I am not asking which Distro to use
But I am asking for guidance on how to work it out myself.
I have done a search for a FAQ here, but the search draws a blank.
I can see 4 threads under 'Tutorials' but nothing explaining how to choose a distro.
I have already d/loaded two different Kalyway distros, via BT, but after 24 hrs of d/loading them Windows does not unpack them, saying they are corrupt. Before I try downloading anymore torrents I would like to make sure I d/load something suitable.
I havee seen torrents ranging from 600mb up to 3.5Gb..all often labeled as Full instalations.
What I am looking for is guidance on hoiw I go about choosing a distro.
Can anyone point me in the correct direction?
I have a selection of boxes here, AMD and Dell machines all single core processors around 2 - 2.4 ghz and 1-2 Gig RAM
OK, so now I am asking what distro
I do admit here that I have not yet tried to find what distro to use from the spce, still not sure what to look for. Have to go out and do some real work now. What I have done this morning is this:
Have put a HDD in the machine and stuck slipstreamed Xpsp3 on, and pulled this spec of it via three different PC spec apps. Most info on each is no doubt duplicated,
I have put the info as links to my test server rather than post it all up on this thread to save space here. Plus I am not really sure yet which info is acually required
System Specification for PC:
If anyone has the time to look through this info that would be great. If not I will do some more research myself later.
I did try this one:
Kalyway 10.5.2 Intel AMD iso in both verbose and safe modes, but it just goes as far as a couple of pages of command lines scrolling past then it re boots. It all moves too quick to see what the last few problem lines are.
