I just picked up a Promise 133 controller yesterday, along with a
couple of 40Gb Maxtor 133 drives. So, yes, they exist.
Didn't keep earlier postings, sorry therefore for replying to this
section of the thread. Anyway:
I was just using mempeak (a nice command line utility that displays the
processes using the most memory in an interval of a few seconds, from
http://www.rninet.de/darkstar/mempeak.html) while setting up a
fileserver on a 233 MMX machine with 48MB RAM:
dpkg was using up to 20,4 MB of RAM. No wonder the disk is trashing all
the time on our toys of yesteryear...
apt-get used 18MB IIRC but I was watching some other process and then
saw dpkg appear on top of the list.
Good night everyone,
