Old laptop runs Bodhi like a champ
Posted 10 June 2012 - 11:04 PM
The Bodhi installation was clean and easy, it succeeded the first time, and the laptop runs better than I've ever seen it run. You've found the sweet spot of an OS that can install and run on ancient hardware AND be completely usable by average humans. The number of times I pulled up a text editor or terminal between inserting the install disk and surfing the web on my wireless network: 0!!!
Anyway, great work, I hope whoever has contributed to this distribution is really proud of it, because it's fantastic.

Hey I'm new here as well! I just picked up an old IBM A20M with a pentium III (550 mhz) 128 megs of ram, soon to be upgraded to 512 with this http://www.ebay.com/...#ht_4066wt_1031 I am trying to find a good distro to run on this for light browsing and emulating old games. I hope this works as a WIFI adapter as I just ordered it... http://www.ebay.com/...#ht_2488wt_1265 P.S. is there anyway to upgrade the IDE hdd to a sata hdd?
It is costly. In India, pc133 sdram single 512 MB comes around for 8 USD with 2 year warranty.
I am looking for 1 GB RAM but not getting it.

Is Bodhis UI similar and user friendly like Ubuntu?
I'd be inclined to say that Bodhi's E17 desktop interface is 'as' user friendly 'as' Ubuntu rather than 'like' Ubuntu. Personally I'm lovin' it. Started playing with it a bit over a week ago and already find myself trying to use Bodhi inputs by default on other OS's.

Yeah are any aspects of my setup overclockable? And sorry to get so off topic. Is Bodhis UI similar and user friendly like Ubuntu? Regardless can't wait for parts to get here so I can try his out.
I can´t say but with 550 processor , you need more RAM than 512 ..
use ram either pc100 or pc 133 or any similar type..
