What works

The program installs, updates, and runs correctly, although the most recent updates apparently require the dongle to be recognized. Updated correctly through version 4.0.P

Graphics seem quite good, but since I am unable to do actual testing and motion, that may be a bad assumption.

I use the ATI proprietary driver version 13-6-beta

What does not

USB dongle is not detected by SIM, although dmesg shows: 

[ 4064.152188] usb 2-2.1.7: new low-speed USB device number 10 using ehci-pci
[ 4064.250418] usb 2-2.1.7: New USB device found, idVendor=1781, idProduct=0898
[ 4064.250430] usb 2-2.1.7: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[ 4064.250437] usb 2-2.1.7: Product: PxRC PhoenixRC USB Interface
[ 4064.250442] usb 2-2.1.7: Manufacturer: Runtime

User manual is not correctly loaded when opened from software, although pdf files are there. Acrobat fails to show pages. Perhaps acrobat does not work correctly under wine.


What was not tested

Unable to view aircraft and unable to test SIM since dongle is not detected by software.

Additional Comments

Apparently the only remaining problem is getting the software to recognize the Phoenix USB dongle. Everything seems to work, otherwise. My wine version is 1.5.903 via snapshot from a recommended OpenSuSE repository.

For those who wants to play PhoenixRC under wine, please download this app ; connect phoenixrc interface to your pc, start log.exe in windows (I think XP would be the best) and when 0,1,j,c appears, two files should be created .. please send me files "log.txt" and "log2.txt" to email zexx86 [at] gmail [dot] com
Output in both files are very usefull for me (system data from OS, nothing personelly) as I am very near to working HID implementation in wine, I cant do it while I dont have this interface. Thanks

Please confirm that this is not going to provide information to crack the software, the usb interface is also a dongle.

Am I correct in assuming that since you don't ask for the simulator to be started that this info will not be contained? Also does the fact that it is also a dongle mean that a driver is much less likely to work? Thanks
