    Question can older versions of PTS live CD be downloaded?

    I wish to try the Phoronix Test Suite live CD on a bunch of PCs
    with both Windoze and Linux. The system requirements says:
    - Intel / AMD x86_64 CPU
    - 2GB+ of RAM Recommended
    So I would like an older version that also supports i386 relics.
    Are there older versions tucked away on third-party repositories?

    Are you talking about the Phoronix Test Suite or the PTS Desktop Linux LiveDVD? The Phoronix Test Suite will run on any architecture on almost any platform. The Live Linux environment has been and is only x86_64.

    I was referring to PTS Desktop Linux LiveDVD.
    I know of only one benchmark live CD that runs on older CPU with
    little RAM: Inquisitor. However I consider it to be unacceptable,
    as one of the hard disk benchmarks writes to disk without a warning,
    as every other similar utility does.

    Then your best bet for old hardware is to just fire up a suitable Linux LiveCD/LiveDVD distribution and then run the Phoronix Test Suite on that.
