which distro will work with dell inspiron e1505?
Totally new to this stuff... Installed Ubuntu 8.10 on Inspiron e1505 and wireless doesn't work. Followed several "how-to" posts, but it's over my head and I'm getting nowhere. Has anyone successfully installed a Linux distro that works with this machine without too much tweaking? It has a Dell wireless 1390 WLAN mini-card - also Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller. I came across a post which looked like Ubuntu 6.1 might work, so in the meantime I'll give that a shot. Any help is appreciated. Thanks - Bill
