Please help, so that ConnochaetOS can be maintained

The building machine is an aged AMD Athlon II X2 250. This machine hosts the slack-n-free 64 host system, ConnochaetOS 14.2 (kvm virtual machine) and both 32 and 64 bit 14.1 systems as LXC containers.

Suffice it to say that building packages for 4 different repos is very slow on this machine. I plan to buy new components, at least a 4 core CPU, if possible six-core, and more RAM. I estimate the costs at approx. 250 €.

Therefore I call for donations, which I haven't done in a very long time. The goal is to collect at least 250 €. Every cent will be invested in Hardware for building ConnochaetOS.

Update

It has been 4 months since the first call for donations and all we got is 16 €. Suffice it to say that this is not what I have expected. This donation campaign will run until the end of this year. If the goal of collecting 250 € is not achieved the future of ConnochaetOS is in stake.

0€250€

Everyone who donates 10 € or more will be mentioned on the web site and in the release notes (if requested).

Generous donaters so far:

  • Anthony Noakes - 15 €

PS: The new CPU will be definetly one of the AMD 15h family, which means an AMD FX. Read here why.
