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

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.
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.
