Had a few hiccoughs trying Snakeoil on older hardware and most recently an Hp 5740 thinclient. Either they would boot fine but have no connectivity or would connect to a network on the live cd but fail to boot once installed.
Agent Kith has been most patient and helpful with diagnostics and advice. Thanks !!

I managed to install on an older desktop and laptop using the beta with Broadcom networking.0.1.5-Pre-Release-20161216
Unfortunately my ideal machine, the Hp 5740 thinclient (low resource, flash, and quiet !!), had a very problematic network chip and failed to connect..

Then while perusing an auction site I found a current HP t520 Thinclient advertised at a bargain price.....4GB Memory, 16 GB flash, dual core AMD64 at less than a tenth new retail... Cool

It has just arrived and despite my expectations (that it would be well used and missing a power brick) it looks brand spanking new, with power brick and even a Linux  os pre-installed !!.

Tested it with a Snakeoil live cd and it connects ! (realtek RA8111 chip)
Installed Snakeoil and boots just wonderfully !! 

Sounds amazing !!  (Using X20 xmos to Sabre ESS9018(k2) Dac.)

Very very happy... Smile
Thanks to Agent Kith for such a wonderful os and fantastic support.
