What does not
- input reads every key as "E"
- menu sometimes get black
- hardly ever get crashing while loading screwed-up ROM
- Netplay works much slower than in single-player
What was not tested
- movie record * AVI converting
For me - it works so slow, and much slower on Netplay. I prefer Netplay for Linux (which it hasn't netplat :().

I suggest you to use PlayOnLinux in order to make a wineprefix
( http://www.playonlinux.com/ => Play on linux => Téléchargements )
Create a liveinstall thing, tick a *.exe, and close it.
Copy the *.zip to /home/user/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/nestopia and extract it.
Create a launcher to the *.exe
HOW-TO : Nestopia for linux (native, with different front-end)
Go to http://rbelmont.mameworld.info/?page_id=200
If you got a RPM-based distro, take the RPM.
If you use debian, ubuntu, you have to compile :
Install package :
sudo apt-get install build-essential libalsaplayer-dev libsdl1.2-dev libgtk2.0-dev libasound2-dev
Get the nestopia 1.37 source
Install the overlay code on it
Compile ( ./configure make sudo make install )
Here are the key shortcut, since it is buggy on Linux+Wine :
/!\ If you show off the menu, press ESCAPE (NOT "E" !!)
S = SHIFT
C = CONTROL
A = ALT
NOTE : There is a cool launcher with ALT + LEFT
