    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty
    Kernel 2.6.28-11-generic x86_64

    Sun Ultra 27 Workstation
    Intel Xeon W3520 8-core 2.66GHz
    8MB shared Level 3 cache
    256K Level 2 cache per core
    3x2GB DDR3 ECC unbuffered DRAM 1333MHz
    500GB SATA Disk Drive
    NVIDIA Quadro FX 380 graphics accelerator
    Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000BASE-T NIC
    16x DVD Writer/48x CD-ROM Writer
    Sun type 7 keyboard
    SunL7ZF 17" LCD screen

    Notes:
    Virtually everything worked "out of the box".
    The keyboard was not detected properly so some superfluous keys such as "find", "again" etc don't work.
    The NVIDIA graphics drivers had to be loaded via System > Administration > Hardware Drivers.
    Other than that everything was properly detected.
    It was a clean install and the machine runs beautifully

    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    Laptop hardware incompatibility:

    I can't seem to get the proper screen resolution. Some menus are hard to use/see because they are bigger than the screen.

    My laptop is an HP pavilion dv 2000, not sure if it's the graphics card:

    NVIDIA GeForce Go 7150M

    or the display:

    14.1" WXGA High-Definition BrightView Widescreen Display (1280 x 800)

    that is causing the problem.

    When I open the 'display preferences' menu, it says the monitor is not recognized.
    I've already installed the most recent driver for the graphics card.

    Help please?? It's annoying!

    1) Kubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty)

    HP Pavillion 753n
    Intel Pentium 4A, 2533 MHz (4.75 x 533) Processor
    1024 MB (DDR SDRAM) Memory
    500GB IDE Disk Drive HDD
    NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 (256 MB) GPU
    Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC (192.168.0.101) Ethernet
    PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-105 (DVD:4x/2x/12x, CD:16x/8x/32x DVD-RW) Primary DVD-RW Drive
    GVision L7EH (131331301963) Monitor
    FIC VC19 (6 PCI, 1 AGP, 3 DIMM, Audio, LAN) Motherboard

    I am using a HP Pavillion 753n. I transplanted the motherboard from the original case into an Antec Three Hundred case, and the front-mounted USB ports and everything work fine.

    Other than that, using a Logitech Wireless USB Mouse, standard PS/2 keyboard (with multimedia buttons, but I haven't tried using ndiswrapper to make that work since I only recently found the XP driver for it).

    I have a HP Photosmart C4480 Printer but I haven't used it quite yet, haven't had to print anything in Kubuntu yet.

    No special configuration settings, am plugged in hard-wire to ethernet so I haven't had to setup wireless internet yet, although I do have a D-Link DWL-132 wireless adapter that works fine.

    Everything else worked fine, didn't need to install any special driver for the graphics card, as the default one works fine.

    The only thing that did not work correctly was the LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-451S (DVD+RW:4x/4x, DVD-RW:4x/2x, DVD-ROM:12x, CD-RW:40x/24x/40x . Will post details in the "hardware incompatibility list".

    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    Asus P5B-VM, Nvidia 8600GT, Hauppague Nova-T-500, Leadtek usb dongle

    8.04 & 8.10 intrepid

    no issues with live CDs - install was flawless

    mainboard functions 100% - was using both IDE & Sata, and onboard lan, onboard video was fine, but i needed DVI & so used nvidia 8600GT (gigabyte), only mainboard issue was that i couldn't get onboard nic to work with WOL. I used latest v4l drivers for Nova-t-500 & leadtek dongle, and all functions worked correctly. SPDIF also worked off the mainboard headers with newer alsa versions - ac3 pass thru worked on mythtv, mplayer etc

    Dell Optiplex GX240 with Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron installed on a dual-boot system

    Specs:
    1.7 GHz Pentium 4 Processor
    384 MB RAM (one 256 stick and one 128 stick) with 133 MHz FSB
    Two hard drives, a 40 GB with Ubuntu and a 20 GB with Windows 2000
    NVIDIA 3DForce FX-5200 128 MB video card (works with both Ubuntu's open source drivers and the proprietary drivers)
    Dynex DX-SC51 sound card (mobo sound card had to be deactivated for this to work in Ubuntu)

    Ubuntu runs pretty well, although not as fast as Windows 2000. RAM usually sits around 170 MB when idle and it's never peaked 300 MB (however, at it's peak, the swap has gotten up to 250 MB). The processor runs at it's peak when using YouTube and can't seem to handle playing Pandora in the background while doing anything mildly resource intensive. Sound is good quality and the video card/CPU can handle the cube desktop along with most other advanced settings (however, it can crash if too much is going on at the same time). Boot up time is pretty quick but it takes a while to load up GNOME (usually 1.5 to 4 minutes).

    Wrong, Athlon XP-M is not a K8-based processor!

    It's 32-bit only!

    Ubuntu 9.04 on:
    FUJITSU SIEMENS Dual core 3.06 Ghz P5SD1-FM2
    ATI Technologies Inc RV515 [Radeon X1300]
    1 Gig of RAM
    250 GB HDD
    SiS AC'97 Sound Controller

    Also running
    Epson TX100 Combo (Printer, Scanner)
    AMW 19" Monitor

    Everything worked with little need for configuration, EXCEPT the scanner. Info from the Ubuntu forums where not very helpful, in the end I used a driver from AVASYS. Easy install, worked straight out (once I managed to navigate through the site): http://avasys.jp/hp/menu000000900/hpg000000859.htm
