philips freevents & suse
dear all,

I have a philips freevents laptop with intel core 2 duo processor. I need linux for work and I knew from the web that suse 10.3 works very fine with my laptop. At the moment I have a modified version of ubuntu but it does not work properly.

All the other distro do not work.

I have searched for suse10.3 but I have seen that there is just 11 11.1 and 11.2 on opensuse distribution. Thus I have downloaded the two but the installation freezes when the system try to see the ethrnert card, that is a realtek RTL -8139/8139CI8139C+. In particular, they froze when they try to install the 8139too driver for the realtek. I have tried all the options that the install help suggests but the result does not change.

what you suggest? Have I to search for the old 10.3 anyway?

For my intel dual core processor, should I install suse versions as i386 or i586 or x32??

thank you very much

Puppy will work on almost any box. Sticking with your original questions, 10.3 is "sort of" available; just change 11.? to 10.3 at the prompts and depending on how Novell feels that day, you'll find it. I'd go with the 586 flavor.
