www.hardware4linux.info website has now reached 1500 reported Linux systems. It can now be considered as a serious user database which grows everyday and allows everyone to compare objectively support of its various peripherals with the other users.
All components of the system are inserted into the database and can both be ranked and commented so that you’re even able to give little tips like “my SD card reader isn’t working about of the box, but by using X or Y, it’s working perfectly”.
So don’t hesitate to :
- Report your system if you have not done so already
- Update your hardware4linux collector if you have an older version (less than 0.9.4)
- Update your configuration if you have reported it before and has changed it. In order to do that, you just have to give your machine the same name than for the previous report.
For those interested, here’s my laptop configuration.
It’s possible as well to subscribe to the comments RSS feed.
Ah, one last word : try to be fair. Reporting something is working perfectly out-of-the-box (rank “5”) and then indicating in the comments that it doesn’t work, it’s giving wrong input to the database and it won’t help anyone…
