    [SOLVED] distro selection


    i'm looking for a distro that has the linux 2.6.27 kernel or better. i've looked around online but haven't found any real answers to which distros currently have these particular kernels. my only other option was to go one by one and dig until i found them. i am using a dell inspiron 1521 with broadcom wireless card and amd turion 64x2. the wireless card is the reason i seek 2.6.27 or newer. i'm still pretty new to linux but am willing to learn a bit more complex distro if needed. i'm currently using Ubuntu 8.10 and was previously using LinuxMint 6. any direction or suggestion anyone can give me is greatly appreciated.

    thanky you in advance!

    DistroWatch has a breakdown of kernel versions as well as several other popular pieces of software, with historical listings for most distributions. I would look there first.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Check the distro listing at DistroWatch.com because their list tells what kernel each release of each distribution uses by default.

    The table is part of the individual distribution pages. You can see them by clicking on the name of the distro on the table on the right hand side of the front page, or searching for a particular distribution.
