilight realm. this allows you to balance your dps between the realms. the reason for this is because if you do more damage in the real world, she will become less corporeal, doing more damage and healing in the twilight realm and vice versa.
during phase 3, those in the real world will deal with phase 1 mechanics and those inside the twilight realm will deal with phase 2 mechanics.
note – this strategy will change over time as i develop a better idea of the boss fight
i downloaded the mysql query browser and attempted to compile from source and install. i kept running into errors for the linux version and because i have virtualbox i didnt want to fight with installing the linux version. so i downloaded the windows version of mysql query browser and then realized that my virtualbox did not have a valid key with it. so i decided to install it using wine.
.msi file i downloaded kept flagging errors when i tried to install it with wine. i do know that there are some windows
.dll's that are required in order to install
.msi's within wine….so….i downloaded the
.zip instead. (yes, i chose the easy route, i want it to work dammit!)
i unzipped the mysql
then i made a quick script to launch it
wine /home/mike/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/MySQL GUI Tools 5.0/MySQLQueryBrowser.exe
here are a couple screenshots of what i did.
so far it appears that all the functionality is working. i will be sure to post any errors i come across here.
