Hey, newbie user question here. I recently was handed an ancient Dell Latitude C610 laptop, and decided this was a perfect time to try out Bodhi Linux. I pulled down the latest legacy build (4.4.0), burned it onto a CD (the laptop doesn't support booting from USB), and tried to install it. Unfortunately, while the live-CD does manage to bring up the desktop (after an agonizingly long wait), the installer never manages to run. The CD spins up and acts like data is being read from it, but even after waiting for several hours, nothing comes up.
My guess is that the limiting factor here is that this laptop currently has only 256 MB of RAM. It has a 1.2 GHz Pentium III CPU, and a 20 GB HD (although the liveCD never got far enough to do anything with the HD).
In any case, I've now downloaded legacy Bodhi 3.2.1, and it booted up thankfully quickly from the CD and is now happily installing on the laptop.
Have you guys successfully installed 4.4.0 on machines with just 256 MB of RAM?
