Hi there guys! I just bought the game with this b-day promotion and I've downloaded it for GNU/Linux (Fedora). So I download the *.tar.gz and when I try to start the game an error is displayed, so I've uploaded de log for you guys. I hope you can help me coz I've tried WoG on Windows and it rules! But in Linux it'd be better ;D

Thank you in advance and greetings from Spain :D

This looks similar to this thread: it appears you have no video modes with OpenGL support configured. What video card and drivers are you using? Could you test with another OpenGL application (or glxgears, if you have it) and see if this works?

(Unrelated to your problem, but I'd like to point out that Fedora users should try to install the RPM package, if possible. The .tar.gz works fine too, of course, but can be a little harder to install and run for novice users.)

download the RPM version and see if that works.
