I'm trying to use some fairly old hardware (purchased ~2000) to have hooked up to my tv full time and I'm looking for advice on which distro to use.
- Pentium 4 1.9 GHz
- 765 mB RAM
- NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400] Graphics Card
- more available if needed, not sure what else to list though
- Capable of streaming music/video (a functional browser)
- Easy install
- Able to play out to a large screen (~30 inches)
- Capable of playing DVD's/music from harddrive.
- Extras that would be nice: ssh support, able to run as a LAMP, able to run as a File Server.
Based on my machine requirements and hardware specs, is this possible? Which distro would you recommend?
I would ideally use Ubuntu Server+GUI but I've been having trouble with the install and I think it may be due to the aging hardware.
