There are two main things I want to know about the new Dapper Drake release.

  • If I don't enable XGL, is it still very slow on an 800Mhz with 256MB RAM? That's all I have right now, unfortunately. I's po.
  • Can I still install Apache and PHP4 without much hassle? Unfortunately my project I'm working on still requires this because not until PHP5+ (5.5, 6, etc.) comes out will I consider making my code work in PHP5. I'm that kind of conservative programmer. I found, oddly enough, that when I upgraded from Hoary to Breezy, it was not too easy to get Apache and PHP4 installed with all the modules I needed unless I followed a certain sequence with apt, and it wasn't very straightforward and obvious.

XGL is not as default. gnome is how ever you could get xubunu which has xfce which is lighter


Php4 and 5 are in the apt sources.

I ran Xubuntu on a 366 MHz laptop with 160 MB RAM. It was a little bit slow, but it did run OK. I would imagine it would run a lot better on your system than it did mine. Smiling
