I have had a request by a client to see if some legacy hardware is
supported by openSUSE 10.3. Most of the things they asked about I
could sort out. It just left me with this:

ASUS P2B-S Motherboard (CPU - Pentium 2 350/512/100/2.0 S1)

ATI Mach 64 PCI

The system should run KDE 3.5. No fancy graphics effects. I suspect it
could be pushing it with a 350 MHz P2. Even id the graphics card is
decent. Aside from suggesting a hardware upgrade, any constructive

Looks fine to me except for the KDE bit - I've just installed 11.0 on a
PII 333MHz with 96Mb - doesn't run KDE, only runs a server.

This does have 250 MB of RAM. I have said that as a minimum, they will
need more. I also asked if the MBs were a standard size. Perhaps they
should update them instead of fighting.

But at least the kernel is happy with this vintage CPU.

So all of Stockholm's warmth is in Zûrich, it seems. We have had a
really cold June. I expect to see polar bears if this keeps up :)
