i8igmac Posted December 25, 2018 Share Posted December 25, 2018 I have just created a custom linux mint 19 iso that boots directly to ram. I stripped down as much space as I kbow possible. I'm sure more is achievable. The download of this iso at the moment is about 1.9 gigs. running gnome shell3 I tested freecad and ran some benchmarks. This system at a fresh boot will idle just under 2 gigs and with swap space of 10gigs of a 32gig sd card I don't see why this machine wont run anything you throw at it with a Snappy response. the system takes 2 minutes to boot up on my asus (c302c) 4 core and 4 gigs of ram. Once booted I can unplug the bootable usb device. I plan to document the process of creating the iso and adding tools, apps and software to suite my needs. ill make a few gaming iso's for cs1.6 and maybe warcraft III. I look forward to discussing more tweaks on performance and freeing up space to make the iso smaller. Also with the use of swap files and swap space I think there is a lot that could be done to make this outperform any os. There is also hopes to find some advanced grub users that may help configure a chromebook to boot from sd card. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
