I could get sidux 2008-03 DVD to run with the screen=1024x600 cheatcode out of the box. A needed external USB DVD/CD Drive was needed. Be warned, the OS UI setup is not properly configured to handle such a resolution out of the box. Dialogs appear to be too large in size (mostly the height) mostly, sothat important buttons in the lower areas most windows are often not accessible. Setting the Display DPI from 120 to 96 did a good job reducing these Problems.

TODO: PCI Listing etc.

Before Installation

  • External CD/DVD needed, have not tested the USB Installer but might try that.

What works out of the Box

  • USB
    • Keyboard
    • Mouse
  • LAN Adapter

What did not work out of the Box

  • Screen Resolution. FIX: needed a hint at boot: screen=1024x600
  • UI Display. FIX: needed a setting with the dimplified Sidux Control Center to a DPI of 96 (from 120).
  • WLAN (unable to auto-detect device). UNFIXED
