What works

It installs into WINE program directory, and that's about it.

What does not

CW9 will not recognize the audio input/outputs.  I suspect this is a result of WINE not supporting PulseAudio, but I'm not sure.  I patched WINE to use PA, but CW9 still doesn't recognize in/outs.



What was not tested

couldn't get beyond installation and configuring a track since it really doesn't recognize in/outs

Additional Comments

Well, in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, CW 9 is not working again. It's so broken now, it doesn't even recognize the audio input/outputs. I suspect this is a result of Wine not supporting PulseAudio, but I'm not sure. I patched Wine to use PA, but CW9 still doesn't recognize in/outs. see: and:
