Low memory, look at puppee...

Others to check out:

Quirky...

The reason, I have used these in the past is when there is the rare issue that Ubuntu or another derivative fails to resolve...
I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.
I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up.
I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...
