Unfortunately, Gnome3 which came out in Fedora 15 does not work too well with the graphics chip, since it doesn't have the support for the (useless to me) 3D eye-candy that Gnome3 uses. This means for the time being I'm locked at Fedora 14, until I reinstall a different distro (or otherwise deal with the incompatibility).One consequence is I'm locked into version 0.22 until I deal with the Arduino incompatiblities with rxdx and avrdude.
I haven't put it on my main machine yet, but Linux Mint LXDE runs nicely on my old decrepit laptop. IIRC it uses Fluxbox as the WM. You'll still have Gnome libraries, but I think you can turn off the 3D crap, if it's still an issue. I'm at Mint v11, and 13 is already out. Just too lazy to upgrade, and I don't use my laptop much anyway.

Evidently, they bumped up the user UID/GID range, and I need to change my UID/GID on the user from 500 to 1000.
not to start one of those wars but LXDE is rubbish, use XFCE (which I assume you meant when you posted XFDE) every single annoyance in LXDE (and there are a big ole pile of them) is corrected in XFCE, and if your wanting a middle weight desktop (compared to ICEWM or something) its just one less pain in the assQuoteIIRC it uses Fluxbox as the WM. no is uses LXDE, hince the name ]
My latest purchase is a 20-foot shipping container.What has this to do with Arduino/electronics?Well I plan to fit half of it out as a workshop so when we aren't travelling I have somewhere decent to make stuff. At least I'll have a workbench now.______Rob
What did they ship it in, a 21-foot shipping container?
How about ordering some air, and asking for it to be shipped in a 20-foot shipping container?
