Hi Paul,

I'm assuming you've already checked out the winehq appdb, but here's the 
link anyway: 

It says that the installer was not tested, which is perhaps a bit odd 
but the distro was Gentoo, and the last test date for Ubuntu is 
mid-2006, on 6.06, but it does say that it installs and runs (the test 
for that is here: 

The results given were:

*What works*
Installtion The Programm

*What does not*
Verrrry slow

*What was not tested*
Nearly erverything....

*Additional Comments


So again it says it installs but wasn't tested thoroughly.

What restart was it asking for?
