    RE: World of Warcraft on Linux!
    Surprised that you did not use the GeForce 210 initially. I have always felt AGP GPUs performed better then onboard GPUs. You are moving forward. It is just a matter of getting the game installed and running. It sounds like you were able to get the onboard GPU to render, hopefully. There is hope I think.

    You do know that the workaround in that link you posted is for "intel" graphics. Not sure how well it will work for you GeForce GPU, but you can try. It also mentioned that software-rendering does not offer the best support. Then again, your case may be different. I am curious. Did you start the game after or before you installed the driver?

    I was in your position when I started working in a terminal. After awhile you get used to it. Were you able to install wine and all the required files? Was there a problem with the graphics?

    Are you trying to install the proprietary driver for your video card? That will have to downloaded from the manufacture's website. What command are you typing in the terminal?

    I did some research, and based on the findings, it would appear that your DVD disc is in bad shape. The system is having a hard time reading from it. If you have a fresh DVD disc (un-touched) lying around, then you can try and reburn the ISO to it. If you want to burn the ISO to a thumb drive you can use unetbootin [url=http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/]unetbootin[/url]
