Guadalinex Lite, a Spanish ubuntu for 128 mb of ram


Although it has been more than a week since its announcement, the new distribution by the guys from Guadalinex has not been very popular despite being great news for the world of Free Software in Spain. Several weeks ago we talked to you about a new version of Guadalinex, which would stop being based on Ubuntu to become based on Linux Mint. So far we only knew of that new version its 64-bit face, something that many users criticized for having old computers that did not support the new distribution. The Guadalinex team heard the voices and created Guadalinex Lite y Guadalinex v9 32-bit. The latter is an adaptation of Guadalinex v9 but for 32-bit systems and Guadalinex Lite is a distribution aimed at the most obsolete computersPerhaps the purpose of the Guadalinex team is that Guadalinex Lite supplants the emptiness of windows xp.

Guadalinex Lite brings a modified LXDE to work on 128 Mb Ram computers

At the moment I can tell you little more than what was announced on the official Guadalinex website since I have not tried it, however I will do it in the next few days and I hope I can tell you about my experience. At the moment we know that Guadalinex Lite does not include Non-Pae support, so computers with older processors like the Pentium M They will not be able to work with this version of Gudalinex, although the development team has stated that they will work to solve the problem. Guadalinex Lite It is based on Guadalinex v9 and comes as a desktop with a modified version of LXDE, Lubuntu's default desktop. Modifications make LXDE quite a spartan desktop but useful as will allow computers with only 128 mb of ram to have this new version of Guadalinex. Guadalinex Lite It also has the possibility of being able to install the software that one wishes, that is, if we are used to LibreOffice, we can install it without problems, as long as the computer supports it.

Guadalinex V9 for 32 bits It has been rebuilt again to be as optimized as possible for low-performance equipment, it still brings the latest version of Cinnamon and the latest versions of the most famous plugins and drivers such as flash, java or the drivers for the electronic DNI.

If like me, you don't want to wait for someone else to tell you, stop by this website and you will find the download images to install Guadalinex Lite. I will keep you posted.
