    Oh my god! I was just messing about and I actually got it to boot on my MacBook Pro, am now playing with it! Wireless works, that's what I know so far. Is REALLY smooth too!

    Okay, having technical difficulties here, Posterous is lagging this morning.

    A few things...

    [​IMG]

    1) I only got it to run off the CD, did get it to install on the disk/grub loaded but wasn't configurated properly, and my lack of a decent keyboard helps (notice how my keyboard is all smashed in and the camera moves as I'm typing on an old Compaq one), so I haven't bothered to check yet.

    2) You can only run it in debug mode and you have to type in "exit" twice to get into the OS.

    3) To get the Internet working wirelessly, you have to go into the right tab, press Settings, Wireless Controls, enable Wi-Fi, and then Wi-Fi Settings (to find your network).

    4) Go into Sound & Display and set the Screen timeout to "Never timeout" otherwise it'll shutdown the system.

    Doesn't find the camera, nor the sound, and this version doesn't have Flash. Nonetheless, it runs.
