OS: Source Mage GNU/Linux
Graphics: nVidia NV31 GeForce FX 5600 rev A1
Graphics driver: nVidia binary driver v1.0-9629 built from nVidia's
source tarball
E17: Latest from CVS
Cedega: 5.2.7

World of Warcraft, Warcraft III, Civilization IV, and others all run
fine on E17 through Cedega for me. The problem is not E17.

The OpenGL problem for WoW sounds like you didn't follow the directions
when setting it up. Not only do you have to pass '-opengl' as a flag to
Cedega, but you need to modify your WTF/Config.wtf to have:
  set gxAPI "opengl"
  set gxColorBits "24"
  set gxDepthBits "24"

As for Half-Life 2, I don't have that game, but Steam and Counter-Strike
1.6 work fine.
