What distro to install on HP/Compaq nc6120?
I have an HP/Compaq nc6120 laptop with the following spec:
Pentium M 740 CPU (1.73 GHz)
Intel 915GM Chipset
Intel GMA900 Video
Broadcom 4318 wifi
Broadcom NetXtreme 10/100/1000 ethernet
60GB IDE HDD
The only distro I've had any degree of success with has been JaS's 10.4.8, which worked straight out of the box, with the exception of the LAN stuff. No matter what I've tried, I could not get either the wifi nor the ethernet adapters to be recognised.
I then tried Leopard...
iDeneb 10.5.5 - no
Kalyway 10.5.2 - no
JaS 10.5.4 - couldn't get into the installer program!
iPC 10.5.6 - almost!
I found that the iPC version gave me the most likely choices to match the hardware of my lappie, but after countless attempts with varying combinations, including the so-called "paperclip" or "staple" trick I am about to admit defeat and stick my tried n tested Kubuntu 8.10 in it and give it up.
If anyone can raise my spirits and give me some renewed hope of getting OSX86 to work, please please get in touch!!!
