I have an older computer I'd like to set Tor up on, but I'm trying to figure out if its Intel Pentium 2 will support it. I have 2GB of RAM, XP SP3, adequate graphic/audio cards, etc. I' just like to know if an Intel Pentium 2 will run it, and if so, will I get any notable issues?
Currently there should be nothing preventing Tor from running on a Windows XP box with a Pentium 2 class CPU, and your system has more than sufficient RAM for most use cases (Quite a few people run Tor successfully on the Raspberry Pi).
- Windows XP is approaching End of Life, and it is unknown how long the Tor Project will continue to support Windows XP past that date (Using a operating system that is no longer getting security updates is suboptimal in general).
- The developers are in the process of incorporating a better optimized Curve25519 implementation that requires SSE2. Once this code is in official builds, you will need to compile your own copy of Tor (See #8897).
