Shalom,

Smart start, no longer has a guided installation mode for Linux where you boot off the smart start cd and then proceed with the Linux install.

Prior to doing the Linux install, you should still boot smart start, update bios/firmware and such and then boot the OS of your choice.

PSP normally takes between 1-6 months after an OS major update is released to fully support the OS.
