version for old laptop??

Postby mj246969 on Wed Jan 21, 2009 6:44 pm

I have an old laptop (northstar - I was given it...can't complain) that has a 1ghz Athlon cpu and a whopping 128 megs ram & s3K twister graphics - lan not working as well as the : &; key (have a trendnet usb / lan adaptor) and was wondering which version might work on it. I need a GPU driven setup interface since the colon / semi colon key doesn't work and I'm not good with the linux command line...

Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You could barely install Mint XFCE on it. With a swap partition on the hard disk it would work (again just about)
I recommend one of the low resource distributions like DSL or Knoppix
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
