  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit

  • CPU: 2.66GHz

  • MEMORY: 2Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Integrated
Linux lite is amazing to run pn old pc, even on single core processor but booting takes too much. When I start pcI can only see poading screen for few minutes (~5min) then desktop and all is normally working. Minimum requirements is 128MB of RAM, I have 2GB. I have HDD of 7200RPM. I don't see problem with any hardware...

@MuxBH28

The following should help:

Performance Tips:

- For start up (boot time) - if you have no plans to run VirtualBox, and you want faster boots, you can remove it's supported additions:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt purge virtualbox*
sudo systemctl stop vboxadd.service
sudo systemctl stop vboxadd-service.service
sudo systemctl disable vboxadd.service
sudo systemctl disable vboxadd-service.service

Menu, Settings, Session and Startup, Application Autostart. Untick vboxclient.

VirtualBox support is included and has always been because this is how many people review an OS before they install it. Having the right support - clipboard, drag & drop, network, graphics etc gives a significantly better impression of an OS's function.


- Setting a static IP address (see the Help Manual) will improve boot times, it's something I've always used myself. Instead of waiting for your router to assign you an IP, the OS already has it set. One less thing for the start up procedure to spend time probing for.
