Every function I tried (Everything except CD burning)
What does not
Didn't encounter any problems
What was not tested
Seems to run (a lot) faster under wine than under a native winxp install! I use EAC under wine as my default cd rip program.

EAC may require the native wnaspi32.dll to run, which requires IDE SCSI emulation (ide-scsi) support in the kernel. Some kernels have broken ide-scsi CD[/DVD] burning support in the 2.6.x kernel and you may wind up with coasters if you use ide-scsi with your CD[/DVD] burner. If you have more than one optical drive in your PC you can set ide-scsi to use the non-burning drive and not have this issue. If you have only 1 CD[/DVD] drive (which is also the CD[/DVD] burner)
you may want to set up an entry in your bootloader for ide-scsi
and only boot into it when actually ripping CDs. growisofs is known to have issues hanging when used in conjuction with ide-scsi in some cases. The kernel development team is aware of the problem and is not interested in fixing it as it is considered deprecated. Reference: http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5290
