Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Being a very light-weight DE, how much RAM does EDE need?

A: This actually varies greatly from system to system. But it is very much possible to run EDE on top of an average Linux distribution with less than 96 MB of RAM! Starting up X11 and EDE would increase RAM usage of an average system by less than 20 MB.

Q: Is PekWM the only WM that EDE can use?

A: No it's just the default one. In theory you could use any other window manager together with EDE - however most combinations suffer of some more or less serious issues.
