Q:
How can I get NLD to work faster on my computer that has only 64 megs of memory?

A:
A number of things will help Novell Linux Desktop run faster in limited memory situations:

  • Reduce the number of daemons running by editing the runlevels
  • Use a smaller windowing system like icewm or windowmaker or fluxbox.
  • For advanced users, recompiling the kernel could help.
The minimum memory requirements for Novell Linux Desktop to run is 128 Megs, so expect problems if you go lower than that.
