If you are totally new on Linux, I suggest that you wait for Wine 1.1.4 or
later. Homeworld 2 does not work with Wine 1.1.3. This bug description is
talking about that.

I think you need more common help if you want to use Homeworld 2 now. I am
sorry, but this is not a forum for that. Please use Wine Forum.

You will find help here if you want to use Homeworld 2 now:
- http://wiki.winehq.org/
- http://wiki.winehq.org/HackingTips
- http://wiki.winehq.org/GitWine

You need help from:
- Wine Wiki with "FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions" and "Wine documentation"
- Tips & Tricks / Hacking Tips

You have to follow:
Visit site "HackingTips" and read the short line about "Source Code
Management". Follow the Link to "GitWine" and jump to "6.1. Regression
testing". Read the other important chapters later. 

You have to do:
- Use graphical version of Terminal (from Gnome/KDE)
- Download Wine source code
- Ignore "git bisect" commands this time, you only need the step by step
- Use patch to source code from Comment #15 of this bug description
- Compile Wine source code
- Add parameter "-nopbuffer" in Wine command line. Put it after application
name which wine have to start: wine <application name> <application parameter>

Important notes:
Verify that you start your compiled version of Wine. You need additional
documentation about Linux Console. In short two examples:
./wine /home/yourloginname/.wine/drive_c/Program\
Files/Homeworld2/Bin/Release/Homeworld2.exe -nopbuffer

/home/yourloginname/.wine-git/wine Homeworld2.exe -nopbuffer
