Re: Fedora Remix or Debian?

<t>If you want to build a full distro package set, you'll probably want a beefier machine than a Raspi for building, and you'll want a lot of them. We have 30 Pandas (dual core 1GHz 1GB), 20 GuruPlugs (single core 1.2GHz 512MB), and some Smarttops and Trimslices, backed by four x86 servers with tera...

Re: How Much RAM does these distros use ?

<t>Remember that the RAM in the Raspi is shared between the ARM and GPU sides. On the 256M versions, the current split is 192M-64M, so the values from a 256M VM reported earlier are high by about 64M (in addition to x86/ARM differences).<br/> I'm seeing Fedora 13 boot to a character mode login promp...
