Hi all !

We are about to start a big update and refresh of our supported hardware 

We would like to make it more useful and clear than it is now.

To achieve that, we will need the contribution of each of you fellows :o)

The idea is quite simple:

We would like all of you to check the list:
for the box(es) you might own and on which you tried to install palinux.

Then check what's written (supported, not supported, serial, and so on).
If you see an inconsistency with what you experienced, then mail us at:
with elements that would help us for an update.
Please also mention if you allow us to publish your mail/mail address.

What would be very useful is a complete report of what you tried, and 
what succeeded and what failed.
i.e. 32/64bit, SMP/UP, graphic/serial console, kernel version, etc...

The typical useful piece you can attach to your mail would be the output 
of the following commands:

$ dmesg
$ uname -a
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

!!PLEASE!! do not answer at my personal mailbox or on the m-l, to avoid 
polluting both ;o)
Take care of using the dedicated 'puffin@esiee.fr' instead.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your help, we expect to be able to provide a 
far more complete and useful version of our supported hardware list 
thanks to your feedback.
