For the moment, I'm testing with PII, 128MB laptop, but my ultimate target would be a 486, 24MB and 300Mb disk (I'm not sure it's really realistic :) ).
I already NetBSD (which meet my needs but doesn't support userland I2C) and various Linux distributions, 2.6 kernel needed as per I2C.
So I tried connochaetos 0.9RC0 and I come with several questions :
1/ I was able to run it smoothly on a 64MB box (in Virtual box) but does it work on a 486 machine ? it is compiled for i586 ?
2/ kernel :
- is it possible to add additionnal module to the existing kernel ?
- is documented somewhere the procedure you followed to build your kernel ? (I guess I'll have to rebuild one to ride off all unused stuffs, as SMP, wifi, … in order save some memory :) )
3/ I wasn't able to install 0.9RC on a 300MB disk, I guess because it contains many things I don't needs like ABIWord.
Do you think about a "base" distribution containing only strickly needed stuffs to make the system booting ?
