Hi, I'm about to install Gentoo on an old PC - its got 176MB RAM, 8GB partition, and about a 500MHz Celeron processor. Which desktop manager do you think I should get? I don't really know that much about them, so any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks,


Louis

Look like 5 posts down: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-304422.html

This topic is really everywhere so pretty much any search would get you something about the different DE's...

I use GNOME and love it.

Xfce4, no doubt about it. (I use it.) ;-)
It's not a complete DE but close to and you will have real problems enjoying KDE or Gnome on your not so powerful computer.

Fluxbox - simple, configurable using text files.... - very low memory overhead
