"the way LL is running (on USB, which would be 2.0"  Probably this.

Also, I believe the 4.x series should run on your machine just fine. 4G is plenty of RAM for most of the things you want.

On Topic / Firefox not fast enough for video
« Last post by mc_L20 on Today at 01:15:23 AM »
Based on suggestions in another thread I downloaded and am currently testing LL3.8 64 bit on a USB stick. Amazingly, LL was able to find my WIFI device and connect right away. This was the first major hurdle I expected because most of the other distros I tried couldn't connect; I am really pleased, and am actually posting this from the old machine. :)

Firefox though is a bit too slow, at least with video playback; the audio is fine but there's a lag with video, even with 360p. (I don't need high-res videos; I just want them to be watchable.) I'm not sure whether this is the browser, the way LL is running (on USB, which would be 2.0 on this machine), or the WIFI connection (a Verizon Jetpack, which is a cellular device). I've never seen a lag like this before. If anyone has any ideas about what's going on here and what I can try to speed things up I would love to hear them.

Thank you everyone.

Other / [ SOLVED ] [SOLVED]Unable to load GUI
« Last post by Foxtrot Sierra on April 03, 2020, 06:53:24 PM »
Hello, everyone!
So, after shutting my laptop down today, I went off for a few hours and came back. When I tried booting, the laptop failed to load the GUI.

After conversing with a friend about this, I came here for help. The error message below is what showed up, and after this is basically just a black screen.


If anyone could help me resolve this, it would be greatly appreciated  :)

Installing Linux Lite / Re: Older versions, requirements

Thank you everyone. This machine is 64-bit. (Sorry, it didn't occur to me to include that in the OP.)

I think I'll try 3.8 and see how that does, assuming I can get a connection. If I can't I'll be back with another question/thread.

If 32bit LL3.8 for sure...


If 64bit - it might fair decent with LL4.x you have 4gb ram (there is a LL3.8 64bit too - LL4.x is 64bit only)


It has 4gb so bits it right on the cusp (check it)


I have a Dell netbook mini - with 1gb, running LL3.8 its usable.. Heaving browsing youtube etc pushes it...


You can make use of the 16gb you have to test both on hardware (install from USB) and depending which you like... I would wipe windows for a full install...
XP and 7 are no longer supported (back up anything you want to keep)... Unless you really want 7...

I agree, Lite 3.8 is a good bet. I have it on a 10 yr. old Gateway desktop, with original graphics, and it works perfectly. I did need to install Nvidia driver 304, as the default drivers had problems. all you do if that happens is run Install Drivers. If it doesn't show the Nvidia 304, make sure you update. (In fact, always a good idea to update immediately after installing). Lite 3.x series is still supported another year.
