I have just received my Acer Aspire One 725. The Linpus Linux installed only boots into the command line for some reason. Therefore I decided to try a couple of the live distros from the latest Linux Format DVD to check the computer's performance under Linux, before I install anything on the internal drive (I am using an external DVD drive). Unfortunately I can't seem to either get the wireless card or the multi-gesture trackpad to work. The wireless card appears to be a Broadcom BCM43228. The trackpad appears to be manfactured by a company calle Elantech.
I would like to try both Fedora and Linux Mint on the DVD, but both experience the same problems with the wireless card and the trackpad.
I just tried Mageia and the wireless works, so they must have gotten something right that the other distros didn't.
