    Considering wine has no usb support and you need itunes to put your ipod in DFU mode, its not possible.

    iRecovery can be compiled for linux. it works out nicely because linux comes with libusb stuff already

    just gcc, and i think you could also just do "make linux"

    iTunes does not [yet] run under WINE.

    The only problem is that there is no way (that I know of anyway) to enter DFU mode without itunes.

    To OP, if you can somehow get an ipod in DFU mode just enter the following code to download and compile iRecovery.

    Code:
    svn co http://chronicdev.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/iRecovery/
    cd iRecovery
    make linux
    ./iRecovery

    You enter DFU mode by holding the buttons down on the device the correct way during a boot...

    I used XP within a VirtualBox virtual machine to do the actual jailbreak, since iTunes is mandatory. After that, smooth sailing with my boot script or others.
