New update extends Jolicloud OS support to 10+ years old computers

by Jolicloud Team

February 22nd, 2011

We’ve received hundreds of stories from people around the world who are dusting off old computers from their garages, turning them into cool Jolicloud computers, and using them as Internet browsing machines, family Skype boxes or donating them to schools. (Have a story about falling in love with your old computer again, using Jolicloud OS? Write us at stories@jolicloud.com)

That’s why we’re dedicated to making Jolicloud OS compatible with all types of legacy hardware. Today, we released a new Jolicloud OS 1.1.1, an update which solves installation issues on legacy computers using older NVIDIA graphic cards.

This means that if you have an old computer lying around it is even more likely now that Jolicloud OS will run on it flawlessly. If you own an old Dell computer and had issues to install the 1.1, the new release should fix this.

Which new graphical cards are supported:

  • Support for NVIDIA graphics cards 10+ years old including RIVA TNT/TNT2, Vanta, Aladdin and early Quadro and GeForce cards.
  • Enhanced support for NVIDIA graphics cards 5+ years old including early GeForce2/3/4, and Quadro2/4 generations.
  • Enhanced support for NVIDIA graphics cards 3+ years old including GeForce FX and Quadro FX.

The new Jolicloud OS 1.1.1 is available for download.

Note you need at least 384MB of system memory (RAM), 512MB for better comfort to run Jolicloud OS.

We have even more cool updates coming soon, so follow us on Twitter (@jolicloud) or Facebook (facebook.com/jolicloud) to be the first to hear about our latest product news.

Happy Joliclouding!

Is there support for the GMA 500 in this release?


    Cedric

    6:15 pm

    GMA 500 has always been supported by Jolicloud OS since the Pre-Beta (Dec. 2009) but, there are known issues since the 1.1:

    1. Local video playback doesn’t work out-of-thebox BUT there’s a workaround http://help.jolicloud.com/entries/367263
    2. Flash video playback works ‘only’ when fullscreen mode is disabled

    Unfortunately the drivers are closed-source.

I have Jolicloud 1.1 installed on an old Dell Inpiron 1000. Its very sluggish, I’ve about 480MB of RAM. Will an update take it to Version 1.1.1 or do I have to do a fresh install?

    iPhoneSmiles97 on September 11, 2011 @IknowbetterthanthatYes I would still say no to aiotrbon because no matter the circumstance, the baby doesn’t deserve to die. Just think if you were a baby in one of these situations. Would you rather they kill you, or give you a chance at life? And having a “wank” as you say is totally immoral.

Congratulations Jolicloud on another release! I have a question or two.

1) Have you included this newest version in the Windows Installer & ISO images on the web site?

2) Are there any updates to the launcher & interface or is the legacy graphics support the only addition?

3) Do you provide(or will provide) legacy support for ATI graphics too? Some of us bleed red not green. :)

Thanks Tariq, Romain, Cedric, Zak & the whole crew for your continued help & support. Absolutely love Jolicloud! :)


    Cedric
    February 22, 2011

    1) Of course.
    2) This release is ‘just’ for better Nvidia legacy support. It’s 100 new Nvidia video cards supported now by Jolicloud OS, 489 Nvidia video cards in total :)
    3) What’s the references?

    Thank you for your support!

According to our lead kernel developer, the radeon(4) man page says it supports the R200 found in Radeon 8500, 9100, FireGL 8800/8700 in Jolicloud 1.1 and later. There is also mention other chips with higher numbers that it supports.

First of all, all my credits for you folks, for this wonderfull piece of software you have developed. I’ve just discovered Jolicloud, and first thing I got through my mind was; “why haven”t I found this application much earlier?!?!
Altough my complete satisfaction, I’ve got some hardware issues on my Archos 9 (where I actually have installed Jolicloud for). The issues are that my touch screem doesn’t work, the onboard mouse (track pad) doesn”t work and for the Archos has always been an onboard keyboard and I also don’t find such a thing anywhere. Can you please help to me fix these problems?? Right now my Archos his hanging on a ‘line’ of my keyboard :-(
I haven’t been able yet to check whether other hardware is working properly or not (like onboard cam, speakers, microphone, etc.). I’m more than pleased to imform/help you when I will discover any foulds.
I’m really looking forward to your reply with sollutions and therefore I would like to thank you in advance for all your effort and time.

Kind regards, Maarten

Hello,
I have a fantastic little Toshiba r100 which is now getting all dusty in the closet.
It’s a bit slow for me right now, but Jolicloud could actually save it’s life. It’s a much better than any netbook I’v seen so far anyway…

The question is if jolicloud can work on it in native (1024*768) resolution, if I’m right there’s a Trident XP4m32 LP chip sitting in it.
The machine has a 768Mb Ram so that would be fine…

Thanx in advance, great little OS u got there :)

Hi all.
I just wated to say that Jolicloud is awesome. In fact i startes using it as my primary OS. I’m glad that there is Ubuntu/Debian under the hood so the transition was very easy. I sumbled upon linux 2-3 years ago, so today every peace of software i use is open source. All I need for web development is here (LAMP, Joomla, Drupal, Bluefish IDE). Absolutely every peace of software is available for free. I just hope Jolicloud DOESN’T TURN UP TO BE EVIL LIKE GOOGLE. :-) Se you around and happy Joliclouding.

