What works

Seems to start coming up, it draws the screen successfully but then it fails and hangs.

What does not

Nook worked well at the Ubuntu 11.04 level, but it won't come up under wine 1.3.30 and Ubuntu 11.10.  I get the following message and then it hangs and requires the task be cancelled.

We are sorry, but this Barnes & Noble application
has encountered a problem and it needs to close
(code 001).


What was not tested

Could partially bring up the Nook software, it put up the first screen successfully, but it hung before I hit a button and required it's process to be killed. So I was not able to test it's basic functionality.

Additional Comments

It may be something easy, but it wasn't obvious to me.
