Re: Linux on 486DX/33 with 4MB RAM
Wow! That's pretty good.
Yeah, Ioaded Slackware 8.1 on a P133 wiith 32MB of RAM. It was just
barely usable with the stock kernel (works great with Opera - too
slow for Mozilla). Of course you could just forget Mandrake or Red
Hat on this hardware. I had a notebook, P100 32MB RAM, that I
loaded Tiny Linux on. Works great! It's based on Slackware 4. I
had no cdrom or networking. I used diskette to load a base and then
PLIP and NFS to get the rest. The hard drive is 660MB and I have
used less than half and I have most of the stuff I'd need on a road
trip (since adding a network card).
