What does not
The HTML in the MotD is not displayed when joining a server.Â (Bug 6095)
Voice chat appears to be suffering a regression and does not work at the moment (ALSA nor OSS).Â Clicking "Test Microphone" from the voice options tab does not begin a microphone test (the text never changes to "Stop...").Â This is odd, considering voice *does* still work in other Source games (tested using the same, clean, .wine prefix) like HL2 Deathmatch, and in the parent Steam app.
When exiting, the game will occasionally abend with a message stating HL2.exe has encountered a critical error.Â You may simply close the dialog and continue back to Steam. (Bug 19621)
What was not tested
Everything was tested.
Only rating as silver because of MotD and voice chat issues, which can be restrictive to play (and get you banned for not following/knowing server rules -g-). This cannot be rated gold because it cannot be made to work fully by anyone at this time.

All things going well, this game will work in current versions of wine (wine-1.0.1 and up) if you:
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Steam && WINEDEBUG=-all wine steam -applaunch 240
Note: Your path might differ, depending on language and installation directory. This is default for English install.
Note2: Additional command line options go after-applaunch * not before. Ex: -applaunch 240 -dxlevel 80 -console
For better graphics quality you might want to use -dxlevel 90 command option and enable GLSL shaders via registry (save this to a "file.reg" then import with 'wine regedit file.reg'):
Note: GLSL is enabled by default as of wine-0.9.49
For better performance use -dxlevel 80 or even 70 and the following game settings:
cl_drawmonitors 0 r_WaterDrawRefraction 0 r_WaterDrawReflection 0Also you can disable GLSL.
(i) In the past Steam updates have been followed by serious errors running CS:S (or even just steam), including serious lockups. When running after an update, be sure that you're ready to switch to another tty at the first sign of trouble - preferably having a "wineserver -k" sitting ready in it just in case. Just a thought.
(ii) Sound latency issues (skipping, popping as everything struggles to keep up) - most notably sudden lag during firefights can sometimes be cleared up by running "soundlist" in the CS:S console. This is a more general CS:S issue, nothing to do with wine.
If you have other good resource (at least as good as ones above) send vitamin a message with the link.
