Hi, I've been using *nix on/off for 6 years or so, and was wondering what the best distro as far as hardware support goes "out of the box" for the XPS2? I know I'll most likely have to config some stuff, but some distros are easier than others at this, so I'd like something tested and working. So far on this machine I've tried Ubuntu and Gentoo. I could NOT get Ubuntu to work at all, and Gentoo I got working easily as I have used it previously, but I couldn't get my Audigy 2ZS to work at all with it [and also I got sick of Gentoo due to me using it alot previously]. So does anyone have any other suggestions? I'll probably end up sticking to Gentoo if anything because I'm so used to portage, but I like APT as well, and would welcome an Ubuntu install if someone has any steps to make it work with ALL my hardware [well, maybe not my USB TV tuner, but basically everything else]. Thanks.
