What are Void Linux's memory and processor demands? I'm assembling a 
"gateway" for Amateur Packet Radio use, and I need a lightweight version 
which is nonetheless capable of running AX.25. I have a Dell PC that has 
400 MB of RAM and a 2GHz processor, which should be adequate for a 
router, but I need to know how much processor load and RAM I can shed 
with this version.
