Yes me too!

I've tried to build ACID on a USB stick and come unstuck! :-P

I gave a up a few months ago so cant remember what the issues were now...

I also tried to build Limey but I think the builds that were available were
not compatible with my motherboard which is an embedded system. The
installer would run but just freeze at a point where it was "freeing up
unused ram" and that was that.

Its a shame as I have loads of these embedded things in my shed waiting for
a use!
