Argh! So close!
I'm installing Debian because it is the only one I've seen that even talks
about machines with 4M of ram.
This is an old, Ascentia 800N laptop, 4M ram, something round 512M
Partitions are 300+M Linux native, 2M minix for temp install, and 82M+ for
Using the Debian low-mem install. All goes well until booting from the
harddrive. I avoid installing any new modules.
Several messages appear during startup, exclaiming they cannot allocate
modprobe complains its out of memory
grep complains about memory
libc.so.6: cannot map zero-fill pages: cannot allocate memory
Argh! Has anybody managed to pull this off? Do you have any pointers?
I'll trade Shiner Bock for some good hints (srma)!
