System Requirements and Compatibility

The TUD:OS Demo CD is designed to run on a 1GHz Pentium-III-class PC with 256MB of memory, PS/2 mouse, PS/2 keyboard, and a VESA-2.0-compliant graphics card. Also supported are USB HID keyboards and mice.

Known issues
  • The touchpad in your notebook may work or not depending on your notebook manufacturer. Support for IBM Thinkpad series is mostly stable.

  • Some input device configuration may end in arbitrary mouse movements or lockups. Disabling "USB Legacy" support in your BIOS often helps. As a rule of thumb: Avoid USB keyboards if possible or use them supplementary to an attached PS/2 keyboard. USB mice should always work properly.
