Running a vanilla Statler on my EeePC : 68Mb with everything started (out of 1Gb RAM).

Once IceWeasel is loaded I climb over 100Mb, of course ;-)

There's a challenge for those of you who are really crazy: screenshot of iceweasel running with less than 100Mb RAM use...

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

Jeah!

Finaly made it to 96, 7mb after fresh reboot
running compton, tint2 and a conky with lua-clock-rings.

any solutions on how to save mem by replacing xfce4-powermanager, or clipit?
switching from nm-aplet to wicd got me 2mb wink

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

^ yup.

@niak.
i dont think purging xfce4-powerman will get you that many mbs, and if you get rid of it, then you have to type 'pm-suspend' if you want to walk away /close lid on your 'puter.
clipit - i would imagine any clipboard manager would be heavy on Mbs - has to store those clips somewhere...  smile try pastebin?

PS - I3 bbq threesome - 70ish Mb

if you want to gain 10mb replace terminator....   checked htop in a tty. 70mb.
I loaded terminator it jumped to 80Mb! yikes

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

hmm.. so thats it!

@ wuxmedia:
i love my clipboard and since i have to gig of ram to spare why dont use it...
with terminator its a different thing. i there would be something lighter, i`d try it out. and for power manager: i wouldn`t go without one. just aking for an alternativ.

thinking more about it, i just saw this whole topic isn`t really meant for me, because when it comes to resources i dont have a ram- but a cpu-frequency-problem...
which leads me to the question (may the gentleman forgive me):
What is the goal of setting up a system running on 60mb of ram, when there is literaly no usable computer providing such a small amount of it?

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

^ It's about getting a system as minimal as possible and still have everything to run within it... It is a great thread, more for education than a competition

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

Using urxvtd and urxvtc I'm down to 58Meg with a terminal open smile

I wonder if there's any more lightweight file managers or browsers to use....

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

This has always been my thing. My next try-out is going to be a pure Debian without WM at all, just using CLI smile I wonder how much MB I will gain this way. This whole thing started when I got hands on a prehistoric Toshiba Satellite with 128 Mb RAM smile Once bitten, always bitten wink Gonna start up the SUB 40 club shortly (not really wink)

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

25 MB CLI and 50 - 60 MB openbox under pure debian wheezy is no problem. the only problems are the applications like iceweasel ;-)

Re: Crunchbang SUB 100 club

Sorry to dig up an old thread and sorry for the newbie question.

Using this what options would I need to select just so as it installs with a gui, openbox and a pacakge manager, then I can add the 4-5 apps i need and have a tiny setup.

Is more better? What is the MAX sepc for running this in a VM, Do I really need to give it 2 processors and 4 gig of ram, or will it run the exact same speeds with half of that?


Thanks guys.

Also needed for business.
