I'm using Redhat 9.0 in Vmware on an XP host, and have dedicated 92 Megs of RAM for the linux to run on. THis works just fine in text mode, but when I load the gui desktop it runs out of memory and starts paging like mad. Now I understand why the installer recommended 192 Megs RAM! Isnt there a lighter GUI which is less of a memory hog? M winnt server guest does better!
My needs for a gui are simple:
* Run Mozilla
* Gui emacs
* Perhaps the redhat updater (im still trying to decide if its worth it)
* Taskbar which allows multiple instances of above apps (so i can view several webpages at once)
Thats it! Anyone have experience with this topic?
Oh, I'm a bit of a Linux newbie (though comfortable with the basics), so be gentle ;)
