I have a very old laptop with 16Megs of RAM running in graphical mode, and a 32Meg swap DIR, and its dual booted with Win 95, you must have a SWAP dir or file in order for it to be able to do much of anything
Dont expect much out of DSL with only 16Megs of RAM, I use my laptop as a kind of WAP detector (airsnort rocks), but YMMV.
Also if you boot fluxbox in enhanced mode but without desktop ICONS it helps alot...all those pretty pictures really eat up the RAM/SWAP really fast
You can tell your DSL to boot directly enhanced without ICONS by modifying your /root/.xinitrc file and make it like this
|# put X windows programs that you want started here.|
# Be sure to add at the end of each command the &
grep plain /proc/cmdline >/dev/null
if [ $? == 1 ]; then
enhance &>killall -9 xtdesk &
#dillo -f /usr/share/doc/damnsmall/getting_started.html &>/dev/null &<---this eliminates the popup when X starts
Hope this helps
