How low can you go?

Postby belovedmonster on Sat Jan 26, 2008 7:37 pm

Just what sorta specs do I need to run Fluxbox Mint? How low can I go? I've got an idea of putting this on some really ancient hardware I have lying around but I wanna know if I'm trying to resurrect stuff that even Fluxbox wont work.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

It needs a bit more than the least resource hungry editions
No idea how low you can go with the cpu, but at least a PII
RAM could go with 128 MB but I would not recommend it. If you create a swap partition before you install or with Knoppix or DSL before you boot the live CD it helps
Hard disk at least 5 GB
Video card - again I don't know how far back you could go, but the problem getting drivers is probably the limiting factor here unless you want to use vesa

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
