Hi everybody and thanks in advance!
I would like to install fedora in my laptop. The problem being that itīs 5 years old and I donīt know if itīll be able to manage it.
This are the characterstics:
Intel Pentium 2.2Ghz

You I install an older version Fedora? Would this make any difference?
Are there any other distros that might be more suitable for my laptop capabilities?
Thank you very much!

Help: A suitable dist for an old laptop
location: linux.com - date: April 25, 2012
I've got an IBM T40 laptop running an intel celeron M cpu at 1.2 GHz and 1024 MB RAM. I'm currently running Ubuntu 11.10 on it but it's so slow.
I'm looking for another dist to run on it, I'm not entirely new to Linux but I'm not an average user either.
The laptop is used mainly for school work, writing reports, browsing the internet and the occasional YouTube video.
Does anyone have a dist, preferably lighter than Ubuntu 11.10, you'd recommend?
[SOLVED] Debian vs Arch linux for my needs on a laptop advice requested
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 2012
Hello LQ users, I just have a couple of questions.
I recently got a new laptop, and I'm finally intent on running GNU/Linux properly on it, (I've mainly used virtual machines in the past).
My friend recommended Arch Linux to me, and I say that it's intriguing, yet I only have one main issue with it: pacman.
I'm just used to apt-get, and to me, it is much more user friendly, as well as more powerful (in terms of number of commands/options, from a first glance anyway).
So I've had experience with Fedora, Ubuntu and Kubuntu (as well as Xubuntu). I've decided that most likely I'll try GNOME 3, thus my reasoning for instead of Arch, maybe trying a more Debian-based derivative. So now I'm thinking, I don't need a Debian based derivative, maybe I should just try Debian itself!
I'm mainly wondering which one to pick, Debian or Arch. I'm fine with suggestions, but I'd rather distros that are at least fairly well known, and not the really obscure ones.
I want to be able to try
Erase Windows XP from an old laptop and load Ubuntu linux.

Xubuntu or Ubuntu is best for very old computer??
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 8, 2011
Which is the best choice for an old system with low memory and slow chip. But it must be easy to use for very non tech users. Would Xubuntu be the best choice or something else?
I was afraid that Ubuntu might be too much for the chip set to handle but I am also afraid that Xubuntu might not be easy enough to use for non techs.
Performance on old laptop with Windows XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 12, 2012
Hi all, first time posting here and new to linux.
My situation: I saved an old Dell Latitude C640 laptop from the garbage and upgraded the RAM to 1Gb and stuck an IDE SSD drive in it (maybe a waste of an SSD but it's faster now) and installed XP first and then Xubuntu alongside it.
I've noticed that watching videos in XP works perfectly, but I get really slow and choppy video in Xubuntu. I saved the old laptop to connect to an old CRT TV to watch movies (my new laptop only supports a digital signal) and I was wondering why Xubuntu can't handle video files. I use VLC Player on both OSs.
Interestingly, Windows XP refuses to recognize that my laptop is connected to a CRT via s-video link (even with updated graphics drivers) but Xubuntu auto-detected everything on install. So I can watch videos great in XP but can't send to the TV. I can't watch videos at all on Xubuntu, but it detects my TV without problem.
Here are the system specs:
Dell Latitude C640
Pentium 4 2GHZ Process

Low battery life and very hot Laptop with Ubuntu 10.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 12, 2011
I have a Lenovo G555 Notebook:
AMD Athlon II Dual Core M320 2.2 GHz 3072 MB 320 GB
I have been using this with Ubuntu 10.10, but the problem is that the battery life time is VERY lower than with Windows 7, and also, the Laptop Itself gets very very hot!
Could you recommend me a more "laptop" friendly Distribution ?
I read that OpenSUSE is the best for this, but those topics where from 2008, so, things should be changed.
Thanks in advance!
