Pentium 2?
« on: April 03, 2007, 11:09:13 am »
This is what I am hoping to acheive with LinuxMCE.  I have a pentium 2 with about 300mb of ram 32mb nvidia card with svideo and a sound blaster live card.  I would like to take that and hook it up to my tv and stream *.avi (xvid,divx) along with *.wmv,*.mkv and *.ogg files from another computer.  Can a pentium 2 handle this?  If so, this is how I understand this. Install Ubuntu Server 6.10 then install LinuxMCE from repos. Correct?

Yes you can try that. First thing you have to do is install Ubuntu 6.10 then download the get the installer from www.LinuxMCE.com, after this step you must  download the iso from the torent. When you get to A/V wizard be sure you select the UI 1 Static images because your pc has low resources and this UI should work. Good luck!
