Hello everyone.

This strikes me as a rather silly question, but I must ask it.

I was curious about the possiblity of running World of Warcraft on a G4 machine running Gentoo.

The specs of the system aren't really that important. I wouldn't be asking this if it wouldn't run adequately under OS X.

I have it running exceedingly well under x86 Gentoo at the moment, so it is possible on that side of things.

Let me know what you guys think.

qemu can do User-Mode virtualization (i.e., run Linux/x86 programs on Linux/PPC) so one should be able to (in theory at least) run Wine or Cedega through qemu, then run WoW under Wine (or Cedega).

I got Warcraft III running on a B&W G3 400Mhz with the Radeon 7000 under OS X. Runs quite good. It shouldn't be a problem with your machine.
