Thank you for the "unofficial script" url, but i noticed that thread (and the script) is in french (I believe). Should it run fine on an English install (I haven't tried it yet)?

Also, I installed POL, and even did a "wineboot", but none of the POL scripts will run on my machine. Do I need to actually reboot??

well it worked for me and the game launches and loads way faster than in windows -compatibility is great I even patched it to v1.6- I'm playing on our campus LAN with other windows losers -I mean users :P- (punkbuster won't work till now but I read about fixing this in the upcoming versions of wine)

well I still faced huge problems :
1- the game takes the resolution of the desktop so if you want to play at 800x600 you have to change the desktop resolution first (I use Ubuntu hardy heron 8.04 waiting for feedback about other distributions.)
2- the game setting is always thrown to MAXIMUM in everything so you have to fix that
3- you must play a little with the audio options to be able to hear the voice chat in multi player
4- I can't whatsoever make my voice reach the other players using the voice chat
4- low low low low FPS but still playable to some level

I have XFX 8500GT 512RAM 450MHz -
note: I wanted to blame the low fps on the card but the effects in the game says go to hell if you don't like me.

My plan for now :
I'm trying to download and install 3D Mark6 within the CoD4wine prefix and try to patch DirectX from there and I'll come with the feedback as soon as I finish.

Please guys I'm dying to get rid of windows and this game is the only thing stopping me anyhelp would be appreciated.

I hope I helped a little

About the patches :

just install them normally within the same prefix as CoD4

You can just run the installer of CoD4 again (exit the installation), BUT when it ask for the game patch you need to select 1.7 Patch.

However I get a BLACKscreen :( I hear the background music... pinch: Help?
