Hey guys - just joined CP through BOINC on a 12-yr old Dell laptop. I rebuilt it with max ram 2Gb and a Linux Mint distro. Very happy with the stability and spped relative to what is was doing in the Win XP days.

Does that distro include 32-bit libraries? (They are required to run CPDN.)
See this post. (It is part of a long Thread on running on 64-bit Linux.)
Best of luck.

Whether you use Linux or Windows, Boinc projects won't run any faster. Using such an old computer is a waste of electricity.
