I am putting together a render farm to learn about parallelization, clustering, rendering, etc. reasons and stuff.
I have about 110 computers all with legal windows xp licenses, but half of them are single core machines.
I will eventually move to Linux, probably Lubuntu, as soon as i become more familiar with it.
I cannot find the hardware requirements for past versions on the blender website, and whatever google turns up is largely unconfirmed.
i have another 100 or so computers that run less than 1ghz, but I don’t want to get into those right now, as they have operating systems ranging from windows 95 to windows 2000.
I would rather not mix os versions and types right out of the gate.
I found plenty of posts on different forums with these specs:
CPU: 300 MHz
RAM: 128 MB
Display: 1024 x 768 16-color
Open GL graphics card with 16 MB RAM
1 GHZ Single Core CPU
512 MB RAM
1024 x 768 px Display with 16 bit color
3 Button Mouse
OpenGL Graphics Card with 64 MB RAM
But there are usually no confirmed version numbers associated with them.
If anyone knows where I can find a list of version numbers with their corresponding hardware requirements, I would be most grateful.
