Everything works as it did in 7.7.7. Full install version of 7.8.5 installs fine into wine. However if you have a current 7.7.7 and try to install over it, it will not replace the 7.7.7 for some reason. Could not remove 7.7.7 from wine either. Did not try but it may be possible to delete the e-Sword directory from drive_c and then install 7.8.5. What I ended up doing was installing into a windows partition and then just copied over the directory to my FC6 wine partition, changed the permissions (errors) and it works fine.
What does not
The update for 7.7.7 to 7.8.5 did not work for me.
What was not tested
All the possible ways of getting this installed.
