recommended Netbook distro for an HP mini 110-3130NR
I just purchased a netbook yesterday and obviously want to install linux on it as the OS as opposed to having windows 7.
I downloaded ubuntu netbook remix and tested by running it off the USB on my HP mini 110-3130NR and was dissapointed to see that the wireless card was not detected which sucks.
anyone have any recommendations for a NETBOOK SPECIFIC variant of linux for this type of netbook or one that works well with HP minis?
Ubuntu is as good a choice as any. :) A quick Google search shows me that your netbook has a Broadcom wireless card. These cards are very popular and should work in any Linux distro you choose; all you need to do is download and install the Broadcom STA driver. It is a quick (5 minutes) and painless procedure, but you'll need to temporarily plug your netbook into a wired (ethernet) internet connection.
Instructions for Ubuntu here:
(be sure to follow instructions for "b43/STA hybrid" and not "b43.")
