Mod Tracker - very low RAM

Post by Skorpp »

Maybe not the right place to ask but I'm gonna do it anyhow :) I have a very low spec 11 year-old Toshiba laptop (750 MHz - 128 Mb RAM) and obviously it's becoming to slow for surfing (no problem, I have two other more up-to-date computers ;)). I'd like to keep that old laptop for "armchair" music composition (while sitting with the rest of the family watching tv for instance). In the past I used Octamed on my Amiga but unfortunately Octamed doesn't exist for Linux :s. I think LMMS will be to heavy for 128 RAM so I need other alternatives. Another option would be upgrading RAM memory but I don't like to spend any money on it. Any ideas anyone ?
