Subject description: A small compatibility report
 

It seems that racy/wary does no more install on USB just by copying the stuff, but burning a CD first and installing from the CD to USB went really fine. Not a hint of any problems. I'm surprised how well the Racy 5.5 installed on an USB stick runs on different machines.

Haven't tested many applications though.

Thinkpad T42 - runs fine.
Thinkpad T400 - runs fine
HP Compaq dc 7900 - runs fine
Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Li 2732 - runs fine

yet to try: HP Pavilion a6622 sc and Samsung N150

Keep up the excellent work!

Update: Samsung N150 - works fine. Even WiFi worked with no hickups.

Yes, Racy is great. If you've not done it already, the service pack has some important fixes. See http://bkhome.org/blog2/?viewDetailed=00176

Thanks for the hint ozsouth.
Do you think it might affect the below?

An update:
It didn't work on HP Pavilion a6622 sc.
The display went garbled, and it didn't respond to CTRL-ALT-DEL.
I think the graphics card and/or Phenom was too much. Smile

Actually the graphics card is (contrary to the specs)
NVIDIA GeForce 9300 GE.

Still,not bad at all. Smile

(BTW why is it that these days the funny face has no nose anymore?)

Don't think the sp will fix that. Could try ctrl-alt-backspace, & then (if console appears, as it should) run xorgwizard.
Could also, from bootup screen, run 'puppy pfix=nox' & then run xorgwizard when console appears.
