If Steam is not installed please use the following guide
When Steam is installed go to My Games, right click on darwinia and click install. Then say okay to any following windows.
Once Darwinia is downloaded open Wine File (in Fedora it is applications>system tools>Wine File) and browse to C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\YOURUSERNAME\darwinia where YOURUSERNAME is your steam username.
Open preferences.txt and find the line that says
SoundLibrary = anyvalue where anyvalue can be anything (it should be DSP)
simply change the line to say
SoundLibrary = null
then save preferences.txt and darwinia will run fine.
Installed without issue.
Played through the tutorial level fine.
What does not
Real-Time Audio Effects needs to be disabled in the options menu before starting a level otherwise the game crashes.
Did not notice any music/sound at all, this may be related to the RTAE needing to be disabled.
What was not tested
Anything beyond the tutorial level.

In wine 0.9.42-0.9.45 (and probably some earlier versions) fonts are broken.
There is no text in game or menus.
There are also glitches with the mouse pointer.
