Thread: Tiny Linux install params

    Tiny Linux install params

    I am wanting to install the slackware tiny linux on my 386, but my 386 only has 2mb ram , but is there anyway I can tell the installation that I have 4mb ram? I was thinking maybe I could set the ram size in the params at install, and if I do cheat my way through it will it mess up on me?
    Sitting Duck Security check it out

    (All right, all right, you guys talked me into it, I will just learn PHP instead of using ASP.)

    You can tell it you have 4Mb, but seeing as it is a lie, the system will crash almost immediately.

    Recent versions of the Linux kernel (>1.3) require 4Mb of RAM to boot.

    I've never booted one of the older ones on <4Mb, but on 4Mb, even 1.0 kernels weren't that quick [and their footprint was a lot smaller]

    I'm afraid you just need more memory.

    Try DOS for such a system
