I have a small webserver running Red Hat Linux 9 currently and am looking to upgrade to a version of CentOS. CentOS doesn't seem to list system requirements on their website for different versions of their OS. I am fine with running 2,3, or 4 on the server, as long as I can run xfree86 with GNOME or KDE.
The server is a Dell Dimension with 123 MB of memory and an 8.7 GB hard drive. I am do not know off hand what the model number is or what GHz the processor is. I do know that it is a Pentium 3 with 123 MB of memory.
If you could, please list each os's system requirements, for CentOS 2,3,4. (please include any requirements for running GNOME or KDE.
Well, the thing is it depends how much stuff you install, seriously.
ie, if you installed everything for a given Centos/RHEL and tried to run every service, the RAM limit would be a major problem. The disk space would prob a be a bit tight too, depending on how much data you have.
What services do you want to run, how much data, esp if using a DB?
For that amt of RAM, people often recommend eg Damn Small Linux (aka DSL). If you search in LQ for that, you'll find other recommendations eg try Newbie forum.
