Mepis 8.5 on a Compaq N160 Laptop

#1 Postby maxpro4u » Wed Jul 06, 2011 3:22 pm

I have been distro hopping for a year now. Mepis 8.5 is the only one so far that just worked. I have an older Compaq N-160 that has a 1.13 Ghz P3 processor and 512mb of ram. One of the biggest problems is scaling and none of the others worked "out of the box" like mepis did-it runs much cooler and no lock-ups like many of the others.
