@Rava, it's hard to say the minimum to run the system, since it will depend of the use -- a browser, for instance, can take 1 GB of RAM pretty easily. Here are the measurements of the after-boot:

***Cinnamon x64***
RAM: 437 MB

***KDE x64***
RAM: 410 MB

***LXDE x64***
RAM: 209 MB

***LXQt x64***
RAM: 253 MB

***MATE x64***
RAM: 302 MB

***Openbox x64***
RAM: 146 MB

***Xfce x64***
RAM: 253 MB

I doubt it. Part of this memory consumption is Porteus itself (regardless of the DE). So less than, I guess, 120 MB is not possible even booting into text mode with no DE module loaded.

So, in from - to (or minimum RAM - maximum RAM) we have, for x86-64:

RAM: 146 MB (Openbox x64) - 437 MB (Cinnamon x64)

Do you also have the numbers for i586 versions?
Cheers!

does Jay have these?

Update
He wrote me an PM telling me to use Virtual Box. So seems he not has the sizes. :cry:
I presume just checking openbox i586 should give us the smallest MB size. :)

In an email to someone I linked to the wikipedia:GraphicsMagick article as well, cause I wrote a script converting digital photos into smaller versions for sending via email, and since I was quite sure the addressee had no idea what GraphicsMagick is. (Addressee is a sufferer from a Severe case of SM-Witless-Useritis :D )

Then I looked a bit on that wikipedia entry, went to wikipedia:Fork (software development (you know how it sometimes goes when you are on the intertubes) and from there sure looked at the first prominently displayed image, "A timeline chart of how Linux distributions have forked": https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... meline.svg

And sure, Porteus is also part of that timeline chart.

a bit not accurate though, porteus should branch off slax(which itself should show a rightangle turn into debian territory recently)

IKR. I did not want to say so since I wanted someone else to spot that inaccuracy. :happy62:

Maybe contact the ones who made it and tell them about it?

Or… do we just not care about that detail?
Cheers!

Hi, the final version for x86-64 is released. Maybe you want to give it a quick look and update your blog?
Cheers!

Articles on german have not been mentioned here.
There are also many articles in German:

https://www.linux-community.de/ausgaben ... einsetzen/
https://alltagshelfer.wordpress.com/201 ... eus-linux/

Here are three very positive (!)reviews:
https://xn--apfelbck-s4a.de/surfsystem- ... nd-sicher/
https://www.computerwoche.de/a/die-best ... ,3063507,2
https://www.pcwelt.de/ratgeber/Porteus- ... 13896.html

The magazine LinuxWelt always contains a DVD with software.
Porteus (language german) is often present, e.g. in 2/2019, 3/2019, 5/2019, 3/2020. Name: "Porteus 4.0 LinuxWelt-Edition" or. "LinuxWelt Surfsystem"
A description of this (on pages 14 to 18):
https://www.itmediapublishing.de/wp-con ... uxwelt.pdf
An ISO can be downloaded here:
https://www.myria.de/sdm_downloads/linuxwelt-surfsystem

The current issue of the magazine contains a multi-boot DVD with Manjaro, Ubuntu, ... and LinuxWelt-Surfsystem
The surfing system is completely in German and is based now on Porteus 5.0rc1 (ArchLinux x86_64, Kernel 5.5.0-porteus, desktop MATE)
I've tried it.
WiFi has been detected and the wireless network connection is active after entering the password.
But then:
When using the browser: Error message "couldn't connect to server"
What can that be??
Does anyone have an idea?

The contents of the LinuxWelt ISO seems to be more than a year old.
Over here the ISO boots OK under VirtualBox and accesses the internet without problems.
And over here the USB stick I dd'ed the ISO to fails to boot in MBR as well as EFI mode.
:D
