Post My acer one is running better than new


Well first of all I would like to thank those, which assisted me.
I have an Aspire One 110-1722, which came with http://www.linpus.com/
Operating system restore disk did not work much like their site.

I latter went to http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ and on my XP computer chose
Linux mint http://linuxmint.com/ though I really loved it Linux mint was not able to get me on WIFI perhaps because the following was not supported

03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
04:00.0 System peripheral: JMicron Technologies, Inc. SD/MMC Host Controller

But the Ethernet was.

I latter went back to http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
And chose http://fedoraproject.org/

after this fedora install I recomend for utility such as playing web content and various media files http://dnmouse.org/autoten.html
the programs listed as plugins and such well lets just say for my self I don't need a windows computer

Honestly if I had a choice between .rpm or .deb I’m going for the .deb so if linux mint finds a way to get the above mentioned hardware to work I’ll be back to them but Fedora has been thus far better than I had heard tell I was tempted to try http://www.debian.org/
But going on the words (though somewhat condescending) while in a forum in regards to Mint verses Fedora in regards to WIFI connectivity I opted for less experimentation. So now I am online and so far doing fine.
For fellow new bees to linux like myself this site was helpful in directing me around http://www.linuxquestions.org/

As the one bellow can be of great benefit for self help through reading:

Re-installing Linpus Lite & installing apps

I had a lot of problems with the DVD and could not generate a bootable USB stick on my system - kept getting linpus error 39

I followed a few links on how to generate a boot USB but nothing seemed to work for me.

I finally managed to generate the bootable USB by putting my dvd drive into my wife's trusty old 1700MHz AMD Thunderbird and it generated just fine. I later did the same to create a permanent boot 2GB SD card using an old 900 MHz AMD system.

I don't know whether the problem is down to Intel processors or systems with SATA hard drives - maybe the USB controller gets confused. -- [Techies please dispell this myth or confirm my suspicions]

To install new software follow the tip to add the right mouse button admin menu then use add/remove software. Use the search option and just add one app at a time. I screwed the first time I tried by trying to use the check boxes and removing things I thought I didn't need.

It'll all be better than windows, it just takes practice. (I hope)

Fox
