Re: Distro for low-spec machine
I run debian on my router, and I have about 1GB of stuff installed on it.
To include compilers and the -devs needed to compile a custom kernel.
The kernel alone if 400MB-ish once compiled.
That's the kernel source tree. There is no need to compile the kernel on
You'd be hard pressed to make a router on only 40MB's of space. It
probably could be done, but you should be looking at distro's geared for
PDAs, not desktops.
It isn't that hard.
