On Mandriva Linux One 2008.0 with Wine 0.9.56, SkyMap Pro's planetarium features work pretty well, with just a few minor annoyances, but overall almost all the features seem to work.
What does not
Telescope control! Plugged in my Meade LXD75 and tried both the ASCOM and the built in driver. Neither works. Too bad, because telescope control is one of the major uses of this software. There are other things that don't work too, such as clicking on a table entry doesn't bring you to a new map with the correct time as indicated on the table entry, and other little things that can be worked around (i.e., you can just manually create a new map and set the time accordingly, although it would be more work, but at least there's a way around the problem). However lack of telescope control is the big problem.
What was not tested
I've tested everything I could. If there is anything I failed to test, I will post it once I realize what else is there to test.
Telescope control is the last major problem before I give it a Gold rating. Once telescope control works, the only remaining problems will be minor annoyances.
