    HP 500 Laptop

    Touchpad (Synaptic) doesn't work by default, tried on Edgy and Feiesty, none of them worked.
    After applying the fix mentioned here:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=2069870
    the touchpad works, but Ubuntu stops detecting my WiFi card (eth1 dissapears from the system, but eth0 and the modem work fine).

    Re: Desktop Hardware Incompatibility List.

    Logitech Bluetooth Desktop MX5000 (combination keyboard&mouse) is partially incompatible.
    It will work in legacy HID mode, but then all other bluetooth functionality (pairing with bluetooth phone) is disabled.
    You can get the dongle in HCI mode, but then the keyboard and mouse stop working.
    It is impossible to use keyboard&mouse and at the same time use any other bluetooth devices.

    Dapper and Edgy incompatability with Rosewill Wireless keyboard and a Logitec Trackman Wheel mouse. Works fine with Breezy. Takes a long time to reinstall. Breezy - Dapper - Edgy.

    ENE CB-712/4 (rev 10) 5-in-1 card reader
    None of the cards I have tried show up nor do i see any system events when they are inserted.

    Wireless Card
    In Dapper showed up as Broadcom 4319
    In Edgy shows up as Broadcom Corporation Dell Wireless 1470 Dual Band WLAN (even thought my laptop is from Lenovo and does not use Dell parts)
    It kind of works using the BCM43xx drivers with the wl_apsta.o firmware package however it will ocasionally cause X to lock up solid and I often have to disconnect and reconnect to networks because it will randomly stop communicating.

    Re: Desktop Hardware Incompatibility List.

    Motherboard Asus Commando, 0803 BIOS with SATA (AHCI) enabled.

    Live CD boots into GUI from IDE CD-drive but further installation is not possible because no HDs are detected. I suspect this has something to do with lacking ICH8R support in kernel.

    EDIT: Feisty daily build 31.3.2007 is now able to install itself with kernel 2.6.20-13 on my SATA drives. Big thanks to all active developers!
