gurtid: Bunsen Labs https://www.bunsenlabs.org/


After trying out several distros, Bunsen Labs was the pick. Youtube works.

5yrs support, so plenty of time for my mum to upgrade her laptop.

Thanks for the suggestion. I might use it on my main PC, for when I want to compile OpenWrt. Cheers again.

gzt: YouTube works? Good result!


Sometimes it a bit jerky and then other times it's fine. But overall much much better than what was happening with the previous OS.

I used the 32 bit non-pae version of BunsenLabs, I could have forced the pae flag on the laptop and used another distro but I'd rather use a distro that supported non-pae out of the box, so to speak.

Firefox uses far less memory than Chrome, I guess this is part of the reason why Youtube works better. RAM use sits under 500MB, with too many tabs open the CPU will go up to 100%, but as long as only 1 or 2 tabs are open, and only one application is in use at a time, all is fine.

Thanks again, much appreciated.

For other readers, I tried Manjaro LXQT & Enlightenment too, The live disc versions worked but installation would fail.
