Acer aspire 5000 (Linux Not working right)
#1
Hey, i have an acer aspire 5000 laptop who i want to run Linux on. It currently runs windows XP. And XP is the only os i have found to work on it. I have tried multiple different distros but none of them seem to work. The distros just don't install and the driver support is crap. Any help?

Hey klokkefriken
By the looks of it the issues is that the GPU (SiS Mirage 2) does not support Linux at this point. It is a really old and obscure GPU so it should come as no surprise. There are some drivers available, but I doubt they would work as people were struggling with as far back as 2012.
