Hi all

I thought i would give Robix a try.

I have installed Robix on an old Pentium 266. The install CD booted with no problems, I typed in the command "x86flash" and the install process took place. It then asked me to reboot which I did. When the PC rebooted it got stuck at this point "GRUB Loading, Please wait........."

I suspected a hardware conflict so i pulled all the cards out, but i had a same problems on reboot. I will try with a new PC tomorrow.

Any suggestions?

it works a treat!

plug in to ethernet port on router first

put in robix live iso

when asked type in x86flash-latest

it will in a few secs pull down from opensourcemesh.org the latest version

I have tried on several compaqs and its gone straight in. all i have had at least 128mb ram... maybe ram insufficient?

For your interest got ours authorising today with Wifi-CPA so no longer open!

@ ispyisail - I will try an install here on a p2 soon to rule that one out but have you tried a different harddisk drive. I have only done to small (no more than several gig) drives. Let us know how you get on. Robix should install and run on 64MB and up ram. I suspect the min install ram required is 44MB (with current install cd) and min run will probably be more like 32MB haven't tried it.

@ Ian - Thanks for the clarification on installing the latest variant via the live install cd.

i succeded on a different machine. (AMD 1Gig)

Must be some hardware conflict somewhere?

Unfortunate because its the old machines you want to use, because they use less power.
