fuduntu 14.8

Post by LarryP »

Interesting distro here http://www.linuxtoday.com/infrastructur ... 0139NWSWRL I just downloaded nd booted into the live dvd' quick boot from livedvd, and I think it it the first one I tried that recognised my broadcom wireless chip and connected from the dvd. I'll be playing with it for awhile but it feels good. EDIT: GRRRRR halfway throught the install it hung up and froze my laptop just at the point it asks how to partition your drive. Good thing is it didn't bork the system just had to hard shut-down.I'm not going to let the fedoro installer whip me though hell it seems like a pretty good one just doesnt agree with something on my lappy.

Loaded this on my Acer Aspire One D250 netbook, all very well so far, everything seems to work, and it handles my wireless broadband usb modem fine also. Will see how it lasts. :)
If you accept - and I do - that freedom of speech is important, then you are going to have to defend the indefensible. That means you are going to be defending the right of people to read, or to write, or to say, what you don't say or like or want said.
