Knoppix on a really old laptop. Please help.
Hello everyone :)
I am trying to install Knoppix on an old laptop.
Pentium II, MMX, 266Mhz, 640K Main and 32M extended, 2GB HD with a few Bad clusters.
I have managed so far to create a primary Linux of 1.5 GB and a Swap of about 600K by using DSL. After I did that, Knoppix 5.1 saw the swap and used it. Managed to load the GUI and the background with the mountains but then crashed.
I am afraid that this happened for either/both of two reasons. Bad clusters in Swap file which Knoppix didn't recognize and very low memory.
Does anyone know if there is a Knoppix that can run on this much memory with the GUI that 5.1 has? If yes, where can I find, download it? Does anyone know how can I make knoppix scan the swap file and see if there are any bad clusters and mark them so that they are not used?
I really want to make this laptop work. Please help.
Thank you all in advance :)
