Can anyone suggest a CLI only light linux distro? I got a very old machine has 256Ram and 120Gb of HDD. I would like to turn this into a file server only so I can watch movies using my phone.
I don't need a GUI/Desktop Manager. I'll be installing only nginx, php-fpm
PS: I tried DSL, Pupply, TinyCore but I don't like them as they use 80% of my ram after install. I tried install centos 6 minimal but it fails to install because my RAM is too small.
Can you recommend something smaller than them that runs only on CLI. Ubuntu server needs big memory so I remove it on my list.
Note: The current OS of the machine is the MicroXP (used 30% of mem) which runs well but I like to switch for linux for better firewall security.
