lightwieght linux for old processor Anonymous 06/06/2021 (Sun) 04:55:17 No. 4355
Really glad to see this board taking off. I want a linux distro that I can rice for my x41 tablet thinkpad. It's a pentium m, 2 gigs of ram, 1024x768 screen. I've heard some suggestions >void linux >puppy linux >debian I'm a linux noob so I don't know what I'm doing, but I'd like to learn. as far as usage I want to shitpost and maybe doodle some. I've heard some say that my browser is more important than distro as far as snappiness goes. What browser would you suggest that still has 32 bit support.

>>4355 Why not skip linux and go full retro with BeOS (now Haiku) or OS/2 (now ArcaOS). Snappier than modern linux for sure and the x41 is compatible for sure.
tinycore + icecat runs on anything
>>4356 Haiku is pozzed.

>>4358 How so and how much?
Give Slitaz Linux a try.
I also need something like this but for an old laptop with just 500MB ram. I've looked up which distros I could use for this once but I came up with names I had never heard before and I didn't go through with it. >>4355 I've run Debian on VMs with 2gb of ram just fine, though I imagine there are better alternatives for something you're going to be using constantly with multiple programs concurrently. I was just interested in running one or two programs and then shutting it down.
