Re: XFree86 running too slow in Performa 6500/300.

i have been given several old, worn out computers,
i had no budget, but somehow i got the parts.

this doesn't need much. i have 603 runs sarge and
etch both fine with 80MB RAM. it doesn't need
512, the usb, all that stuff.

i pick up ram sticks 64MB for like $10. 
it takes a little more finding for the older ones, but

new stuff is very expensive...

another possibility is to get an older version of
linux. i had mklinux going for a while there i could
run kde fine on 32MB. (that's why i am so disgusted)
