old hp laptop with cassandra?

Postby pehrlabel on Tue Jan 01, 2008 10:37 pm

Hi, I have an old HP Omnibook XE2 from 1999. it has 64mb of ram and a pentium ii. do you think cassandra 3 xfce might install?

let me know if this is ridiculous or if you have any pointers on making it work. the computer ran windows98 superquick considering how old it was, but i'm ready to switch to open source. thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

hi

im no expert at all but im gonna guess that you will have difficulty running MINT... im running a PIII 667mghz with 768RAM and Cassandra XFCE isnt exactly fast, its fine but nothing mindblowing.
