Linux distro on Asus A8Jc and HP DV2000?


I have 2 laptops: asus a8jc with intel t2300 duo and an HP DV2000 with Turon 64 x2. Ubuntu Dapper works fine on Asus, but it has problems with fc6, susi 10.1, ubuntu edgy. HP has problems with dapper!! The problems are mainly networking.
Anyone recommend a distro that will work on both? I'd like the same distro on both.

Gentoo hasn't given me any problems.

Atleast the ipw3945 needs linux drivers which can be downloaded from sourceforge before it starts to work. Not sure about rtl8168B.

Slackware installer nemonico will have support for ipw3945 and other wireless adapters in the near future.

Thank for the info. It seems strange that ipw3945 and rtl8168B work out the box with ubuntu dapper and not with edgy, nor any other that I can find. Even fc6 couldn't work it!! rtl worked with elive but not ipw3945. Ho humm, onward we go...

http://ipw3945.sourceforge.net/

There you can get drivers for the ipw3945 and instructions on how to install it. Also OpenBSD has support for ipw3945

I have a HP2000t. I installed Kubuntu 6.10 last night. Everything worked out of the box. Wireless, sound, and Mic. I tried several Live distros: Suse 10.1, Knoppix, Kubuntu. The only one that fully worked was Kubuntu 6.10 Edgy. Even the volume touch sliders work.

The only think that is difficult for me is that I have been using SuSe for so long that the transition to a different distro is going to be painful I think.

I've got a dv2000 and Ubuntu worked for me with it. Though I had sound and samba issues. FC6 and Elive had sound issues. Though I finally got Elive to play nice with WPA2 yesterday and can deal with no headphones. But the distro that really stood out and everything worked out of the box was Pardus. The only downside is the limited number of packages and not a clear wiki on how to build packages.
