View Full Version : [xubuntu] Installing Xubuntu on a Compaq Notebook 100

June 15th, 2008, 12:22 AM
Having issues on a 475Mhz, 152MB, Notebook 100. I relized I don't meet the install requirements, but I would like to know what distro I should install on it? I was also having issues installing flubuntu, but I didn't try more than once before moving on.

Any recommendations?

Try Xubuntu Alternate CD:
If not; DSL or Puppy.

Also, I've read about a new distro which is ubuntu based which, IIRC, is named ubuntu-lite. You might google for it and see what it's all about.

Or do a minimal installation:

I'm installing the alternate as we speak, and it seems to be zipping right through it.

Although I got an error about a hub 2? or something like that. But it seems to be installing fine.
