What distro are you testing/playing with? - GNU/Linux

I also love small and lightweight distros.

Right now I am trying to see how small and lightweight I can make Opensuse. Right now I have around 400 packages installed and the system idles at 80 meg of ram with cups running in the background with openbox as my wm. cups uses about 6 meg of ram, so when I do not need to print anything it idles at around 75 meg of ram. But with alsa audio, ram usage goes through the roof, I start to idle at about 100 meg of ram.

so if we do 100 - 80 we get 20, that means alsa uses 20 meg! of ram.

I do not think I can get down to tinycore levels of smallness but I hope to get close.
