I am now happily running Sparky / TDE 24/7 HD-installed on an AMD E-350D APU system (mobo: BioStar A68I-350 Deluxe r2). Unlike with the Exe live-CD, the Sparky live-USB (ISO -> unetbootin) came up with sound working. Gtk2, Gtk3, Qt3, Qt4 apps all work. Unlike TDE over Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Sparky isn't nastily persistent about not letting me enable a TDE root login. Swapping in my own artwork was easy enough, as was Synaptic-installing oxygen cursors (because I happen to like the look). Just about everything in the Trinity suite is installed now, except for Compiz and Java bindings, plus a bunch of useful Gtk/Gnome apps. The machine is up 24/7, running two browsers, a bunch of persistent xterms and Etherape as part of its assigned job on my LAN. (It also only draws 40 watts, compared to the 70+ watts it drew when that Presario SR1210NX box held a Celeron; that's $5/mo off my power bill.)
About the only fiddling annoyance I have with the Sparky install is that the package 'yad', which is apparently needed in that version by Sparky APTus, is stuck at v0.21.0-1, while the latest version in all the repos is v0.25.0-1, so I get a persistent alert in Adept Notifier in the systray that there are packages to update.
Thanks again for making the TDE/Sparky distro available. Here's hoping it continues.
btw There's a dolphin-trinity package, fork-name 'D3lphin', so it is possible to run dolphin on the TDE desktop.
