What does not
If you've activated the cooldown timers, they will stop counting down sometimes, but you can see it on the icon (not greyed out anymore), if the ability is ready.
There are two instances of swtor.exe running on different CPU cores. Quitting the game sometimes leaves the one instance running. You can just kill it then.
What was not tested
installation with installer/dvd, server selection, character creation
I've set the games graphics details to lowest available. It runs smooth even in crowded areas or fighting in a 1920x1200 resolution.

1) Ensure that git is installed:
sudo apt-get install git
sudo yum install git
2) Get a copy of the wine source:
git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git wine-git cd wine-git
3) Get a copy of the patch:
wget -O KUSER_SHARED_DATA http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=40435
4) Make sure that you have the requirements to compile wine:
Check out this link for 64 bit systems. You may want to only build the 32bit version to simplify things:
5) Apply the patch:
cat KUSER_SHARED_DATA | patch -p1
6) Build wine:
See Bug 29168 for more details.
- Change to the Loading Screen directory.
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Electronic\ Arts/BioWare/Star\ Wars\ -\ The\ Old\ Republic/swtor/retailclient/LoadingScreens/
- Rename the loading screens
mv LoadingScreen.jpg LoadingScreen.jpg.bak
mv LoadingIconAnim.dds LoadingIconAnim.dds.bak
At this point you will have a blank screen loading the server list, and people have seen long pauses while try waiting for the server list to load.
