Samsung N150 Plus Netbook - Fedora, Mandriva, Ubuntu Maverick and Jolicloud

Filed under
Linux

Rather than continue this sequence of posts with one per Linux distribution, which would end up being a lot of repetition, I've decided to wrap them all up in one bundle. There's good news and not so good news, and a peek at the latest from Ubuntu. But first, one small observation. A couple of days ago I realized what I like so much about this Samsung netbook. It makes practically no noise at all. If there is a fan in it, it is the quietest I have ever had. When I realized that, I thought the laptop must get pretty hot, so I started paying attention to that. It doesn't. If anything, it seems to be less warm, especially underneath, than any of my other netbooks or laptops. It's quite amazing.

Fedora 13 (Goddard): Loaded without any trouble, as usual, but I have gotten the Broadcom wireless adapter working yet. There are instructions on the Fedora Unity web page which should work, but I haven't gotten around to that yet. Otherwise Fedora looks very good on the N150.

    It's been five almost five months since the developers behind the Debian-based Devuan GNU/Linux operating system launched the second Beta version towards the first stable release of the OS, and they now announced the Release Candidate. The Devuan project continues its vision of providing a libre Debian fork without using the systemd init system, and the Release Candidate (RC) version brings the GNU/Linux distribution closer to a final release. The interesting fact is that this RC appears to be stable enough to be used for production work.
