Re: [vox-tech] KDE footprint on lower end machines.

I'm curious about the lowest powered machine that can handle KDE.

Is there anyone running KDE on a PII or lower? If so, can you announce your
CPU, memory and send a copy of one xterm worth of top output so I can see
cpu and memory usage?


I'm running KDE on top of Debian on a PII 350 MHZ Dimensions XPS with 384MB memory. I'm new to Linux and have legacy projects requiring SigmaPlot so I also run W2K in VMware 4.5 (they say it can't, but it's doin' it), usually with noatun playing some tunes. The VMW2k has 128MB memory relegated to it and is a bit sluggish with StarOffice and SigmaPlot fired up: but this is most apparent when accessing shared host folders.

If you walk me through the commands to give you the output you requested I'd be willing to do so.
