Has anyone been able to get this working with Wine on Suse?
It looks like someone got it to work on Ubuntu. But for me it will install, start and not connect. Well it will start as soon as it installs but if I click on the link in the Menu under Wine it doesn’t do anything, just hangs then stops. So I know I am missing a few things.

[Resolved] Ok - problem was Flash version, by
uninstalling Flash and letting the Hulu install
program dl and install Flash it now works.
Still uses massive amounts of cpu
Executable in strange place:
openSuse 11.1 x64bit, KDE4.x Factory, Opera
There’s no rpm (that I’ve been able to find) for openSuse and Hulu has occasionally blocked Boxee from access to their service, of course then Boxee creates a workaround. The only Linux package I’m aware of is for Ubuntu.
I’m 64bit and the official Ubuntu .deb is 32bit (as is the Fedora rpm) so I’m thinking Alien isn’t gonna work for me.
According to Google there is (was) a Hulu addin for XBMC (which is what Boxee is based on) and XBMC is available from Packman and the addons are available Downloads - xbmc-addons - Project Hosting on Google Code but not sure there is a working Hulu addin (will post after dl and install later today)
I’ve got it working in 11.2 M-8 x86_64 with 64 bit Flash Player. Installed Fedora x86_64 .rpm with ‘Install Software’ and had to edit ‘~/.huludesktop’ for path to ‘libflashplayer.so’. Watched episode of the The Office. This is something I can use to pursue mindless entertainment. >:)rotfl!
apparently just downloading libflashplayer.so and putting its path in the flash_location in .huludesktop does not work, I had to put in /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so then it worked fine.
