Release Candidate 1 Now Available
Sorry if this has already been answered, but where are the minimum requirements for 2024? Can this also run on a 128MB RAM 486? Or are the minimum requirements as high as the full distros other than storage?
Meo, I think that data is being pulled from /edit/etc/lsb-release. I'll correct it in the next cut.
Reukiodo, I do not know what the real world practical bottom would be for hardware compatibility with DSL 2024. I don't have anything that old to test on.
If you look at line 8 in /etc/default/grub you'll see:
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`grep PRETTY_NAME /etc/lsb-release | cut -d= -f2 | cut -d\" -f2 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`

I posted a slight mod to rc1 which should fix the "Alpha" reference. Thanks guys!

Something to do with 32-bit address space? I remember back in the day, 32-Bit OSes weren't able to (properly?) use more than 3½G of RAM.
Hi BG405! Thanks for making me remember! I think you're quite right. Will make a test with 3 GB since that is easy to change. Thanks again!
