View Full Version : [ubuntu] drivers for the PC hardware

January 5th, 2010, 09:43 PM
I have an old Gateway E-4000 PC...wondering if the drivers in the PC currently running fine with Windows XP are the same as those needed to run Linux Ubuntu? or ... do I need a whole new set of drivers for this new OS? :P

No, your windows drivers would be of useless in a linux installation.

However, your hardware is likely to work out of the box in Ubuntu.

Try loading up a live cd and see if anything doesn't work.
