Installed Qimo 2.0 (based on Ubuntu 9.04) on this old hardware:
Intel Celerom 700 MHz
256 MB RAM
04 GB HD
Not too bad for old hardware.
In addition to what is already available...
at a minimum I would also like to:
A. Play online games like those available at pbskids.
B. Play audio cds.
Considerring how old this machine is (low-end specs)...
I have multiple questions:
1. There are 400+ updates (including Firefox 13) should I update?
2. How do you play audio cds.
Todem currently says there is no audio cd in the drive.
Considerring the system specs should I use an older version?
Where would I get them?
4. The machine has a 4GB drive while 6GB is recommended.
If I remove some apps their dependencies would also be removed
and may break something. Any obvious apps that could be removed
to recoup some space without breaking stuff?
I'm setting the machine up for my cousin's grandkids
who are not allowed to use their parents' machine.
I figure even though the machine is old at least they
will be able to play gcompris and kidsplay and possibly
the online games at pbskids.
Thanks in advance...
