Minimum requeriments of SCO OpenServer Rel 3.2v5.0.2

Post by Pedro Día » Thu, 08 Oct 1998 04:00:00



I have installed Sco OpenServer on my machine (a 133 Mhz Pentium).

I would like to know the minimum requeriments for this Operating System
about memory, hard disk, etc.

I have read a lot of documentation, but I've not found these features.

Could anyone to help me?

My main machine is a 100MHz 486DX/4 with 64Mb RAM and a 540Mb disk.
It's not exactly fast, but I find it acceptable.  The only thing is that
disk space is _very_ tight.

My Openserver 5.0.0 Development machine was a 486 DX66 with 16MB of Ram and
about 800MB of HD. - The os and custom install fitted in about 350MB at
that stage ( its probably about 500 MB now)

It got upgraded to 32Mb and 2 GB HD before being relegated to a W95 box
( - it ran Osr5 faster than it runs W95).

I'd say that same system with a (32Mb Mem and 1GB disk)
would still be runnable but not very enjoyable.

We use P90's with 32Mb of RAM and 1-2GB HD as lab machines - they're OK.

Anything CPU from a P120, mem from 32MB, Disk from 1GB should be more
than adequate ... (adding memory makes the most difference).

I have 5.02 running on a 33mhz 486, with 32 MB memory. As far as disk, I
think you need about 200 MB, and you can't even *buy* a disk that small any
more.

Of course, I'm not saying it runs *fast* on the above machine......

Depends what you want to do with it.  The minimum install requires more
disk space than the minimum Linux install, but otherwise I would suspect
that it would run on the sort of 4MB 386/SX that Linux would run on. (X
is very sluggish on 4 and 6MB systems, so I wouldn't suggest serious use
of X at this sort of memory.  (3.2v4.2, at least, has less flexible memory
management, so may need a little more room.)

We have certainly run 3.2v4.2 on 16MB 486s in the past.

Not hardly.
   5.0.0/5.0.2   16 meg min, 32 realistic min                    500 meg
   5.0.4             {same}                                      800 meg
   5.0.5         32 meg (floppy install), more for cd install    800 meg

You can use less disk space but these numbers will give a reasonable
comfortable environment.

That was a circa 1992 system

5.0.5 will quite happily install onto a 16MB 486 - I have one right
next to me.
32MB is only the recommended, not minimum requirements.

Cheers,
Dave.

And I could probably do it in less but to post such information is
to do a disservice to the vast majority of users who want a usable,
stable system that will install out of the box.  Post practical
numbers, not toy figures from hacked systems.
