I run World of Warcraft on Windows 7 on one hard drive and Ubuntu on another. Until I can figure out how to get my wine version working at the same framerate as the Windows 7 version, I have to do large group content on my Windows installation.
I have two copies of the installation. As of now, I link the directories inside of the primary folder in the wine installation (i.e. the Interface folder is a symlink pointing to the Windows 7 installation folder). The reason I link the subdirectories instead of the main directory is because, 2 directories deep (
/wow/WTF/config.wtf), there is a configuration file that I keep different for both installations. While this is pretty much okay, it means I will run into issues when I get either installation patched as the root installation folder has executable files.
Is there a way to build a symlink, but allow a file inside of the symlink to remain unlinked? Or, alternatively, is it safe to link
*.exe files that I know will be altered / patched?
