Optimizing Fresh R4 for machines with limited hardware resources

To use ROSA Desktop Fresh R4 with KDE, we recommend to have at least 2Gb of memory and a 10Gb partition on hard drive.

However, we have tested Fresh R4 on netbooks with 1Gb of RAM and found that after easy tweak our OS can be used on such machines.

A short recommendation for such computers is like the following:

  • Install 32bit edition of Fresh R4
  • After installation, remove mariadb-server
urpme mariadb-server

Without mariadb-server, you will loose akonadi and semantic search, but you will be able to use your machines for common purposes — Internet surfing, multimedia playback, processing of office documents and so on.
