I had a hunch that this was your PATA to SD card problem, not OpenChrome
Version 0.4.0 or later problem since I got Puppy Linux 5.7.1 and OpenChrome
Version 0.4.0 working with my own Wyse C00X (it cost me $20 to obtain one, but
I do not mind a small amount like this).
Plus, the code was working with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS all the way to 14.04 LTS.
I am glad that you were able to see yourself that the code was fixed some time
    Although this is not crucial to you, I still plan to fix the code path that
initializes VT1632A TMDS transmitter for DVI display output.
I still have not figured out the exact cause of why it does not work with VX855
chipset, and this is the reason I still have not committed the changes to
repository yet.
When I see some good results, I will make code commits.
I am still not a fan of Puppy Linux, but I will keep a copy in one of my USB
flash memory sticks for testing purposes.
