Performance: Low Frame Rates

Posted 2006-08-21 23:42

I'm running Ubuntu 6.06 and have recently installed crossover office and WoW. After updating my ATI drivers, I am able to enter the game through the run a windows command utility and adding -opengl to the end of the command. However, my frame rates have been fairly abysmal framerates, 3.2 or so in Thunder Bluff.

according to fglrxinfo:

OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9550 Generic
OpenGL version string: 2.0.5814 (8.25.18)

Any thoughts?

Have you tried using minimal video settings in WoW?  One thing that seemed to make a big difference with some nVidia drivers was disabling the shader effects.  I do not have an ATI video card, but it may be something as simple as disabling an effect in WoW that is not working correctly with the driver.

in the ubuntu forums there is a thread for automatix.

you can install the automatix package and it has the latest nvidia package.
after i first installed Wow it was running poor FPS after installing automatix and installing the Nvidia package Wow has been running flawless for over a month now.

My Ati card was having simular Issues you may need to tweek the
xorg.conf setting.
