I'm running fs2_open on Linux. The R1 patch seems to be for Windows only. It shouldn't be a problem to incorporate the Inferno changes into the fs2_open sources but I can't find any source code patches to do that.

Or is there any other way to play Inferno on native Linux (not Wine, VMWare, etc.)?

You mean the patch executable? It's the same as the main download version of R1.

If that's the problem ask someone with a windows machine and a linux one to extract the patch and rearchive it in a format linux likes.

The patch data itself is pretty standard so it should work if the normal R1 data does as well.

 
There was a misunderstanding: I thought you had patched the source code itself. In fact, you have changed a data file only. After running the installer using a Windows emulator I got the file and was able to play.

Thanks for your support!

At least some of the .exe files are self-extracting RAR files that can be extracted with unrar.
