What was not tested
Can't test any application functionality
I'd previously been able to run RM8 with Wine 7 versions, but have not been able to get it to work with Wine 8 on either of my workstations on any of the distros I've tried over the past several months (Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora). One of my workstations has an Nvidia GPU and have used both open source and proprietary drivers. The other workstation has Intel integrated graphics.