Jolicloud is a fantastic OS, I simply love it, and it is outstanding that it can run smoothly on older hardware. I use it more and more and am recommending it to friends. My only three wishes where improvements could be made to make it perfect:
1. That it runs on a minimum of 256 MB RAM, as it is sleek enough.
2. An option to be able to log on with a desktop user, or none for that matter, and not necessarily an online account, and be able to run better localized apps in difficult times when there is no cloud and internet available.
3. Drop out the privacy clause forfeiting that everything produced on the Jolicloud OS is owned by Jolicloud?!

Happy Joliclouding -

I have 1.1 installed on an hp with a nvidia graphics card. how do I upgrade to 1.1.1? Do I need to download it on another pc and create a new boot disk, or can I just upgrade from this current machine?


    marko
    March 1, 2011
    9:05 am

    I think the safest way to upgrade would be reinstall. Or you can try with distribution upgrade. Google out: distro upgrade with apt-get Ubuntu. Since Jolicloud is Ubuntu under the hood. Although I read somewhere that you can have apps compatibility problem. My recomendation is definitely REINSTALL.


    Cédric Duclos
    March 1, 2011
    12:30 pm

    Again, there’s no upgrade path from 1.1 to 1.1.1.
    The 1.1.1 ISO is still the 1.1 ‘product version’ but for people who didn’t manage to install the previous ISO.
    If your HP is already working (it should be the case with a recent Nvidia video card), just wait for 1.2 ;)

    Well I think you can download USB installer or Iso for cd. After that just boot from USB/cd. But first try Jolicloud without installing it (to see that all is OK)

Ford had problems with their Explorers ways back and decided on changing the Brand of Tires. No more accidents. The Ford Edge is smaller than a Explorer and larger than the Escape. My Edge has car-like comfort and get 27 mpg on the Highway (I drove from Derwood, Md to Philadelphia, PA on a FULL TANK and used a Quarter Tank size when I got to Philly! better than my car!)No this isn’t a truck it’s a miracle!

Since upgrading to 1.1, I repeatedly get the following error in Chrome:

Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error

This has proven particularly consistent with logging into Facebook. All suggestions I’ve tried from various Web Forums haven’t worked… I’m at a loss – any suggestions?

Also, is the Mozilla application no longer available? Are there any alternative web browsers?

    well everyone suggested that you shouldn’t do upgrades, but a clean install. And as for firefox, i’m using it without any problem in Jolicloud. You can install any app that can run on Ubuntu without any problem. Ty with Synaptic package manager or download *.deb package

      I should have clarified that after the upgrade to 1.1 didn’t complete sucessfully that I performed a clean install. Actually, I’ve done it three times now :)

      I’m sure I’ll get it all sorted eventually, but for the moment I’m kicking myself over the move to 1.1 because everything worked perfectly before.

      After my initial post, I did get firefox to install and run from via command line… is there a way to add a “shortcut” to the GUI?

      I’ll take a look at the Synaptic package manager this evening to see what it can do for me. Thanks for the suggestion!

It works your large muscles in ways that most people have to use weights for. It’s not like dancing at a halau, so it’s not necessarily hula by definition, but can you imagine haole people pronouncing, Let’s go to Ori or tamure Aloha!

I just installed 1.1.1 via the windows installer on a Dell Dimension 8200 with a 1.79 GHz Pentium 4 processor, 512MB of RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti 200 graphics card and it’s painfully slow. It seems like the hardware should be adequate enough, could there be some other factor that might be affecting the performance?

does the new Jolicloud work with Acer aspire one 751h with G500 graphics card? tried to upgrade one but was unsuccessful hence I went back to the older version of Jolicloud. Hesitant to try again in case it doesn’t work and I’ll loose my data.

There are only two things I don’t like about Joli OS/Jolicloud. I would like to be able to customize the pages of apps. The biggest thing I would like to be able to customize spacing and number of rows shown per page. Also, I would like to be able to put icons for “Local Apps” on the main icon pages, but that wouldn’t be as critical to me. Otherwise, I really like this OS. I have it installed alongside Win 7, Mint DE, Mint 10 and Fedora 14 on my laptop. I don’t know if you know about this or not, but when the update to 1.2 installed, I booted into the Mint distro that ‘controls’ my Burg bootloader. If you update Burg or Grub before rebooting directly into Joli after updating to 1.2, then the bootloader won’t ‘see’ it and add it to the list. I had create an entry to boot Joli and after that, Joli was added automatically to the Burg list. I wouldn’t call it a bug, just an observed oddity. Keep up the good work!

    I also see the icon spacing and number of rows per page to be an issue. They should add a way to change that.

Yup… this is true and “Old Big Blue Box” (retired 2001 with Windows 2000) and was given second chance at usefulness with Joli OS. !

I am very impressed with Joli OS & Jolicloud. My one complaint is that you can’t have more than two rows of icons per page. There should be a way to change that.

Loving the Jolicloud on my 3 yo daughter’s old laptop. She loves it more than Win XP. I get more control this way, so she plays independently. I haven’t had the chance to play on it myself since she won’t let me touch it, only for help.

There are a lot more ATI based cards out there than you guys expect, and Joli doesn’t play well with them. Until you fix that, announcements like this are highly inaccurate. A more accurate title is “Support to Specific 10 Year old Computers”.

    I’m not sure to understand what you mean but if you see some ‘Linux lines’ when you boot, it’s OK.

After many hours off struglin I managed to boot my more than 10 years old HP CD. Reading instructions I tried to boot using USB, but that just didn’t work. Than I just made CD/DVD copy of the JodiCloud OS it and vouila it worked. Was wondering why theres only instructions to use USB boot. But feels sort of cool to have that old HP working now =)
