I have benn trying for a while to reuse som old thin clients laying around and found that the Slitaz distro should be perfect for that matter regarding its minimalistic hw requirement. Downloaded what is todays latest rolling variant and tested this.
The base version boots fine and I get to terminal and everything is working except I cant get the network up and running. Working on that for the moment. However, I am not able to load live or gtkonly, i.e. the variants using a windowsmanager.
The graphic board seems to be unsupported since the boot process halts just before I think it should switch to the windowmanager. I tried by altering boot options with VGA=771 but with no success.
I tried this because befor I switched to the Slitaz distro I have been trying to use LUBUNTU on the t5545, and here I was able to boot to desktop when boot option VGA?771 was set. But since LUBUNTU requires more from the HW I was not able to install this litle beauty.
The t5545 in my hand is running on 512MB flash disk and 1GB RAM.
I am not very familiar with available boot options to use to make Slitaz running ti desktop, so there might be an option to make it work, but if someone know where I should look, I can do the looking. Tips are always welcome
So the question is, does anyone have references or experiences with the T5545 hp thin client running Slitaz`???
