Is Redhat the best version support wise?
I just got a rather new laptop (HP Pavilion ze4805) ... is redhat 9 the best version for me to try and have my hardware supported? I want to make sure that all of my hardware is supported before I install it ...
welcome to LQ!!!
your hardware might be supported by red hat 9, but red hat 9 isn't supportd by red hat anymore... the fedora core project replaced red hat's free version...
fedora core has the latest features, and it might offer better support for your hardware...
also, consider using a non-red hat distro, such as slackware...
or a red hat-based distro such as suse or mandrake, which aren't as bleeding-edge as fedora...
ps: here's a couple links that you might find interesting... looks like the laptop works well with fedora and suse, at least...
blah .... i tried redhat 9 and i couldn't even install it because the keyboard on my laptop wouldn't work ... guess i'll try the fedora project now ...
Go for Mandrake 10.0 official.....Its the best distro which supports almost every hardware that I have used till now.....Moreover, its the most user friendly distro too....and also supports rpm files....
Dont believe me? try mandy, and u wont complain!
