I am shocked I got as far as I did with this.  I am tired of windows and extremely new to linux.  I am running Fedora Core 10 at the recommendation of a friend.  I spent all day learning how to download an install drivers etc. I got WoW installed and Wine.  When I try running its with all the different ways i have been told i end up with this error.

I am guessing its a video card error of somekind but i honestly have no idea what to do to fix this i've spent hours reading through every help forum i can find to configurations in the config.wtf file tried running it from a terminal window etc. 

The initial install went flawless, and WoW even patched itself with no problems. The launcher itself works, i can choose the different options but as soon as i try click play it just quits and nothing happens.  Above is the error when i manually run it using the "wine Wow.exe -opengl"  

Any help would be much appreciated, i don't play any games other than WoW and i really don't want to go back to windows again it would crush me.
