Hello guys. Total Kolibri-newbie here.
Super fast loading of this OS from a memory stick, and simply an impressive piece of work! The problem is, I can't connect to the network from my old laptop, which is a Dell Inspiron 6400 (it was quite a popular model back then). The networking tool shows missing drivers, and that's not much of a surprise I guess, but it feels very limiting. I have no idea what amount of work is involved in writing such drivers, but anyway, these are the options I have on this machine:
- A wireless card from Intel. The windows driver says "Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection, (R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN" and the network program in Kolibri says Vendor is 8086, Device is 4222
- An ethernet adapter from Broadcom, driver name "Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller", Vendor is 14E4, Device 170C.
If I could go online while playing around with this, that would be great, but in any case, thumbs up for your project.

Wireless network support will not happen anytime soon.
Broadcom 440X Ethernet is not currently supported but not that difficult.
If you are comfortable with x86 assembly and understanding low level C code, you could do it yourself
I could do it for you, but I don't have the hardware (cheapest I found in my region is 25 euros without shipping) and I haven't got much time lately..
