128 MB. The only way to install 11.2 is to take its disk to another
machine.
add ram then remove it afterward :-) (it works very well)

That info is good to know,

No. It is wrong and wrong leading.
See my previous post about facts.

but that machine is at max RAM. It is a Sony laptop that I bought
refurbished in 1998. It sits quietly in the corner functioning as my
disk (and sometimes print) server. It is on a 100 Mb network link and
keeps up quite well, even though it only has a 133 MHz Pentium. It has
not run a GUI since SuSE 9.3.

I have a GUI running with my 128 MB RAM - icewm.


Viele Gruesse

I haven't switched it on in ages but I have a Fujitsu-Siemens P-II/333
laptop with 96M of ram and 2M of video, 1G of swap. Runs kubuntu 6.10
quite well, but was as slow as treacle with KDE 3.5 on openSUSE. With a
more lightweight WM on openSUSE, fine.
The main surprise was that it could run a GUI with just 2M of videomem.
The reason it's not in use daily - At today's prices, even a brand new
laptop is a steal.
Regards
Sid.
