Notes and hints for Deli Linux 0.8.x

DeLi 0.8.0

Installation crashes, DeLi doesn't boot

  • If you have less than 48 MB RAM you have to activate swap before installing.
cfdisk                # Partition your hard drive
mkswap /dev/hda2      # if your swap drive is /dev/hda2
swapon /dev/hda2

Or you can choose the swap partition during installation. If you do so it is a good idea to make sure the partition it wants to use is your swap partition.

Otherwise the installation crashes, because pacman uses too much memory.

We are working on a lightweight pacman replacement, see development notes
