The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Carrara version: 64 bit
Rooms: Assembly, Model, Shader, Render
Objects: Plants, terrain, hair, replicator
Rendering: rendered a file previosly created in Carrara 7.2 (non-Pro) in Windows XP 32 bit; it rendered flawless
What does not
Texture spooling: You need to disable this in "Preferences -> Imaging, Scratch Disk" at first startup of Carrara to be able to use the application. Otherwise the application would crash at rendering or room switching.
What was not tested
Wine-installation (1.5.8. at point of testing) via Fedora-package-management (yum)
no additional Wine-packages installed
You need to disable "Preferences -> Imaging, Scratch Disk -> Texture spooling" at first startup of Carrara. After that close Carrara and start again. The application now works.
Install application Install the Carrara 64-bit application as you usually would under Windows. I used the »Wine FileManager« and simply started the
which came in the provided download you got from DAZ 3D. Follow the instructions of the setup as you would under Windows and let it finish.
First start It is very important to make a change in the »Preferences« of Carrara at first startup. Otherwise the application would crash when rendering or switching to other Carrara-rooms. So go to
File > Preferences > Imaging, Scratch Disk
Spool Texture on Disk
Click »OK« and close Carrara.
Start Carrara again Everything works fine now. Happy rendering! :)

Works on recent wine

Carrara 8 (and 8.5 beta) work. Clean install (new system, kubuntu 12.04), installed wine via apt-get (wine1.4), ran installer. Only trick is to disable texture spooling. So far works fine (create scene, add objects, save, load, render).
