And since I am a fulltime Linux user, having to deal with virtual machines and all to use UTAU is hindering me a lot in the completion of my own voicebank (along with having a unripe doo-doo covered banana laptop that lets in, like, static noise of DOOM in my soundcard when AC is plugged in. But that's a whole other matter...)
So, I was frustrated and I got stubborn to know why it doesn't work and started messing around.
I managed to understand that most things actually work. The point where it fails is when it has to find the temporary wav files created by the resampler in order to play them (and those files ARE created correctly in the cache dir, with the correct pitch variations and all). My guess is that something goes wrong in some string encoding/decoding, and it can't find the files it just created because it gets the names wrong.
Anyway~ while searching for clues, I realized there was no entry for UTAU in the WineHQ Application Database. Obviously, no one can expect a problem with Wine to be fixed if the Wine developers don't even know there's a problem at all.
I filed an entry on the AppDB, you can find it here -> http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=21568
I also realized I wrote a couple of things wrong in the test report, but I can't edit it ^^; *note to self: Never file a test report in the middle of the night*
I encourage everyone who uses a non-Windows system to register to the AppDB and vote for it, (and/or post comments and/or submit new test results on your own, if you have something new to add).
To Mac users, I know a possible native Mac port has been mentioned some time ago, but consider doing it anyway, ok?
I hope some developers will notice it and look into the problem soon or later.
