What's the spec of the laptop? How long ago (what version) of SuSe did
you have working?
Current Ubuntu versions are pretty good at supporting a wide range of
hardware, but Ubuntu is getting a little bloated compared with older
distros, and is optimized for fairly modern hardware. Older distros are
less likely to support a bang up-to-date PC, but more likely to work on
older hardware as they will be leaner and won't expect the latest CPU,
The minimum requirements for Ubuntu here:
don't say that any particular CPU is required, but I know that many
current distros are built for at least a '686 (Pentium Pro or later)
CPU and won't run on an original Pentium or earlier CPU.
So, what is this old laptop you have?
