Can't play video or music on lite 15.3

Default on Puppy is Openbox.

Ah, OK.
Thanks. It has been a quite while, I used Puppy.
I must get confused with some other distro.

It did not found full-upgrade command.
do i proced to reboot?

I wonder if this is one of those 1 GB RAM netbook.
I upgraded mine to 2GB RAM (max it can take).
But if it has only 1GB, even Zorin 15.3 is a bit of a limit.


I can paste the output here but my terminal is in ptbr so idk if it will help

Can you tell me how much RAM in this netbook?
Better yet, it would be nice to have a CPU info as well.

Yup, it has the same CPU and same amount of RAM as my HP Mini. I think you'd be better off using lighter OS than Zorin.
My favourite one is Bodhi Linux.
It is also Debian base and easy to find a way around.


Antix is a good one, too.

Looking at those specs, I must agree. Zorin OS Lite is pretty amazing but...


Yes, there is a limit.
I must agree.

Yeah, i think that's it for today. :confused:

An earlier kernel (5.0) might help... But still would see slowness.

I'll try antix and bodhi. It's a shame tho, I was likin zorin. Maybe Ill try it on my main desktop

I tried almost everything and anything you can think of.
But really, you cannot do very much with those Atom CPUs.
Mine is kind of a souped-up version, has been flashed with mod BIOS etc. But even then Zorin Lite is NOT very light on it.

Actually this HP MIni was the first Hackintosh machine I created (Snow-Leo). Back in those days OSX was much much lighter.

Bodhi is aesthetically quite pleasing.
It has a nice animated desktop.

Antix - if you can live with that design, it is a super light and good OS.
