Many bug fixes
Applying the 1.2 patch.
Launching the game directly trom the terminal in /System (within the installation dir) with "wine witcher.exe" after using the NO CD patch and putting d3dx9_36.dll in windows/system32 directory.
Intro movie, menus, sound.
What does not
The game's launcher (autorun). Have to launch from commandline as described above.
All characters are static as described in bug 11285. Note that this is not on an nVidia 7xxx, but on a Radeon 2600 XT!
Frame rate is very low (1/2-1 fps when looking at the combatants in the first scene at 1024x768 with details set to low). Unplayable.
What was not tested
Anything beyond the first 30 seconds of playing the game.

Please let me know your card and your problems with the game, to update this list.
If you are hit by bug #34052 (invisible character models), or flickering, set this key in the registry as a workaround (it happens on closed Nvidia driver, and to some on Mesa / Intel. It didn't happen to me with Mesa / radeonsi):
Another similar issue is bug #46553 when some textures turn black indoors. For now, install d3dx9_35 native override to work around that.
