[quote=“jwar”]Yeah, Fedora Core is too much this laptop. So, I reinstalled Mandrake only to install Morphix over it a few hours later.
Sadly, I don’t think I like Morphix. I can’t mount my floppy drive, CD ROM and USB. I can’t even access the Morphix site!
So, I’d like to install Knoppix. I’ve already tried a few times, but halfway into loading everything at the KDE splash screen, I get a black screen of death. Then I can’t see anything.
I’m having a difficult time finding out why, too…[/quote]
How much memory does your laptop have? KDE insists on 128MB of RAM to run properly. It can run in less (I have it running on 64MB) if you have a swap partition. Better yet is to not use KDE if you’re memory-constrained - I’d suggest running IceWM instead. In fact, I run it on my desktop (I just love the speed).
I generally recommend Kanotix over Knoppix. I’ve found it does a better job of hardware detection. And only Kanotix would work with my Centrino wireless.
Having said that, I’m very interested in Kubuntu, which was just released yesterday. Check it out.
