    Everyone is welcome to post here, as long as it is hardware related data. For help with hardware problems, please use the standard procedure of searching the forums, and starting your own thread for assistance if no answer is found.

    Give detailed explanations when reporting compatible hardware.

    Also Do not post any lspci outputs in this thread as they will be removed with out question.

    Please Only List
    1)Version Of Ubuntu
    2)Type Of Hardware

    *NOTE* This thread is exclusively for the listing of compatible hardware. Any idle chatter or unrelated posts will be moved/removed accordingly. *NOTE*

    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibiliy List.

    Ubuntu 6.10
    Dell Precision M90 laptop workstation:
    2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo T7200, 4Mb cache | 2Gb (2*1024) Samsung DDR2-667 5.0-5-5-13 | Seagate Momentus 7200.1 100GB 7200, 8MB cache | NVIDIA Quadro FX2500M, 512Mb, driving 1920x1200 LCD | Maxtor 3200 USB2 500GB 7200, 16MB cache | Sony DVD+/-RW DW-Q58A | Broadcom gigabit ethernet

    The processor is not recognised, but runs, and is correctly shown as two cores.
    The video card - the OpenGL version of the G71 core as used on 7900GTX - is not recognised, shown as an 'unknown device 029a', but runs at native resolution and full color depth. Adding the NVIDIA-supplied binary driver enables full OpenGL support which works well.

    The Ricoh SD/MMC/MemoryStick/xD reader is partially recognised.

    I have not tried the IEE1394 port or the smart card reader.
    Sound works, burning DVD works.

    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    HP Pavilion dm3-2010us thin and light laptop
    AMD Athlon II Neo Dual Core Processor K325
    320 GB hard drive
    4GB DDR3 SDRAM

    Installed ubuntu 10.04 (64-bit) in dual-boot configuration with Windows 7 (64-bit Home Premium). I used the Windows partition editor to shrink the Windows partition and deleted the HPTOOLS partition (contents saved in Windows). Smallest size Windows would allow was about 150 GB. That left about the same amount of space for ubuntu. After that installation was straightforward.

    I added a Logitech laser mouse and Samsung USB DVD drive (shared w/netbook).

    Most everything works--minor problem with touch pad not turning off (seen in other HPs).

    This is a nice and fast laptop--starts up and shuts down about twice as fast as Windows.

    1. Ubuntu 10.10 Alpha 3
    2. Intel Celeron D 335 / 2.8 GHz, 256 MB, 1 x 80 GB - standard - ATA-100 - 7200 rpm, AC '97.

    4. SR1411NX

    Yes, this was very slow with Windows but not too fast with Ubuntu. There are no drivers for the integrated graphics so don't bother searching for them. I know they don't exist. The OS freezes and at around 30-50 min., it just shows some weird images and stays like that until you force to shut it down. It now has 1GB RAM and I took off the PCI modem and card reader to conserve more power and it also helped in Windows 7 to stop showing me the safely remove hardware dialog for the faulty drivers. The fan gets out of control when the PC is idle. Other than that, the system boots quite fast.

    Had to use Alternate Install CD, But runs great (compared to XP on the same computer). Recommend using IceWM as Desktop Environment.
