Anyone successfully install opensuse on a netbook? Asus 1025c

Hi, anyone running opensuse (KDE) on asus 1025c? the windows 7 starter pre-installed on it is so laggy I can puck clean it up and it’ll still loading

Create a USB KDE Live stick, boot from it into the Live environment. If all works nicely, install. But, don’t expect too much, these machines simply don’t have the hardware to run KDE in all it’s glory. But it works, and my guess is that the speed improvements in 12.2 will make things better than they were.

I have a different netbook - an HP mini-110 with a 1.67 GHz Atom CPU and 1 GB of
RAM. With Windows 7, it is pretty sluggish.

I got this machine 2nd hand from Red Hat with a dual-boot setup of Win 7 and
Fedora (naturally). I don’t care for Gnome and replaced Fedora with openSUSE
11.4 with KDE. That also is a bit slow on this machine; however, LXDE provides
acceptable performance. It has since been upgraded to 12.1 and last week to
12.2. All is still good. I do not use the machine a lot as the small screen is a
definite handicap, but when I need something that is portable, it is useful. I
also use it for driver testing, which is the reason I acquired it.

Not the same, but check my spec to yours

KDE runs OK

I found a distro fuduntu maybe it can gives me better battery life?

Running 12.2 32-bit Gnome on a 1015PN, works great in Intel only mode and Nvidia only mode and Bumblebee 3 seems to run without problems i Optimus mode, although I haven’t tested Bumblebee much, just installed it!
