Tested Good / Tested Bad hardware
« on: November 23, 2007, 04:55:50 am »
If the mods dont appreciate this thread, feel free to delete it. But frankly hardware changes quickly and the wiki is a bit lacking in terms of tested and used hardware. If this proves usefull maybe we can get it pinned to cut down on the number of "im new and buying stuff" questions. To keep it simple it would probably make sense to keep the posts in a semi standard format, i have posted an example below which i think is easy to read quickly.

Code: [Select]
===== Tested [b]GOOD[/b]/[b]BAD[/b] =====
[b]Hardware Category:[/b]
[b]Manufacturer:[/b]
[b]Model:[/b]

[b]Brief description of specs:[/b]

[b]Notes on setup process:[/b]


example:
===== Tested BAD =====
Hardware Category:Preconfigured Workstation
Manufacturer:Dell
Model:Precision 370 workstation

Brief description of specs: P4 workstation with SATA onboard RAID

Notes on setup process: Durring setup process i encountered several issues which at this point leads me to say not supported. First on boot the tutorial videos can not play. Second when you get past the video config if you select anything other than "No Audio" the set up wizard starts over again. Still working on this set up to try to narrow down the problem hardware in this preconfigured system

Agreed! Please just do a little research - but no one wants to answer the same question again and again. ;-)

I guess the previous thread like this has sunk to the bottom again after going completely offtopic like the others.

Here is how to share your experience with your hardware the proper way: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Adding_your_own_hardware
