DSL Linux. 1. Unable to detect wifi. 2. Mouse not working
I'm really new to Linux
Felt very stuck on the windows treadmill : Win 8 made me really run : I wanted to change to a light weight Linux
I have made a bootable flash drive ( using live Linux USB ) and it boots on DSL
I'm really overjoyed to see an entire OS being just 50 mb or so
It is just fantastic
However I face the following problems . I'd be greatful if someone could help
1. When I boot with The DSL flash drive, I am unable to connect to wifi / net. I am half dead there !!
2. When I boot .... I am unable to use the mouse . This itself is not a great problem but having a mouse would be a great help
3. I am unable to see libre office or similar and suppose I have to download those somewhere ? The xl like app in this distribution doesn't work
Any tips / pointers would be most appreciated

Your gear was made later than DSL kernel was Made.
Win 8 made me really run :
If me. I would dump Damn Small Linux off of the pendrive and try Tiny Core instead. The site I linked to has screen shots and how tos in their wiki that are current. Slitaz is another option that is a small download distro you could try also.
The more recent a kernel. The better hardware support out of the box will be had.I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.
