I have been running PCLOS on an old Samsung P4 laptop with 1GB memory. I probably should have just retired this thing, but it was a gift many years ago and I still like it. I tried a number of distros on it before I settled on PCLOS, but it has the dreaded Intel 82845G Brookdale graphics chip, and no other distro will run for any length of time before X crashes. X STILL crashes with PCLOS as well, but it lasts a lot longer before it does (several hours).
With KDE and these low specs, obviously it is not the snappiest performer, so I was wondering if it is possible to install LXDE from Synaptic and choose between the desktop environments at log (like you can with a number of other distros). I see a number of LXDE packages in Synaptic, but not sure which one to select which will draw in all the other needed ones to have a full LXDE install.
I am asking here because I have it set up fairly well for this old laptop (not counting the slow performance), and don't want to have to reinstall.
I am going to screw up my install to attempt this?
Thanks for any replies
