    I have installed FC6 + Eclipse on a 5GB partition on an old Dell
    Inspiron 4100 laptop: 256MB of RAM, Pentium III, etc.

    I used the graphical installer, from the DVD image of FC6 which I had
    used successfully before to install on an old HP Pavilion [Also a
    Pentium III
    but with 320MB RAM].

    However, for the laptop install I unchecked ALL packages (no
    office/productivity)
    and only after the install succeeded did I install Eclipse and the
    GCC tool chain
    /libraries.

    I don't know if that will help or not.

    Richard.

Hold the phone.

How much memory can your motherboard accept? 256 MB sounds like half the capacity that a Pentium-3 motherboard ought to have.

The first thing--the /very/ first thing--that I do when acquiring a new system is to equip the motherboard with as much memory as it will accept and recognize. 512 MB /minimum/ is what I would recommend.
