Hmm, Does a Sparcstation 20 really have enough processing power
to run KDE ?
I get acceptable Performance from my SunBlade 100 which has
a 1280 MB RAM. A SparcStation 20 has only a ten'th of the
processingpower of a Blade100. Sunsolve says that a Sparcstation 20
can have 7*64 MB Dram = 448 MB RAM which certainly is enough.
However you will need a minimum of 96 MB RAM to run Solaris 9 at all.
And at least 192 MB Ram to have a non-swapping graphics environment.
KDE is on the SUN Software Companinon CD included in the mediakits
for Both Solaris 8 and Solaris 9.
If memory serves :
KDE 2.2.0 is on the Solaris 8 companinon CD
KDE 3.0 is on the Solaris 9 companion CD
KDE 3.1 or KDE3.1.1 has not yet been included in a Solaris
There is a New Solaris 9 04/03 Mediakit beeing released this month.
Maybe a SUN employe could tell which KDE version will be included
on it ?
