I have been told that linux on laptops is a bad idea. I have an e machine 5310 that is running windows xp home and I hate windows( I know it took a while to get there but I'm there) I have a few distros( suse9.3 & 10, mandrake 10, debian something, slackware 10.2, and red hat 9) What is the best for laptops and will I have issues with running say suse 10 on said laptop. I'm not sure what info you need to answer the query but if requested I will respond
Where can I get some simplified info on recompiling the kernel. Also do you think that running slackware would be better or should I stick with my SuSE distro? BTW thanks for the replies and keep um coming if you can it is a great help
OK I decided to run with SuSE 9.3 pro on my laptop after a few days of nothing working. Now I have only these probs
My Wireless card is not working( which I think I have figured out)
I want to play my DVD movies and I am trying it in Kaffine it starts and says you don't have permissions etc.
I think it is because of the dvd not the Kaffine
I am trying to find powerdvd for linux or a similar app. any thoughts?
