    need faster distro than ubuntu 9.10 mini

    Hello,

    I am trying to find the fastest possible no-gui installable linux distro. I have been using Ubuntu 9.10 mini, but it runs slow in portable qemu. Are there any faster non-gui distros or is there any way to speed up ubuntu 9.10 mini any faster?


    Thanks in advance,

    SliTaz is very fast, and is available in a non-gui "flavor."

    Archlinux gets my recommendation.

    I will give slitaz a try. I was looking at lfs but could not get it to install.

    I have it installed now but the ten key:

    [7] [8] [9]
    [4] [5] [6]
    [1] [2] [3]
    [0 ] [.]

    does not work. Is there something I can install to fix that?

    No idea (not a SliTaz user since I got a new computer), but I bet you can get a quick answer at http://forum.slitaz.org

    TinyCore. Less than 10MB in RAM AND on disk. Blazing doesn't describe how fast it is. You can build your own install or use the packages. 2.6.x kernel too.
