Lightweight Linux Distro & WM (Acer TravelMate 3200)
I have an old laptop to setup for my gf. I would love to install a lightweight Linux distro. I have included the laptop specs below.
Acer TravelMate 3200
HD - 60GB
RAM - 512MB
CPU - Pentium M 1.7GHz
GPU - Mobility Radeon 9700 (64MB)
HD - 60GB
I need an a distro for email, surfing the web (youtube, facebook)and im.
I have been looking at the following Linux distributions:
* Pubby Linux
I am open to suggestion for other distro's. I really want to be able to use the hardware acceleration on the Mobility Radeon 9700.
I would also love some feedback on some lightweight window managers to really speed things up.
I am looking forward to your responses :)
I've never used puppy, but understand that it is pretty lightweight. You might also look into slackware and arch for lightweight distros. Fedora is ok, but a little heavy. Should run fine on your equipment though
I've used Mepis with LXDE. Very light, very stable and very easy.
Thanks for your resonses.
I will give puppy a shot and see how it goes. I will also try the the WM LXDE...
