What does not
AÂdobe Setup fails (at least for me) telling me that
The minimum system requirements listed below are recommended in order to run Adobe Creative Suite 4 Master Collection properly and are not met:
And that's the entire message. Nothing underneath or bÂelow.
What was not tested
Anything beyond the standard Loading Setup screen.

CS4 can be installed with wine but it requires a few tricks. Â
You will need either a wine from 1.1.17 or before, or a wine from git with b8965ee7c90a687af4c84ad0ede73b1df901e16c reverted and this patch applied.
Run the commands below in order:
wget http://winezeug.googlecode.cÂom/svn/trunk/winetricks chmod +x winetricks sh winetricks msxml6 gdiplus gecko vcrun2005sp1 ie6 mdac28 jet40 winxp wine setup.exe
Acrobat 9 needs to be selected not to install for the installation to work correctly. If anything goes wrong, the installation files will usually reside in Program Files/Common Files/Adobe, along with a setup log that is usually useless.
