Duck Duck Go

Custom (Wayfare)

This is a purpose built desktop used for development. It has a 1GHz Pentium 3 processor, 112MB memory, 20GB of disk and Rage M3 video. A test run used Gnoppix to test basic Linux functionality. All was okay with X running at 1152x864 75Hz.

The base install (2 Mar 2004) was with the beta2 Debian Installer, which was under development for the next stable release of Debian. A partition of 12GB was used for / and 1GB for swap. (The rest was for a pre-installed Windows2000 system, drives C and D using about 7GB there.)

The sytem has too little memory and would perform better with additional memory.
