I have no idea .. we run on Debian 2.1, with:

- squid-2.1.2, compiled with async IO (threads)
- libc6_2.0.7u-7.1 (that's the 1998-08-28 snapshot)
- Linux 2.0.36 patched with filehandle.patch.linux.v8.04
- 128 MB RAM, 64 MB swap
- 2x 4.3 GB SCSI striped in RAID0 mode for the cache

.. and it's running just fine.
