[Wine] program doesn't work, wine returns without message

Hi List,

I'm new to wine so please forgive me if I ask silly questions.

I have a program here called matikus.exe which is some mathematical education program for kids. It runs under Win98, but I don' want to reboot my linux box (ubuntu 5.10 on AMD K6-2 500) just for that single win proggy.

This program resides on CD and when I start it under wine I just get the prompt back after some short time without any error message. The only thing that is printed is

  sizeof(RADEONDRIRec) == 100, devPrivSize 100

but I get this message also from programs like glxinfo.

How can find out why wine fails to start this program. I don't think it has any high system requirements. It consists of some 2D graphics animations and sound, mouse and keyboard input, nothing special compared to the programs that are known to run under wine.

When running it under winedbg I get this output:

mstreibe at max:/media/cdrom $ winedbg MATIKUS.EXE 
WineDbg starting on pid 0x10

sizeof(RADEONDRIRec) == 100, devPrivSize 100

Don't know if this is useful to anyone. Any hint what to do to make it work?
