    Re: minimum hardware requirements for linux

    Depends on what you want to run. It can vary from extremely low-end and old ... and scale to most of the recent hardware.

    The question is ... what are you running?

    I do not think the hardware was what prevented it from booting from to the CLI. Things just weren't set up right

    Re: minimum hardware requirements for linux

    it depends on two things...

    first, the flavor... for example, debian and slackware are known to run on older PCs, especially, when it has ONLY 8 MB of RAM. Ubuntu, however, runs with a minimum requirement of 128 MB of RAM.

    and second, whether you're going to run XWindows or not... if you are fond of clicking around the menus and icons (just like you experienced in Win9x), XWindows is for you. historically, *nix systems in the older days were running only on consoles. GUIs are "in" due to demand for frinedly-user interface and, of course, graphics.

    so, its up to your choice. choose one flavor, read the docs, and try getting used to it.

    I'm guessing the bootloader isn't working or one of the drivers for the hardware or filesystem could not be initialized.

    That depends where you start off from. sachem has given a few starting points.
