Best Distro or live distro for "legacy" PC with Flash?


http://pastebin.ca/1554459

Thats the PC in question. Its a Pile of thrown away parts that I "revived" with xubuntu for my stepson. He likes to play flash games but even with xubuntu and firefox it is quite laggy. So tonite I threw puppy linux on it (well ran the live CD) and it was actually rather functional. It did crash on some flash applications however.

Do you think this is the best I am going to get? What are your favorite "current" micro distros, live or otherwise? I have tried slax popcorn but the onboard video doesn't seem to like it.

I have tried DSL and DSL-N but I don't think I was able to get flash working.

Tinycore-2.3rc3 or 2.2
11mb plus you add the apps you want
I suggest you use the .tgz pkgs

Mmmmicro!

another cool one that Only needs 10mb ram and has games(probably not flash though)
kolibri
http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?is...090831#feature

um, you mean flash 10 right?

Puppy as a fullhd install will run faster than a frugal install
good puppies are browserlinux0909
http://www.browserlinux.com/
it has flash already installed and can have wine too

you can get games at the puppy forum too
all kinds of stuff there
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php?f=38

seems like the forum is down again??

anyway, so check that out

tinycore has supertux and other cool games too

That "browser linux" looks perfect, I think thats the ticket.

The flash games he plays are on websites like cartoon network, like us "grown ups" have pogo. This distro looks like it will rock sox out of the box.

I am playing that right now in "browser linux" that I installed to the hard drive. Set up the drive in gparted and followed trhe script. I used the suggested mbr script and it worked fine. It runs VERY light. Thanks a bunch.
