KolibriOS is VERY light on system requirements, using as little as 1MB of disk space and 8MB RAM to run. In terms of processing power, Intel's original Pentium (P5 microarchitecture) or compatible processor is sufficient to fully enjoy KolibriOS.

Here is a list of supported devices for KolibriOS.


Name Devices Notes
drm/radeon Radeon graphics cards (same as supported by Linux) Based on Linux "radeon" kernel driver
drm/i915 Intel graphics cards (same as supported by Linux) Based on Linux "i915" kernel driver
VESA (VBE) VESA 1.2, 2.0 and 3.0 VESA driver is built into the KolibriOS kernel.
