Re: [trinity-devel] Trinity on older hardware

There are only a few things to make an old system run faster: 

- put in all the ram you can salvage from old equipment
- disable swap.
- replace the harddrive with some kind of solid state disk, e.g. cf-card + 
ide-adapter (I have two of these things in my "box of little things I 
probably will never use" - just drop a line if you need one)
