Almost everything works.
What does not
CD detection fails. The JK_.CD file must be moved from the disc to the resource directory. Cutscenes fail sometimes.
What was not tested
Nothing was not tested.
For multiplayer, the following files must be copied from the CD to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/: dplay.dll, dplayx.dll, dpwsock.dll, dpwsockx.dll, and dplaysvr.exe, replacing any existing dlls by those names. Then, dplay.dll, dplayx.dll, dpwsock.dll, and dpwsockx.dll must be set to native in winecfg. If 3D acceleration does not work, you must download ddraw.dll and put it in ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ File/LucasArts/Jedi\ Knight/. ddraw.dll can be downloaded here: http://www.jkhub.net/project/get.php?id=1804. If installation fails, you must manually copy the files off the CD. A tutorial is available here: http://www.jkhub.net/library/index.php/Tutorials:Install_JK With the new release of wine, (1.4) the -windowgui parameter is no longer required to run JK menus.
