    Whats a good non-PAE distro these days?


    They seem to be running out of fashion.

    Specs
    1gb RAM
    40gb HDD
    Intel Pentium M 1.60 ghz processor

    so preferably something that fits on a cd..

    -Mint Debian takes alot of RAM and MB
    -antiX has the most annoying WM ever
    -tinycore is tiny, useless and complicated for my general desktop use.
    -couldnt get crunchbang and vectorlinux working......

    what else is good?

    Puppy linux slacko has a non pae and I think vectorlinux7 light should work also..I have used both on the pent m with success

    MX-14 has a non-PAE edition...

    MX-14 "Symbiosis" | Mepis Community

    No guarantee it will run on that hardware...

    Well...you said it yourself they are dwindling in number

    There is a difference between vector standard and vector light and the same with antix and mx14 I imagine, Puppy is mentioned..where?

    what is the brand and model of the computer? and if it is a desktop what are the cards you have installed or is everything onboard?

    I found Vector7 light worked nice on a pent M laptop with 1 gig ram and 40 gig HD. It is a dell latitude and I still have it.

    Sorry I apologize for not meeting your expectations and will reframe from attempting to assist you further. oh great mindsword

    Kowtow.. back away..Kowtow..backaway...run.

    AntiX Meta Package Installer

    MX-14 version of the same

    WattOS use to have a non-pae version. Don't know if it's still around or not but you could check Distro Watch to see what is available.
    No matter where ya' go, there ya' are.

    If you want more choice, get a better computer. Since you seem to know everything, I won't mention anything in your posts again...

    Did you actually try Vector linux light 7.0 ? I had the same frustration with mint and several other distros but found that both puppy and vector light worked and worked well on my pentium M with the same spec, 1 gig ram and 40 gig hd.
    I keep saying it but no response so three strikes and all that..
