Re: [school-discuss] linux distributions for low resource computers
I looked into using both DSL and Puppy (distros some of the list members
just recommended), but with only 64 MB RAM and both distributions listing
minimum requirements needing more, it just isn't a solution for that
particular computer. As I mentioned, both DeLi Linux and Absolute Linux
work on a machine with less than 64 MB.
Would be interested to hear if those using smaller distributions are finding
all the applications they need with the distributions or adding applications
themselves. If you're adding applications, which ones are most helpful and
most responsive for low resource systems? Is there a method of sharing the
added applications with others if you go to the effort of compiling and
building a program yourself?
