Bedrock Linux itself is relatively minimal and will run on very limited hardware.
stratum software Bedrock Linux will use will most likely require
significantly higher system requirements. See the documentation for the
stratum distributions you wish to use.
Nyla has been tested on (32-bit) x86 and (64-bit) x86-64 systems. In theory it should be possible to set it up on any architecture musl-libc supports.
Prior releases have been show to run smoothly on both a 1.6GHz Intel Atom and
800MHz Intel Celeron-M (ie, two different ASUS Eee PCs). Presumably
significantly slower CPUs will also suffice. Remember, though, some
software will likely have higher requirements to run adequately.
Prior releases have been shown to run without trouble on 512MB of RAM with huge
amounts of room to spare. Much smaller amounts of RAM would likely work fine
for the core Bedrock Linux software, but higher amounts will likely be expected
stratum software you may choose to run. Some additional RAM will be
required due to the fact that there will be multiple copies of some libraries
(such as the main libc libraries) and thus Bedrock Linux may not be suitable
for embedded-style systems.
Depending on what you choose to compile into the Linux Kernel and Busybox,
Bedrock Linux should fit snuggly within only a handful of megabytes of disk
space (although a fully-loaded Linux Kernel can take tens if not hundreds of
megabytes). However, Bedrock Linux is of limited use without any
strata can take quite a bit of space. See the disk space
requirements for the
stratum Linux distributions you are interested in. As
a rule of thumb, a gigabyte of disk space should be set aside for each
stratum distribution, with more preferred.
