Re: [PLUG] Question on stable LINUX for Aspire one

Ok, you probably just need manually need re-install the boot sectors and attempt the release upgrade again.

There is info on how to do that but since you don't care about whats on the system you might as well get the Lubuntu 14.04 LTS iso and do a clean install.

You may want to check out a couple of distributions via their Live CDs to see what interests you now.

It went through its paces for quite a while and then it froze and rebooted. When it rebooted it could not find a filesystem and dropped into maintenance mode. So I figured it was best to start over with a clean install.

Well the update went south and I now have to reload the OS. No problem as it was really only used a device for the Living room (prior to the iPad and Tablet world). I am looking for the recommendations as tothe most stable version, or best suited, for that device.

I bought this unit used with Ubuntu installed but always had an issue with the unit going to sleep (freezing) for a few seconds on a regular basis which lead me to believe some driver was not fully compatible.
