  1. PS/2 keyboard input not working.
  2. Too slow clock in absence of any load. When multiple tester loop1 instances ran, clock seemed to be OK.
  3. Boots OK, but unusable due to USB-only HID.
  4. Loader detected only 1024MiB of memory when in reality the system has 2048MiB
  5. When the system has two graphic cards, the last message printed by loader is Setting up screens…; if only one graphic card is present, the system boot fine

Legend of the Working release field

  • revision = HelenOS is being regularly tested on the given machine as part of the current development efforts, thus the machine should be supported in the next stable release. The latest mainline Bazaar revision should be appended in the brackets.
  • none = HelenOS was never actually tested on the given machine, but it is reasonable to believe that the probability of HelenOS working flawlessly on the machine is high (due to similarity to other supported machines).
  • unsupported = The given machine is currently unsupported because of some fundamental reason (i.e. the hardware architecture is out of the scope of the current HelenOS development efforts).
  • specific version = HelenOS did support the given machine in the past, but the support has been since broken, usually due to some fundamental changes which were not debugged on the given machine so far.

Legend of the Current status field

  • working (bullet_green.gif) = Almost all features of the indicated release are supported on the machine.
  • partially working (bullet_yellow.gif) = The indicated release is more-or-less supported on the machine, but with some glitches or limitations indicated.
  • unknown (bullet_grey.gif) = The machine was working in the release indicated, but it has not been tested for a while.
  • not working (bullet_red.gif) = Although the machine should be supported, it has some major problems.
  • empty status (bullet_black.gif) = Unsupported machine.
