Version: 16.2.8 (Full)
Full screen works perfectly (had it running in 1600x1200), (winecfg Client.exe: double buffering, managed window)
Sound works (winecfg Client.exe: OSS _and_ Alsa selected, full hardware acc, 44KHz, 16bit)

What does not
Didn't patch with Wine though, couldn't get it to work so copied a patched Cedega install to the Wine drive. This does not mean patching with Wine doesn't work yet/anymore, just that i didn't get it to work the first 2 tries and just copied it out of lazyness. I think it's possible but thats for you to test, and submit here :)
Couldn't get windowed mode to run, doesn't mean it doesn't work, would like to hear comments, advises or solutions on that.
What was not tested
Everything i didn't state. I didn't check more graphical things or audio things cause i really wanna keep this running without screwing up the config =)
winecfg Setup.exe, Install.exe: ole32 native then built-in. winecfg Anarchy.exe, Client.exe: ole32, ole32aut, rpcrtv (or something like those) native then built-in. Wine installed with opengl use flag.

This step-by-step guide will help you install and run AO in Linux (including fully working patcher and launcher). Note that this guide is COMPLETELY UNSUPPORTED.
Funcom support staff will NOT help you with anything related to this
guide, or any problems you might encounter with the install while
playing using this setup.
1) Download the Wine source
3) Compile and install Wine
4) Install IE6 using winetricks (this step is needed for patching and for the launcher content to render correctly):
wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks sh winetricks ie6
5) Download the 18.1.1 full AO installer.
6) Run the AO installer. Accept the default install path.
7) Create a startup script (optional). Save it with whatever name you want (ao.sh, for example).
ÂÂÂÂ#!/bin/bash export WINEPREFIX=~/.wineÂ cd $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program\ Files/Funcom/Anarchy\ Online WINEDEBUG=-all ÂÂÂwine Anarchy.exeÂÂÂ chmod a+x ao.shÂ
8) Run the script (if you followed step 5).ÂÂ
