I'm not sure if anyone has managed to get it going in Linux.
A general solution to running Steam games on Linux might be applicable, if there is one.

You could consider running a windows emulator, this is what I do in osx.

It's years since I used Linux, so wouldn't have a clue myself.

here are some experiences with Proton/Steam Play (which can be activated in the steam settings in the beta steam version):

it looks like the base game works (with some problems) with an alternative launcher, but not as it is.

Old disks with working bits are always a great find!
Let us know how you get on.

I recently inherited an old computer which I can use to boot from my old external - haven't seen the inside of that OS in around 5 years (it's got all my map-making stuff on it), now I have to find my old Homeworld iso..., and then some time Wink

Use playonlinux. It installs wine and all other software if necessary. I use it, and HWRM works just fine on Manjaro KDE (using Steam under wine, the native Linux-based Steam won't do it). If you have Intel GPU you need some additional tweaks, with nvidia/AMD you should be fine.
