First, the post was about less than 512, and my ps3 certainly has less (256). A network install using rescue.img (renamed to netinst.iso or boot.iso partway through the F9 development process) and nfs or http works fine for me. I may have to do text or vnc installs, I don't recall. Also selecting fewer packages helps, but you want fewer packages anyway. For 128 it may get harder, I haven't tried that small in a while, but that's a far cry from < 512. > > Him recommending other distro, that is more suitable to smaller systems > than fedora > or his bitter experience coming to that conclusion? Alan likes to drop little hate bombs on Fedora when his pet hardware doesn't work quite the way he thinks it should. Regardless of the fact that he may be one of the few people on the planet using such hardware these days. And often times he kicks the drama up a notch or two, just like in this posting. His comments were inaccurate and really not helpful to the situation. > > He's just pointing the obvious.. If only that were true. -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
