Installation, startup, and login, once you've worked around the problems.
What does not
Loading a template schematic or PC seems to yield a blank document
If you have an old ~/.svn directory, you might have to rename it, else on startup, I always had to press Enter four times at the 'svn folder upgrade' prompt
What was not tested
Anything beyond loading a template
Here's what I had to do to get it working with wine-1.6-204-g0c9321e (should be same for wine-1.6.1): 1) patch wine to work around bug 34030 ( http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=45265 ) 2) "winetricks vd=1024x768" to work around bug 34012 (you can undo this after the installer finishes) 3) "winetricks gdiplus" to work around bug 34031 4) "winetricks mdac28" to work around bug 34018 After that, it seems to install, start up, and log in ok.

This recipe works for installing both Release 10 and Release 13 with wine-1.6.1 built from source:
