Is my RAM enough for debian-hppa ?

I always get this folowing lines during boot. My box is an Apollo
9000/715/50 model. I do have 32MB RAM

You'll definitely need swap. I'm pretty sure debian can't install
packages with less than 48 or 64MB total virtual space.
I have an ob6000 (486DX4 with 24MB RAM) but it takes days to update
because it's swapping several MB per package.

But even then, swapping on a really slow machine is going
to be painful. I'm not sure what you'll be able to do with
the box.


Hello, Yes
I suggest not to install above potato or Woody distribution.
newer (sarge, etch, sid) needs definitively more memory.
