LXer: X crashes $15 Laptop in Puppy Linux 3.01 -- so where do I turn?

Published at LXer:

My exhaustive (and exhausting) eight-part series on what OS to run on the $15 Laptop (Compaq Armada 7770dmt, 233 MHz Pentium II MMX, 144 MB RAM, 3 GB hard drive) spent a good deal of time on how Puppy Linux represented the best combination of quickness and out-of-the-box features of any operating system for this old, underpowered hardware. I based all of that on running Puppy 2.13. I managed to boot Puppy 4, but the relative slowness of Abiword to start had me pausing about an upgrade from 2.13. However, I discovered something about the Geany text editor that could prompt me to use word processing apps even less than I already do.
