    Talking Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List

    Ubuntu 8.04 on Jetway 7F2WE1G Mini-ITX board. Worked OOB. Removed CPU fan, case fan is sufficient to keep CPU a few degrees above ambient (idle). This is my seventh Linux system so far, and caused the least issues or problems That said, this box is very basic, just 80 gig SATA disk, no video effects. Just browsing and downloading. And webserver. This box replaced an aging Via Epia (800 MHz C3) which was getting too slow. The Epia ran 7.04 with also few issues.

    Ubuntu 8.04

    AMD Opteron 165 1.8Ghz (x2), 2GB PC3200 DDR, Epox 9na3j+ motherboard, ATI Radeon x800GTO AGP 256 MB, Creative Soundblaster 24Bit, 2x 750GB SATA Samsugn HD.

    It runs fine except for some video issues, I get frame tearing in playback and when I run an app that does 3d acceleration I often get flickering.

    Compaq Persario 5003US desktop.
    933mhz Pentium III processor.
    384MB RAM.
    80GB HD.
    CD R/RW.
    17" CRT montior.
    MI internet USB keyboard.
    MI usb wired optical mouse.
    Ubuntu 8.04 OS.

    Works great! Before Ubuntu the computer had Window's ME OS, and didn't work half the time. After upgrading the RAM so I could install from a live CD the computer has worked like brand new. Saved me $$$ that I would of used to buy a new desktop. Everything works awesome. Could max out my RAM at 512MB for a little faster performance.

    HP Pavilion dv6000
    Intel Core 2DuoT7500(2.2GHz/4MB L2)
    2GB DDR2 Ram
    383MB NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS
    Intel(R) PRO/Wireless4965AGN w/bluetooth
    120GB 5400RPM SATA HD

    Dual boot for now due to a CAD program I use in college that requires M$.
    I also have a Xerox Phaser 6180 that Ubuntu recognized right off the bat with no problem.

    This machine and Hardy seem to be a great match. I have tried various flavors of Linux in the past and always grew tired of configuring hardware. It is because of this match that I have become a Ubuntu follower. I was amazed how easy it was to get a wireless connection with Linux or that it was even possible considering my past experience.
    I would definitely recommend this laptop and Ubuntu.
    On a side note I spent days and days trying to get mac mini loaded with Linux with no joy. It has 10.3 loaded and the firmware that just will not coroperate. After the ease of the install on this HP I was a little spoiled and have since sworn off Apple because they now seem just like M$ and just want your money. Plus Ubuntu is now making life for the beginning programmer and want to be Linux user a whole lot easier.

    Ubuntu 8.04.1

    HP Pavilion ZE4800 (Actually ZE8405US)
    2.1 Ghz AMD Athlon XP 2800+
    768 MB Kingston PC2700 RAM (1X512 1X256)
    60GB HDD
    ATI Radeon 320M IGP (A.K.A. ATI Radeon U1)
    Broadcom 4306 802.11b/g wireless card
    MacPhyter LAN adapter
    Conexant AC-Link Audio/Modem card

    Everything works Out of the box, with exception of some errors at boot that can be ignored, and the obvious Broadcom 4306 issues.

    As for the Broadcom 4306, simply using NDISwrapper fixed my problems.

    A8N32SLI deluxe

    Ubuntu hangs on installation or start up.
    message : Busybox v 1.1.3

    This problem was solved by adding the following to boot options :

    all_generic_ide floppy=off

    First I erased "---" at the end of the boot line.

    Asus A8N32 sli works fine now with Ubuntu 8.04

    Right out of the box I popped in the 8.04 LTS cd and got everything working but the DVD player, camera/mic, and the little memory stick Pro DUO reader. I think that it's recognizing the hardware for the fingerprint scanner, but there's no software to tell it to do anything yet.

    Only issue here is the brightness is very dim even with xbacklight at 100%, my brightness applet is not working, one red X there. Fn+F keys dun work to adjust brightness but work for volume and mute.

    Acer Aspire 5583WXMi

    Processor Core 2 Duo
    Processor speed 1.66GHz
    Amt of RAM 512 MB (max 4096 MB)
    Hard drive 120 GB
    Optical drive DVD Super Multi
    Graphics hardware Nvidia GeForce Go 7300
    Diagonal screen size 14.1 inch
    Wireless LAN 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g
    Webcam Yes

    Could not enable hardware 3D graphics, would cause frequent freezes and lockups, found the solution to problem at Solution prevents the graphics card from going into power saving mode so battery life is not very good.

    Although the wifi button works, the wifi LED doesn't turn on.

    VGA-out has some problems. The screen on external monitor blanks out (turns black) when i move the mouse. When I stop moving the mouse, the screen comes back.

    Everything else works well:
    1. Audio (needed to play around with mixer to get internal mic to work)
    2. Ethernet/Wireless
    3. Memory/SD card
    4. DVD/CD Read/burn
    5. Suspend/hibernate/power saving mode (dim display)
    6. hardware buttons (volume control, brightness, email, web)
    7. Webcam

    Bluetooth hardware button appears to work but I have not tested if it actually connects to bluetooth devices. Built-in modem was not tested.
