RE: Idea about why FFXI works on later versions of Wine for some and not others

Hm, seems Fedora doesn't have any of those groups.
Actually though, I was reading Alla the other day and some users had brought up Linux and Wine, and FFXI. One of the users posted saying he used Fedora, and also experienced worse framerate than compared to Windows. It's the only other person I've seen that uses Fedora, and it's only one other person but... It still points more in the direction that Fedora may have something going on that's causing these problems.
Very tempted to go download Ubuntu or something just to see if it'd really work better...
