I ran a mixed system until very recently without any noticeable
issues (until the breakage got too much). I'd like to do a backport
of wine but I've never managed to get anything to build (or even
configure) apart from the kernel and nvidia module, both of which
have their own dedicated build tools. So if this works it will be a
first! :)
