Almost everything, but it required a few special steps.
What does not
A few pieces of audio are still missing, not enough to be a problem though.
What was not tested
You need a mp3 codec with a .acm extension. Rename that to winemp3.acm and place it in your ~.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 folder. Otherwise the game will run so slow it is unplayable, and much of the audio will be missing. You also need to set "DirectDrawRenderer" to "opengl" for all of the textures to render. Having opengl hardware acceleration is of course a must. On 64bit systems, you may also need the 32bit opengl resource files installed. I did. You also need the msvcrt.dll override. A no-cd crack/fixed .exe/patch is not required. For further information you may want to read my how-to, url follows. http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1035429

If you are unable to start Freelancer due to a non-detected CD or debugger, use a no-cd version of Freelancer.exe.
If you are using a wine version earlier than 1.1.20 refer to http://freelancercommunity.net/viewtopic.php?p=2466#2466
