WAS 6.30 Installation on IBM

Hi,

Has anyone attempted to install on an IBM thinkpad t21? (256MB, 796Mhz)Â Â What were your results? acceptable, too slow?

Please let me know.

Thanks,

    IBM no, but on quite similar configuration - on my SONY Vaio SRX51P/A (256MB, 800Mhz). It was fine, actually run very smooth after some manual tuning.

    But this is w/o the IDE.

    Greetings,

    Mike,

    I tried it on the equivalent machine but it was way to slow for me...

    I ended up installing it on my home desktop (the 90 days trial) with 1GHz and 512 MB.

    Using NW Development Studio this still performs acceptable.

    It is however for sure not a processor problem ....

    Regards

    Thorsten

      I installed the CD on my IBM t22 and had several issues.  I put it on my home machine and it works great (1gz/1gbram).

    Hi Michael,

    the most important point is the available memory. I'm afraid, 256 MB are not enough to work efficiently, at least if you want to run the server AND the Developer Studio locally at the same time.

    Regards

    Stefan

      I am running at home on a 256mb 700mHz Sony Vaio, using server and IDE.  Although it runs slowly (and the installation takes about 3 hours), for my purposes it suits just fine - it sure beats driving 80 miles to my workplace desktop system!
