  • Linux Lite: 4.2 64bit
I have used Linux Lite a few years ago, and it was a very nice OS.  One problem I had with it had to do with its grub config, Had multi OS boot and the grub insisted on adding everything in.  Ended up with a page or two of kernels.  Hope they fixed it by now.  Question, I have an old Toshiba A20 satelite laptop with a cyberblade trident graphics.  Ubuntu favors only work up to 12.04 with it, nothing after 12.04 seems to work.

Probably should create a new post for best visibility/response.. But will try to answer...
If its OLD and 32-bit is your only option.. LL 3.x or 2.x will be the options.. LL 4.x is 64-bit only...
The Hardware Database is a good place to look for similar hardware which there are a few.. https://www.linuxliteos.com/hardware_results.php?q=trident#search_results

Another option would be to create a LiveUSB and test on your system...
LL 4.6 UEFI 64 bit ASUS E402W - AMD E2 (Quad) 1.5Ghz  - 4GB - AMD Mullins Radeon R2
LL 4.6 64 bit HP 6005- AMD Phenom II X2 - 8GB - AMD/ATI RS880 (HD4200)
LL 4.4 UEFI 64 bit Test UEFI Kangaroo (Mobile Desktop) - Atom X5-Z8500 1.44Ghz - 2GB - Intel HD Graphics
LL 3.8 32 bit Dell Inspiron Mini - Atom N270 1.6Ghz - 1GB - Intel Mobile 945GSE Express
RETIRED LL 2.8 64 bit Dell Optiplex 160 (Thin) - Atom 230 1.6Ghz - 4GB-SiS 771/671 PCIE VGA
