Linux Laptop Lamentations
I have an 5 yr old Uniwill n341C aka known as a Genicom Webboy and aka other names around the globe. I have acquired a 20 GB laptop drive from a dead Compaq, so decided to try Linux on the Laptop.
AMD Athlon XP 1700 processor
256 K RAM
DVD/CD Combo drive
I tried Kubuntu Live- it stalled too little memory for the ram disk.
Same Story with Suse 10.2
Knoppix did not load
Gentoo loaded but I don't want Gnome, I prefer KDE and it was not fully set up for Network.
So I start again with Suse 10.2 and do the text mode (shift + Enter at fail point). TWICE it gets to 99% and then said "db is missing from CD1"
I am downloading Xubuntu.... I will post what I find hopefully from the lappy.
