[LNX] Distro for my Wireless & Graphics OOTB?
Posted 20 February 2009 - 12:18 AM
The only one that recognized my wireless OOTB was OpenSUSE.
Thats what I dual booted on my Vista laptop. I was never able to sort out the choppy video playback. Seems there are no good Linux drivers for an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600. In fact thats what messed up my OpenSUSE install. Me mucking about & trying to install some other drivers. Finally just wiped it & am licking my wounds.
So does anybody know of a distro with a LiveCD that works well OOTB with my Intel® Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN & has good drivers (no choppy playback) for my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600?

For your ATI card you need to install the property drivers for it. Then you can get good playback.

You can use lspci from livecd. That is not a problem.

No having to look for stupid codecs in either of these. Unrar utility actually comes with these 2 also!!
DO NOT use that stupid bloatware/fanboy Ubuntu!!
