Installing the Game
Running the Game
What does not
The built-in NCSoft-Launcher/Patcher
You need the NCSoft-Linux-Launcher from http://www.lotrolinux.com/ULL/
What was not tested
The ingame Voice-chat (I found nobody who uses this feature)
Aside from some missing Textures, the Game runs perfectly

1. Don't use the Original-DVD, the installer takes forever to get a hopeless outdated version on your Harddisk.
2. Get the Client from ftp://ftp.playtr.com/setup_data_files/
Event though the Client is very large (~3GB) you will have to download the same amount in Patches, if you are upgrading from the Disk-Version.
3. Install either from disk or the downloaded client
4. Get the Linux-Launcher from http://www.lotrolinux.com/ULL
make install (checkinstall, whatever you prefer)
5. If the game complains that you miss d3dx9_33.dll.
Download it, and place it in your wine installations windows and
windows/sytem32 folder (/home/user/.wine/drive_c) and it should work
6. Use the Launcher to Patch your Copy of Tabula Rasa
