    ich bin es nochmal, ich konnte endlich das fglrx problem lösen 🙂 da du im skype nie da bist, ab wohl eher im ICQ, würde es mich freuen wenn ich dich per ICQ kurz kontaktieren könnte.

    grüsse aus der schweiz

  2. Hi super Sache. Leider scheinen die Symlinks bei mir nicht zu funktionieren. Wenn ich in der Konsole folgendes eingebe: “winelol LeagueofLegends.exe” kommt immer “could not open”

    Ich habe die LeagueofLegends.exe nach “/opt/winelol/bin/wine” kopiert und mit folgenden Befehl erfolgreich gestartet: “/opt/winelol/bin/wine LeagueofLegends.exe”

    terror@lubuntu:/opt/winelol/bin$ /opt/winelol/bin/wine LeagueofLegends.exe

    Jetzt wird das Spiel selber runtergeladen. Ich benutzte lubuntu und es ist gestern neu installiert. Liegt das dadran? Eventuell die Pakete vorher selber unter einen frisch installieren System testen.

    • Hi terror,

      das Problem mit dem Symlinks lässt sich nicht ändern und ich werde dieses auch mit den kommenden Versionen entfernen.

      Mach es dir einfach und starte das ganze wie folgt: /opt/winelol/bin/wine /pfad/zur/LeagueofLegends.exe

      Natürlich musst du das “/pfad/zur/” entsprechend deiner Bedürfnisse anpassen, dann musst du auch nichts hin und her kopieren.


  3. I still unfortunately am not able to play. ): With the winelol package, running wineloldeps, installing League of Legends, and then applying the patched launcher, it just gives me a white box of the launcher screen and closes.

    • Hi kadafy,

      this is a problem with the new patcher. I’ve posted a way of solution to get League of Legends with the new patcher running in WINE. But at all we can only hope, that it will be possible in the future to get the game completely running again.


  4. Hello dear Unixblogger,

    Thanks you a lot for your work !

    I still have a probleme when I lauch the lol.launcher.exe

    err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x543450 "?" wait timed out in thread 010c, blocked by 0025, retrying (60 sec)

    I use

    deb maverick main
    deb-src maverick main

    winelol --version

    (So I don’t know if is x86 or x64, but i use x86 Ubuntu)

    Best regards,

    • Hi ArrowBaZ,

      with the command “arch” in the terminal you will see your architecture. Anyway, I build the packages for both plattforms.

      The error message(s) you described is actually the problem with the new patcher. There are a few ways of getting LoL running again, but it is very unstable at all …

      So, we have to wait for the future, if League of Legends become able to be played again with WINE or Linux / Unix.


  5. Great work! I got one question though, should I remove the original wine before installing winelol or is the problem with WINEPREFIX solved.

  6. Hello unixblogger,
    I nerver tried to play LoL since last night, when the new patch came out, so it is likely I am doing something wrong in the configuration.
    I am trying to use winelol with the ACE client, with their last patch (3.6, that came out yesterday), I can launch the game and navigate in the menu, choose my hero and so on, but when I should see the loading page, a crash occur.
    here is the error in wine:

    wine: Call from 0x7b839242 to unimplemented function
    wine: Unimplemented function
    called at address 0x7b839242 (thread 004e), starting debugger...
    Unhandled exception: unimplemented function
    called in 32-bit code (0x7b839242).

    Do you have any idea why this crash could occur?
    Thank you,

    • Hi lmao_0,

      that’s a little bit tricky.

      Actually ACE ist the only way to get League of Legends working again with WINE. So for me, it looks a little bit like that you have not installed vcrun2005. Additionally you can try it with wininet!


      • Ok I made it work, as you noticed I missed some installation simply done by launching wineloldeps.
        If I may suggest you could remind people on this post that they have to launch this one, in case people didn’t read the 1.3.17 release post (as it was my case).

        Big thanks for your great work!


      • After a few games I confirm it just worked well, except for one thing: when I want to access yje store the client crashes.
        wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x00000000 at address 0x143a6e32 (thread 002d), starting debugger…
        Has anyone encounter the same problem?
        Thank You,
