    Tinycore specs, from wikipedia, Minimal Configuration: Tiny Core needs at least 46 MB of RAM in order to run, and Core requires at least 28 MB of RAM. The minimum CPU is a i486DX.[5] Recommended configuration: A Pentium 2 CPU and 128 MB of RAM are recommended for Tiny Core. Other than that, you would have to do a careful search, but most modern distro's, even the small ones, take at least 256 mb ram.

    You can find a listing of lightweight Linux distros here:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightw...x_distribution

    Check the system requirements on some of those and try them out to see if they are a good match for you and your computer hardware.
