Ok, I've got an old Pentium 2, 350mhz, 64MB of RAM and a 5 gig hard drive.

I need to know what in your opinion is:

a) The best version of BLAG to put on it
b) What WM I should use

Now mind you, I don't feel like waiting 10 hours for everything to load, so I'm leaning a little more towards BLAG 10000/900x. Also, I like fluxbox quite a bit, but I'd love to use the Damn Small Linux extensions to it (if any of you have ever seen them, you'd know what i'm talking about).

I'm open to any ideas.

Thanks,

Stephen Clement

I'd suggest 30k with xfce or perhaps blackbox if you want an even more minimal gui.

Um, I'd go for 30k all the time. All hardware is identified first time. Nothing <i>seems</i> so break, unless I try a little experiment or two :wink:. As for window managers, I'd go for the *box family. I've taken a liking to fluxbox, but I've been told that fb, ratpoison and blackbox are all the same thing. I have a family of old mchines and I always install the latest alpha on them. Damn Small Linux is nice :cool: I'm always impressed by distros that detect my h/ware _1st_ time and just ... work.

We could have a thread like "oldest blagged box" :lol: Blagging a PII is a synch. My Thinkpad 600 was an apache server for a few weeks....

I don't care about hardware detection, because this box uses damn generic hardware (Soundblaster card, video card that works with VESA, Intel 440BX/ZX chipset (VERY common), etc. etc. I want to be able to run stuff like GIMP at a decent pace. That would be why I'm considering 9/10K instead of 30K. Speed is my number one priority...

stevo32, 30k is /much/ faster than 10k.

Coincidentally, that's about how long the install was.

I installed Blag on a compuer with 80 megs of ram, just spend like 50 bucks and get 128 megs of ram. It makes a world of difference.
