If you are successfully running StartOS on non-standard (Librem Mini / Raspberry Pi) hardware, please reply here to let us know and we’ll add it to this list so others know what options they have. Cheers!
Note: If your device is very close to one listed below, it is likely to work
Caution: Unplug Wi-Fi dongles as they are known to potentially cause issues. Always use ethernet when possible. Also, consider unplugging everything except power, monitor, keyboard, and mouse when setting up.
I got embassyOS v0.3.3 to work on x86 Architecture : HP ProDesk 600 G2 Desktop Mini PC (8GB RAM / 500GB SDD – I’ll upgrade later when I get a chance to get a larger drive). Need to make sure machine is running latest BIOS N22_0259.
Running on Asrock mainboard, CPU i5-5600k @3,5GHz quadcore, 2x8Gb ram, raid controller M1505 megaraid 9260 8i with 3x2TB ssd as raid 5! (controller flashed with newest firmware) which leaves me 3,63TB storage! eOS is on an extra ssd with 128GB.
I tried software raid with intel rapid storage first. But this didnt work although linux detected the raid setup but eOS only detected the single ssd`s. eOS didnt detect the raid drive which was in dev/mapper/…
Maybe its somehow possible.
After i faild with this i bought a cheap raid controller. If you want you can buy raid controllers which are 500 bucks, but i only paid 50 bucks for the M1505 9260 8i (but IBM version) the LSI version should be faster during boot but i didnt compare.
I flashed the controller to the newest firmware, this took some time to figure out but if you know how it works its quite simple. Configuration of a raid 5 was also very simple with some youtube input.
Raid 5 needs at least 3 ssd. It is nut a backup setup but its a redundancy setup which lets you fail one ssd. When you insert a new ssd (for the failed one) the system can recover.
Then i installed eOS on a separet drive with only 128 GB.
Installed 0.3.3 on a Lenovo Thinkcentre 710q tiny. Ethernet needed to be connected without wireless dongle attached. 512 gb SSD and 16gb of RAM. Will be backing up to 1 tb external storage over LAN as recommended.
When you say microscopic text - is this just inherent to your laptop, or is the text within Embassy’s UI specifically a problem? If so, maybe give us some screenshots and we can see if adjustments can be made. We make it a point to have mobile support, but we are considering breaking out mobile, small res, and high res display modes.
That’s quite odd - I’ll pass this on to the front end team to see if anything can be done. Are you zoomed way out by any chance? A temporary solution would be to zoom the window by holding the ctrl key and tapping the + key. You can also access from another device of course
Can you let me know the default resolution of this screen?
