I have had SWE running on an old P3 700mhz/384mb ram/10gb hdd and it fan fine.Quote:
can you expand a little please? What type of hardware would i run it on?
fng> I've ordered from linitx before (built a few miniitx boxes) and they were always good for turn around. Never had any need to try out returning stuff though so YMMV
@FN-GM: I've used LinITX a couple of times... it was an EduGeek member that put me on to them.
Did you also see some of the options at LinITX.com - Firewalls for adding additional storage (e.g. Smoothie web cache) or purely so you can have 8 NICs!
Im looking at this one - LinITX.com - FX5420 AMD LX-800 4 NIC Firewall/Router Platform
With the mod how hard will it be to get smoothie on this do you think?
Also i am likely to run into any problems if the logs are doing allot of read & write?
i still would personally just get a basic cable router/firewall for £30
@FN-GM: Don't know what mod you are talking about but if you just stick a small hard disk in there reads/writes should not be a problem plus you should give yourself a nice webcache.
@Midget: The drawback with hacking a Linksys router is that you have a much lower powered CPU and you don't have the ability to add a hard disk for web caching.
where would i put the hard disk it would just be loose in there
oh yer :doh:
Anymore input from anyone else please?
Smoothie usually OK on Compact Flash. We have it sunning on some nice little fanless geodes in the office - remind me in January and I'll fish out a link.
Worth pointing out we had to stick grub on instead of lilo to make it boot - so not *easy* but not that tough :) New smoothies (Express4 and new commercial stuff) will be grub as standard.
oooo when will we expect to see the new version?
