Hi

I would like to purchase to my notebook an usb tv tuner, but I couldn't find any listing, what is already is tried out, or runs flawlessly on Pardus?

If it's doesn't exists, I would like to gladly see one.

I would like to see one as well. There is a website which is completely Turkish for hardware compatibility.
http://pardon.pardus.org.tr/

I would gladly install such a script on my server. Would be nice to have a simple site like 'Pardon' in English, only the developers prefer to wait untill Pardus 2008 is launched. Because by then a lot of hardware incompatibility problems will be fixed.

Untill that time, you can take a look at the Ubuntu list (most complete because most popular). Because if it works on Ubuntu, it works on Pardus for sure!

Hi

thanks, i will surely check the list. I think this HCL listing and HW submission could be far more greater project, as it seems. On one side I think must combine the feedback prog. with translatable Pardon client - or
On another side - If I thinkin' on this more, is it possibe to somehow unite the databases in one common place (portal), to get an sure list what runs on most Linux distributions?

Ps - HW Diagnostic possibilities in Tasma, as like in Everest?

What do you mean by Everest?
Would be great to run a Linux-wide compibility database, only for a start I would just enjoy to check which eg audiocard to buy before ordering.

Well, I have tought that there are so many "diagnostic" apps, like lshw, sysinfo, and so on - but none of them handling (listing) all my hardware state, or really configurable, or detects my newly plugged USB devices.

What if to implement an extension (or module) to tasma to see all stuff - all my devices (eg. current status - monitoring), and with some diagnostic possibilities - like printing test page directly, color calibration, changing sound output or net-tools on one common panel without the hassle of many configuring apps or always get terminal, dmesg and the others. I would like to see later also maybe bindings to the Hw database, link to hw manuals, and maybe to the PiSi to easily check driver updates for specified, or all of my hw. In this idea are so much potential... Or maybe link to e-stores to ordering... I know that idea is a bit crazy, but it could be useful as Pardus evolving.

What do you think?

Would be a great idea, especially when you could upload your diagnostic data to a compitability site. This way everybody can check if a piece of hardware is working properly, and which drivers they are using. If a problem is found in a new release this can also easy be handled.

If only a developer would pick up this idea.  Undecided Undecided
