Re: lower window manager

Hi,

I have recently installed Fedora on a Pentium 200 MhZ with 128 MB mem.
The console runs fine but graphical mode is bad with KDE 3.2.
Can anyone recommend a less resource-intensive window manager with still
a bit of luxery (e.g. can I run Konsole without KDE? I like tabs...)

There a quite a few around if you check the archives - look for threads about installing FC on low-spec machines. I put icewm on my P266/160MB laptop successfully and could select it at the graphical login. I also managed to get it to be the default desktop with a bit of tweeking of config files. There are other wm's which work too and I'm sure you'll get good advice from those who have tried them.


If you do go down that route remember that you'll lose a lot of the facilities which GNOME and KDE provide but you will still be able to run GNOME and KDE apps as you have the libraries installed.
