As for tmpgenc, it can be run under wine!...******BUT****** only the bits that relate to file access.

....well at least it can be made to install - I haven't really exercised it yet...I wouldn't expect it to be able to cope with any DVDs or anything else that requires any form of device driver.

HTH:)
