VirtualBox 5.2.44 failed to install CentOS7, 2 kinds of Puppies and even more CUI based FreeBSD in 1GB RAM Windows xp.
LICK-1.3.4-win32 could install BionicPup32 correctly. GX240 can select booting Linux or Windows xp
VirtualBox-5.2.44 for 32-bit works in 1GB RAM Windows xp, but failed to install BionicPup32 and Puppy (precise-571JP) as well as CentOS7.
So Enoki tried CUI based FreeBSD13-bootonly without GUI desktop.
VirtualBox showed FreeBSD installer as shown in Figure1.
Pressing OK (Enter key) simply by default, installer could not do key-in for password as shown in Figure2 however.
And so, Enoki powered off CentOS7 in VirtualBox Manager and resumed the installer. Enoki tested shell as shown in Figure3.
Enoki also tested symbol key-in for default keyboard as shown in Figure4. Enoki uses 101 US keyboard. Because VirtualBox works in Japanese environment.
JP keyboard assigns symbol different from US keyboard array.
But FreeBSD installer didn't respond to key-in for password as well.
Enoki found an installer that installs iso file automatically and creates MBR (Master Boot Record) in HDD.
After installing the Lick, Enoki tried BionicPup32. Lick installed it well.
Desktop font size
Default font size 10 is too small for me. Enoki changed to 14 by clicking Desktop > Font Manager.
Desktop has it as well as Windows Task Manager.
It remains 162 MB RAM, while Chrome does 258 MB on 64-bit Windows 10. Enoki can conform internet connection by it.
And Enoki found that Light displayed my site in disorder. Firefox also does as well, maybe.
When Enoki visited google.co.jp, Light didn't show any Japanese characters. It is good for Enoki. Because Enoki can test how enoki.net displays in English environment.
Single byte language visitors may be anxious about enoki.net, because of mixture with English and double byte language Japanese.
In case of VirtualBox as Windows xp is host, so that other Windows PCs can look at shared folders. Windows 10 can recognize GX240, because rooter or access point works as DHCP server.
Enoki thinks that Windows and Linux can share files.
Enoki had installed Winshot for screen shot in Windows xp. There will be any software, maybe.
Enoki was surprised that BionicPup32 didn't have execute code in kernel holder.
Old 1GB RAM PC could install the latest Linux. Enoki will be able to install Python library on Linux.
According to ZD magazine in Japanese edition, Linus Torvalds developed Git. Is he also Father of Git? Great.
Enoki begins using Linux after the Linux anniversary of 30 years this year and cannot use Git now.
