Hello All

Thanks to Franz Zahaurek for upgrading Slinky to install Fedora Core 3 and to Rodolfo for the mini lists of packages I have begun trying it out on a few boxes, Pentium 120, 166MX, and an Athlon Tbird. Each time the installer works fine with 16MB of ram or more. However, once rebooted from its own hd it works without complaint as long as it has 32 MB of ram. Even with 24MB it killed hotplug before carrying on. (I don't use hotplug - so it doesn't matter in that sense - but it indicates both that as a well-made kernel it handles mem constraints and carries on - great! and that at 24 MB it has a very low tolerance. :(
