options to check hdwre compatability before installing
trying to check hardware status in 11.10.
booted from cd on a sony laptop.
specifically interested in checking to see if webcam will work.
webcam is ricoh 5u875.
Also interested in checking hardware compatibility before installing OS on it. New to 11.10.
Are there any options for checking hardwre compatability while booted from cd other than going to
a hardware compatibility website? Suggestions welcome
