KANOTIX Great on dell Laptops, everything works!
- I'm running Kanotix on 3 Dell Latitudes (L400, C600, CPt). It's
without a doubt the best Linux distro I've tried. The hardware
detection and auto-config is better than even Knoppix, and HDD
installation is flawless.
I want to spread the word to other Dell Laptop owners (and people with
a dislike for M$). "Kano", the creator of Kanotix takes Paypal
donations. If you find his work as usefull as I did please kick him a
few bucks so he can afford to keep developing.
A couple fixes/tweaks/tips:
Older Dells need to be started NO-DMA mode (boot menu)
To fix the ugly fonts I downloaded the msttfonts and changed most of
the system fonts to ariel.
apt-get install msttfonts
To fix DCHP on a Netgear WG511t WiFi card:
apt-get install netcardconfig-kanotix
