    Latop w/ Slackware


    A few weeks ago I posted a question about how Slackware 10 would work on a laptop. I can now give you the exact spec (which should help!):

    AMD64 Mobile Athlon 3400+;
    1 Gb DDR RAM
    WXGA monitor capable of 1280x800
    ATi Radeon Mobility 9600/9700 Series
    80 Gb HDD(Fujitsu)
    Built in wireless(802.11b) and infrared
    Built in 56k modem(Smartlink)
    DVD RW
    USB 2.0 and Firewire
    Card reader
    Touchpad

    Should work, or am I wrong?

    Only thing I am a bit concerned about is the card reader (smart card reader, correct?) and the modem. If it is a winmodem, it might be a bit hard to get it to work.

    Otherwise, it looks good.

    I think it would work well with that config...my slack10 laptop is as follows:

    PII 333
    128mb pc100 ram
    10Gb Dell
    Xircom dual ethernet/modem card
    1 usb port
    external ide cdrom/floppy
    touchpad...

    After some playing around it really flies...just have to figure out how to configure the sound
