NOKIA BOOKLET 3G
« on: February 26, 2015, 05:34:27 pm »
without HD only from USB-STICK!

Finaly I re-animate my NOKIA BOOKLET 3G!
Original this machine comes with WIN7 on the intern 1,8" hd which bricked a few years ago.
I tried a lot OS from windows to unix (even os-x) win 8 runs well but only on hd and I wont by a new 1,8" hd so LINUX on USB-STICK was the answer! I tried most of the "regular" distributions but they all have driver problems (GMA500 & GSM-Modem)

PEPPERMINT MADE IT!! VGA checked! GSM-MODEM checked!!! EVERYTHING checked!
and...
IT RUNS ONLY FROM USB-STICK!!!

GREAT WORK!

Welcome Herr_Vorragend, and congratulations!

I ran Peppermint 3 for quite a while from a USB Stick.  Now my wife and I own newer computers that came with Windows 7.  We removed Windows 7 off of both our computers and replaced Windows 7 with Peppermint.  We did so because we like Peppermint better -- and because this forum is so much fun! 

Welcome to Peppermint.  :)

Update 2019.

Peppermint 9 runs pretty smoothly on Nokia Booklet 3G.
Out of the box.
Installs flawlessly.
All HW works properly.
Plays video files @720p fairly.
Office and web browser pretty good.

I never even knew Nokia had made a netbook until this topic :)
