The Project: Compaq Presario V2000
I got a new toy to play with: A Compaq Presario V2000 w/ AMD Mobile Sempron and ATI Radeon Xpress 2000M. It started out with 256mb of pc2700 RAM and I added an extra 512mb to bring it to a total of 768mb. The sound card appears to be an ATI (They made sound cards?!) IXP Rev 2 AC97. I know it has WLAN built in but I have yet to figure the make/model out.
Now here is the project/problem: What distro would work best with this hardware? I tried PCLOS07 (cause PCLOS09 won't download >_<) and got nothing but problems. I am running Kubuntu 8.10 right now and I am thoroughly unimpressed. KDE4 is nice, I just don't like how the user automatically gets root privileges. I also don't like Adept. Synaptic is so much easier to use.
Anyone have any suggestions on what distros would work best? Thanks for any suggestions and comments
