Minimum CPU?

Postby kbeaucha » Wed Jun 14, 2006 5:11 pm

I am installing 6.3.0 and SP2 on a small rackmount system.

I noticed that the install guide lists the minimum system requirements. Most
seem pretty straightforward, but the minimum CPU requirement of a 2GHz
Pentium 4 seems pretty high.

I'm doing an end-user evaluation of running an application originally
written for 6.2.1 on 6.3.0. The system runs semi-embedded, without the IDE
or even Photon.

I had hoped to run this on some fanless x86 hardware that tops out at 1GHz.

I wondering how strict that 2GHz minimum is, or where it applies.

Thanks

That's probably a recommendation for folks doing development with the IDE.

I've got a box on my desk, Pentium III, 450MHz, 256MB of RAM running QNX
6.4.2, with Photon, and the IDE. It's not screamingly fast for IDE
stuff, but it's quite snappy for everything else.

Sadly, I couldn't find hardware requirements for the x86 Runtime Kit on
our website; perhaps if you contact your sales rep they can give you a
better idea about the actual minimum requirements for a non-development
system.

Here are the requirements from the x86 Runtime Kit:

Memory Disk space Processor
------ ---------- ---------
Core installation 16MB 50 MB 486
(minimum)

Full installation 64 MB 300 MB 486
(minimum)

Full installation 256 MB 1 GB Pentium III
(recommended)

Thanks for getting back to me on that.

I've got the application we need to host up and running and it seems to be
fine on a 1GHz iBase MB740, but it's still good to know.

Thanks again.
