Does anyone have experience of running KDZ_FW_UPD.exe under Linux (e.g. using Wine)? What are the required libraries if this is indeed possible? Or is there another way to flash a KDZ file onto the GT540 using Linux?

This would be nice as I would'nt have to seek out a Windows PC every time I want to flash a KDZ

Use fastboot, that's I'm doing for some time now, works like a charm
Search for the binary or compile it yourself.

I think fishears have it in his linux machine , i saw a screenshot he posted about data2system method by flashing a KDZ , you should ask him. I would like to add a How-to about this to my LG GT540 Reference Thread

So it turns out this is impossible. Thanks to fishears for pointing out that this is a shortcoming of WINE at the moment as it is unable to communicate with direct-USB devices (it only works with USB->Serial devices).
