Re: [buildd] Etch?
I did try running Mozilla under Sarge on my Amiga 2000 with 40HMz 030
and 16M of 32-bit RAM with graphics going to my X-Terminal. I did work,
but it did cause the machine to swap like mad. Took about 5 minutes to
get it initially running. Once it was running though, response was
slow, but it did work.
I since discovered Dillo, which was sufficient for my needs, and didn't
need as large a footprint.
Have not tride KDE, Gnome, Evolution or friends on this hardware.
A kernel compile is about a 6-hour job here (2.4.30 with GCC 2.95.4),
and that is more CPU bound than it is memory bound.
