    Default install on a copaq laptop

    Any one installed open suse or any other linux on a compaq presario cq60-305ea? Any problems or issues?

    In particular are there any problems with it being an AMD (Sempron) rather than an Intel?

    Having a different CPU typically does not cause problems, unless it is the support chipset that is on the motherboard.

    Please note our stickie provides links to various sites with reviews of thousands of laptops with Linux: WELCOME to LAPTOP thead area - openSUSE Forums

    For example, those Links will point out these articles if you follow them thru:
    I recommend you download an openSUSE-11.1 and 11.2 liveCD (of your choice) and try and boot to those liveCDs to get a rough assessment as to how easy or difficult an install will be. Note that after such a check, when it comes to install, a DVD install will be faster than a CD install.

    Thanks, I forgot to say that I had already been through all the stickies.
