Modifying config.wtf is not necessary as long as you pass the option "-opengl" to Wow.exe, as the OP has done.

WoW does not need any of its own system libraries or registry keys to run, so installing it under a prefix is not necessary. The copy of WoW I use runs from a folder I copied to my home directory from an installation I used in Windows and is operating as expected.

This error looks like it's driver related. If wine cannot load the GLX extensions, it means a driver capable of hardware acceleration is not installed or being used by Xorg.

thaiko: What kind of video card is in your system? I'm not familiar with OpenSuse, but you may consider consulting their forums for this issue in order to find the right drivers for your card.
