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?
