itunes not working

Hi there.I'm running ubuntu 7.10.I've installed wine using the synaptic package manager.In the audio tab i selected ALSA and deselected OSS.I also selected windows XP in the applications tab.I then got itunes and did:

linux#wine iTunesSetup.exe
all seemed fairly normal
but when i do:
linux#wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/iTunes/iTunes.exe
the screen goes blank and i get this output:
matt@linux:~$ wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/iTunes/Itunes.exe
ALSA lib conf.c:3949snd_config_expand) Unknown parameters 0
ALSA lib control.c:909snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL default:0
fixme:heap:HeapSetInformation (nil) 1 (nil) 0

fixme:wtsapi:WTSRegisterSessionNotification Stub 0x40042 0x00000000
and i have to do cntrl-alt-f1 followed by cntrl-alt-f7 to even have a normal X as before.Any help would be great.Thankx in advance

I can't help with your itunes/wine error, however there is a working open source alternative called Songbird. Check it out here:
