What works

Entire single player campaign (with a necessary hack for "hangar bug").

Game should be installed using "Complete Install" option. For the best single player experience, I copied over all files from the CDs to the install directory (this is optional if you only want to do custom missions).

You must apply hacks 71, 42, and 44* from XWAHacker.

You can download it from:  Put it in your install directory and do these commands:

chmod +x xwahacker

./xwahacker xwingalliance.exe -p 71

./xwahacker xwingalliance.exe -p 42

./xwahacker xwingalliance.exe -p  44

[For those that want to know what this does: chmod makes the script executable, patch 71 enables the Linux hangar bug fix, patch 42 disables CD checking (because 71 breaks it :p), patch 44 enables mission voices from HDD]

What does not

You can run in 3D mode, but may encounter the following error (I didn't have this problem when testing in software rendering, but did in 3D hardware.): You may need to press Alt+Tab to refocus the game after entering and exiting hangar. 

I had some issues toward the end with cutscenes cutting off a few seconds from the end and glitchy audio that usually cleared up without the need for a program restart.
