I think it would be interesting to see how people are running Syllable. It might be helpful for people to see what type of hardware works best, for those people who want to run Syllable directly on hardware, versus Qemu or Vbox.

I know Syllable does fairly well on Dell and older Compaq equipment (though not all models) - while I've had poor results trying to use netbooks (MSI in particular). Some older PCs will work if the BIOS is set up differently than the default. I had one old PC that worked only if half the Plug N' Play interrupts were disabled. It would be better to have exact model numbers, (which I haven't supplied here Sad ) and chipsets.

Do people prefer Vbox or Qemu for emulation? Etc, etc. What say?

@jaspras: Thanks for the info. That sounds like a home brew setup, I'd guess. I've had a few of those. The chipset info is good. I wonder if Syllable has an official hardware list. I'm sure Kaj will chime in with a link and make this thread moot, because I didn't search the site Smile

Not this time. Wink We used to have a hardware info site, but it was run by one of the later dissenters, and was overrun by spam. He took it with him when he left.
