I presume i have to stay away from standard KDE or GNOME...

You can actually use KDE with 512 MB RAM. I have just installed such and old laptop.

There's a trick to free about 75 MB RAM if you don't use kontact/kmail/kaddressbook and so on and you don't care about indexed desktop search.

On a default installation, these processes are being run no matter if you use those above or not:

2564 ? SNl 0:00 /usr/bin/nepomukservicestub nepomukstorage
2569 ? SNl 0:32 /usr/bin/virtuoso-t +foreground +configfile /tmp/virtuoso_XM2564.ini +wait
2577 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_contacts_resource --identifier akonadi_contacts_resource_0
2578 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_contacts_resource --identifier akonadi_contacts_resource_1
2579 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_contacts_resource --identifier akonadi_contacts_resource_2
2580 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_contacts_resource --identifier akonadi_contacts_resource_3
2581 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_contacts_resource --identifier akonadi_contacts_resource_4
2582 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_contacts_resource --identifier akonadi_contacts_resource_5
2583 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_contacts_resource --identifier akonadi_contacts_resource_6
2584 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_contacts_resource --identifier akonadi_contacts_resource_7
2585 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_contacts_resource --identifier akonadi_contacts_resource_8
2586 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_ical_resource --identifier akonadi_ical_resource_0
2587 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_maildir_resource --identifier akonadi_maildir_resource_0
2588 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_maildispatcher_agent --identifier akonadi_maildispatcher_agent
2589 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/akonadi_nepomuk_contact_feeder --identifier akonadi_nepomuk_contact_feeder

So the trick is to disable Nepomuk in KDE Desktop Configuration/Desktop Search, then proceed to erase RPMs like kontact, kmail, kaddressbook, libnepomuk/akonadi and reboot until those processes are not started anymore.

Maybe there's a more elegant way to disable those other than just erasing them. If anyone knows how, please share with the list.
