    Seems like you want a LTS equivalent distro. If you don't think she would like Ubuntu 12.04 then I would look at Debian stable or a RHEL clone like CentOS, Scientific, PUIAS, etc. That way once you...
  3. Re: Thinking of buying a System 76 Laptop, Wondering If I will be able to install Min

    Linux runs on a ton of different hardware and since System 76 is a company that sells Linux products you will be able to run any Linux distro on it.

    Re: Has anyone heard of Zenwalk and Dreamlinux?

    Netpkg is not a great tool in my opinion. I would definitely checkout Salix and Vector both of which use slapt-get and G-Slapt.

    Re: OpenSUSE won't install updates

    Using zypper should not be thought as obscure commands for someone who has chosen to use opensuse anymore than apt is obscure for someone using a debian-based system.

    I would stay away from DSL, it is dead as can be so you won't get any further security updates.

    Vector Linux light edition is a good choice for that hardware.

    Re: Which Slackware based distro to download

    Personally I would skip the derivatives and just try Slackware. If you don't want to do that then SalixOS, Vector, Absolute, and Zenwalk are all good.
