Re: [linrad] Laptop

I haven't succeed in getting linrad running but I am working on it. 
Just checked the spec of my Dell Inspiron 8000 it does have a stereo 
line-in port and the sound card is an ESS Technology Maestro 3i - 16 
bits. The video controller is given as ATI Mobility M4  8 Meg memory 
is standard, 32 Meg max.

How much video memory and RAM is considered desirable for linrad?
