Re: Changing PDF viewer by default


Regarding to hardware, my suggestions to make the system usable:

CPU: above 600 MHz should be enough most of the time
RAM: 512 mb is suggested, and 256 is minimal requirement
Disk space: 2 GB at least (including swap)

These values are based on personal experience, not any accurate
measurement or benchmarks.
