Hello All,

I am fairly new user to both, linux and POL. I am trying to install Burning Crusade on my laptop.

When I use POL to install the burning crusade it is unable to find the previous installation of WoW. It says Please install World of Warcraft before installing The Burning Crusade and gives me options to exit.

Please help!! Would love to see this work and convert some people to linux!

You may need openSSL for this. I had a simmilar kind of issuw with the Starcraft 2 patcher. However, I am not totally sure.

Your best bet would be to launch it from the debug console and upload the output.

Btw which laptop are you using? i  am looking to get a powerful laptop to dual boot linux and windows but confused which one to go for. Any suggestions?

Okay. I will give this a try, and see it it solves it. 


I am using the Acer Helio 300. Sure. I saw this list which mentioned good options that you can consider.
