Need advice on FASTEST distro for video editing?
I'm relatively new to Linux, and have Mandrake 8.1 installed right now. It doesn't seem all that fast, and I would like some input on which distro I should use to edit video and compose / mix music on? Should I go wtih Mandrake 8.2 or something else? Maybe Debian or Redhat, etc.?
I'm running a PIII-600 w/ 384MB Ram, 60GB 7200RPM HDD, ATI Radeon 7500 w/ 64MB DDR, ATI Tv card, SB Audigy.
What I'm trying to do is capture from old VHS and convert file to DivX, then burn to CD-R.
Also, anyone have any programs to recommend for this?
Thanks for any info.
