tagline: From openSUSE
Welcome to the Hardware Portal edit
Hardware support provides challenges to any distribution of Linux. The following pages are used by the openSUSE community to record the compatibility of various hardware and full systems with openSUSE community Linux distribution. Please share your experience by adding your hardware, especially if you had some issue that you was able to solve.
If a link to some device is red, that means we have no information about it yet. Please help by contributing what you have learned, or experienced about it.
How to add hardware information to the list?
The easiest way would be to use:
which will give some information about devices.
There are some other ways to obtain hardware information, often in a better format.
After you have data, you can post that as separate page in HCL namespace. Page title should be something like:
HCL:Dell Inspiron 545 (hardware)
Adding HCL: will keep hardware information away from direct wiki search, but it will be available trough special wiki search powered by Google search at Mediawiki:GoogleSearch.
