Quotewine is still only 1.6.2
Quotedefault kernel is the 486 kernel
QuoteThe default installer on the current GameOver iso requires a minimum of 8G
QuoteQuoteThe default installer on the current GameOver iso requires a minimum of 8GI don't think it's correct. I used to make testing installation for every sparky version before uploading to a server.I never set more that 2 GB of RAM and no SWAP even for GameOver. It's really strange what you said.
QuoteIf you installed Sparky 32 bit version, simply install linux-image-686-pae. It will solve your problem.Anyway I could add the second (686-pae) kernel to the existing 486 on next live iso so I did ones before.But the problem is with the iso image limited space.
Quote from: Arek on July 13, 2014, 11:25:23 PMIs there logic in the code that's supposed to do this in certain cases?
QuoteMy first guess is that while we have the i486 kernel installed
Quote from: pavroo on July 14, 2014, 03:30:47 PMThe reason is simple: many people still have old machines (include me).It's not a problem to install 686-pae kernel after installing the system on a hard drive.I understand also that most distribution dropped support for i386/i486, but why we should do that?
Quote from: way12go on July 20, 2014, 09:57:27 AMI used more than 12 different linux distros and found Sparkylinux to be the fastest and more responsive distro among all those I tried. They even mentioned the same in their about sparkylinux stanza and it's completely true. distrowatch says linux mint is number one but sparkylinux uses very very less RAM and way better than linuxmint in terms of being faster on dual core 1 GiB RAM desktop. I even tried Manjaro openbox on this desktop and it has issues with browsers and the system comes to a grinding halt/slow after opening a browser and surfing the net. On sparkylinux I opened two browsers and still it's faster. I even requested more than 10 youtube linux reviewers to do a review on sparkylinux gameover and DasGregor made one such video explaining the advantages of using this OS. I have downloaded Sparkylinux Openbox, Sparkylinux LxDE and Sparkylinux Gameover and now I am using Sparkylinux LxDE. I was never an expert to judge any linux OS... but I believe Sparkylinux is the fastest and more responsive in its category. Puppy linux is faster and it belongs to different stripped version category. I wish Pavroo downloads linuxmint 17 Qiana and adds the 1. battery stats from linux mint2. format usb3. write image to usb... forked to linuxmint from image writer.... Unetbooting is not good enough. Most of the times Unetbootin fails but it gives persistence option.I'm not an expert like you guys out there but believe me Sparkylinux gameover live usb mode was faster on my 1 GiB RAM Desktop. I didn't install it. I installed Openbox and had boot error and it was difficult navigating... the menu in openbox version is a headache and taskbar icons don't include battery status. Then I downloaded Sparkylinux LxDE and installed it on laptop and it worked very well... it's just amazing. And I installed Sparkylinux LxDE on desktop and same boot error then I used booted live usb and used boot-repair and now desktop OS is good to go. Two days ago I was updating Desktop OS and the downloads are finished and it was updating and the system rebooted due processor heat and when the system rebooted I got kernel panic. Yesterday night I reinstalled this amazing OS and successfully updates the OS. I didn't do dist upgrade why because if it poses any problem I have begin doing the entire thing again.... Too bad full upgrade always poses a problem. After upgrade Sparky Center stopped working. It wouldn't even open. Other LxDE distros consumed more RAM and slowed down... But Sparkylinux is an exception. Sparkylinux LxDE is faster than Majaro openbox. Manjaro is said to be very fast and is more famous than Sparky but Sparky is the best. Top of the class.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_V3yqTunjA&list=LLABj4B6IZwUF3sGKJOs-DIwAs far as I know there are very less number of Sparky users and sparky is not famous enough but it's the best among all the famous - good - more hype distros I have used. But installing sparky making partitions etc can only be done by a knowledgeable user and I could do it. Other distros are very very easy to install. On my desktop while installing it used to stop in the middle of the process then I disabled the screen saver and kept on moving the mouse and it installed without any problems.My final verdict: Sparkylinux is the best.
