Best distro for an ancient pc?
I've just cobbled together an old relic from bits I had lying around. Apart from a dvdrom/cdrw drive I just ordered 2nd hand from evilbay, this has cost me zero moneyto build.
The spec is:
Athlon 1600xp chip
128 mb ram (I have two 128mb sticks installed, but one of them is not working?)
Maxtor 30G hd
Geforce DDR Generic card 32mb
Jeantech 300W psu
2 (!) usb 1 slots (at the back..:neutral: )
P.Bell 15" vga monitor.
My questions are:
What would be the best distro to fully optimise performance from this lowly old sysytem?
Can I expect to play 3d games or is that asking too much from an old gfxcard?
I have Mandriva 2005 S.E. running on it currently and it's a tad slow tbh. I don't intend to put any windows os on it at all, and I'm not needing it to go online or anything. I'd like it to use it as a multimedia centre if possible.
