Is anyone running EvE online under a current kernel in any distro?


This seems to one of the hardest games to get running. I was running Jaunty and was unable to get eve to load, I found this was a common bug but I was unable to rectify.

For the record:
Yes,I've tried wineHQ
Yes, I've tried the eve forums (ironically the fix on the eve forums makes GW work).
Yes, I've done a forum search.

I would like to see if anyone has this working in wine say 1.19 or later? Or if anyone has it working at all, how did you get it to run.

EvE is hands down the best game I've ever played, and I have everything else from windows that I use working on this distro (slackware 12.2).

Thanks in advance.

Looks like it will run on Cedega:

I know it's a pay for service,but if you want to run this game outside of Windows this may be your only option.

After I created this thread I did some more research on the subject and came to the same conclusion.
