I need help keeping Xandros 4.1 up to date.
Xandros isn't keeping its repostorie Apps. updated. I tried Ubuntu 9.04 and it was good with only a minor change, (wireless was slow). Got a workround from Ubuntu forum. Login as root I was able to fix it, I updated to Ubuntu 10. Wireless was slow again. I tried logging on as root. Ubuntu 10. has lockout root and sudo won't let me add (iwconfig wlan rate 54M) to a boot up program to fix it. I went back to 9.04 now it wouldn't let me sign in as root. I next tried Debian Lenny. The screen res. was 1600 x 900? And for Dabian Lenny the screen res. is set automatically and can't be set manually, so I could not finish the install. So I'm back to Xandros 4.1 needing help to keep it up to date. The GEEkCONNECTION has helped some. Any help ideas? Thanks
Xandros is based on Debian Etch which is the old stable release.
My two cents, post your system's specs then ask for help on installing Debian.
I am willing to try installing Dabain again if there is a chance of success, and can get a lot of help.
Machine specs are: i686 laptop (with no brand name)
Via Technologies Vido Card S3 Unichrome Pro VGA Adapter, driver via
Screen size 1024 x 758
Mobile AMD 32 bit Semprom Processer 2800+
Wireless Ralink R 2500 802.11g Cardbus/mini-PCI(rev).
My first try @ installing Dabain Lenny stalled after loading the installation CD and booting up to a huge screen size and no way to set it a useable size. Any help getting by this roadblock will be appreciated.
