Additional Comments

I had to copy all files from each DVD into a file and install the game from there. When trying to login, the game hangs and does nothing.

HowTo / Notes

How to compile wine from git

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:

http://wiki.winehq.org/Recommended_Packages

Check out this link for 64 bit systems.  You may want to only build the 32bit version to simplify things:

http://wiki.winehq.org/WineOn64bit

5) Apply the patch:

cat KUSER_SHARED_DATA | patch -p1

6) Build wine:

./configure
make

See Bug 29168 for more details.

Getting around the hang at loading screen

- 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.
