Voyage on 256M CF?

Dennis Wallberg
Hi,


Im trying to get a new life for my old Alix 2d but I only have a bunch of 256M CF cards. I've been trying to install Voyage 11.0 via PXE boot but is seems 256M CF is too small now a days? If yes is there any way around this or what is the smallest CF card supprted?

I have a old Voyage installation running on a 256M so at least it was possible a "few" years back :-)

I choose the automated install (Option 3) from Voyage Live CD pxe boot. Here is the output during boot/install process:
