Question about LG Electronics 16x DVD and 48x CD-ROM Internal EIDERetail Box with Power DVD Software XP, Linux, OS/... (2290300530) DVD Drive
I am thinking to buy a small LG e200 or r200, but I want also install linux (Debian etc) on this machine.
Chipset and Graphiccards are RS600 und Radeon Xpress 1250 or Mobile Intel 965PM Express and Ati Mobile Radeon HD2400.
Please can anybody tell me, if this computer(s) are able to host linux?
Thanks a lot,
Best way to find out is to download a live CD. If you're planning on running Debian, using the Ubuntu Live CD should demonstrate whether current Debian works on your system.
It may not auto-configure all devices in Live CD - don't be surprised if you find that USB headset or WIFI card doesn't work on boot - but at least it will give you a clear idea of whether the system works or not on your machine.
Ubuntu's 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) is reported to boot on the e200 in Live CD mode; you need to use "safe" graphics mode to do the install (after which you can install the correct video drivers).
Enjoy your new OS!
