Installer - Sorta
What does not
What was not tested
Anything past the launcher
The installer hangs at the end when it tries to install the PhysX software. Tried to install PhysX software manually with no luck. Once all the files are copied over from the installer, you can run the main launcher but if you try to run the game it crashes due to missing PhysX libraries. Tested with 1.0.1, 1.1.31, and 1.1.32 with all the same problems.

If you go on another desktop and then come back to Dragon Age window, you should notice keys on keyboard don't work anymore.
In fact, wine thinks the keys Crtl and Alt are still hold.
The workaround is simple : hit crtl key, then alt key with focus on Dragon Age window : the keyboard should work again
If you are affected by this bug, please warn Wine team about it on wine bugzilla :

Downloading the DLCs manually seems currently the only way to get them working.
You can find the downloads in the Redeemed DLC Unofficial Troubleshooting and FAQ, section 4.1.
Afterwards you can install them using the "daupdater.exe", which requires dotnet20 (.NET Framework2.0).you can install it using winetricks :
In order to install the required components for Dragon Age DLC's, you will have to create a 32 bits wineprefix and install everything there (Dragon Age Origin included).
To create your 32 bits prefix : WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/path/to/wineprefix winecfg
To start winetricks in that prefix : WINEPREFIX=/path/to/wineprefix winetricks
To run Dragon Age from this prefix : WINEPREFIX=/path/to/wineprefix wine /path/to/DragonAge/daorigins.exe
If you experiment any bug listed above, or any non listed bugs, please report it to wine bugzilla, specifying your wine version : http://bugs.winehq.org/This will help wine team to solve them.
