I have a laptop with 20 GB of RAM, and would like to use it to create K34 plots.
- Is 20 GB of RAM enough to create K34 plots via madmax?
- Does Chia or madmax have to be fully installed on my laptop, when I need only the plotting part to work?
2a) If Chia or madmax does not have to be fully installed to do only plotting, then which executables will I need?
I realize that I could simply install the software and see if it works.
But I use my laptop as a music server. Other than installing JRiver’s Media Center on it, I have never installed anything else (I am overly cautious about installing anything on my PCs that is not absolutely necessary).
So I would rather know if it will work, before I go ahead with installing anything on it.
Lastly, do I really need to install anything on the laptop? Can I simply have the plotting executable on a flash drive, and kick off the plotting job from there? But if the plotting job needs libraries and other files, then I will do the installation, assuming someone confirms that 20 GB of RAM is sufficient for K34 plot creation.
My goal is to create K34 plots on my laptop, and install only that which is absolutely necessary for the plotting to function properly.
