MicroClient works ok but it's a very slowly thin client. 
(200 Mhz isn't enought to boot a 2.6 linux kernel)

* Video works ok with vesa driver, I don't try with sis

* USB is 1.1, works ok.

* Some versions of MicroClient have a PS/2 connector to attach a
keyboard and mouse to single connector, if reseller not send this cable
you need USB mouse.

* Internal 44 pin IDE conector (can attach an laptop hdd or disk on

* CF reader (works, as a second IDE device)

* Sound is very hard to make work, but as J.L. Redrejo says with TCOS
works ok.

server -> pulseaudio -> thin client pulseaudio-> thin client esound -->
OSS driver

PulseAudio don't work with sis7019 and we have to put esound-oss in the

As far I know, sound don't work in LTSP, because don't work with 2 sound
servers at the same time.

Mentors sis7019 package is obsolete, with TCOS I have a
tcos-extra-modules package with some modules (unionfs, squashfs, cdfs,
aufs, and sis7019)

In recent kernel versions will need extra patches with different


The easy way to get module is installing tcos-extra-modules-x.x.x:
