Install, updating to the OpenGL patch and playing, gameplay, no problems so far.
What does not
Nothing I can think of.
What was not tested
D3D and Software rendering because these two are slow.
Tested on a Geforce 7600GT with 169.09 driver. ALSA used for sound.

Game installs without problem from setup file located at wcnews. Download and install starter pack, then download and install following episodes.
Applying OpenGL patch
It install flawless and adds OpenGL support for the game, please download it from here.
In order to get the max from the game following video modes should be used.
OpenGL delivers full fps and high resolution support, this is the recomended video mode to be used.
A Glide wrapper can be used in systems that OpenGL show problems, download it from here http://www.zeckensack.de/glide/
D3D and Software rendering modes should be avoided because these are proven to be really slow.
* Before testing I have found that most Intel GMA cards aren't powerful enough to run this game under wine.
In order to play Secret Ops you had to register your pilot, it was a free registration just to track uses and submit scores, but as Origin site is no longer active, it can be done in this site.
