    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    Xubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot

    Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 [1]
    CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4GB DDR3
    Hard Disk: WD Caviar Blue 500GB SATA 6GB/s
    Optical: Pioneer DV-RS19LBK DVD+/-RW DVD-RAM
    Network: Addon 300Mb/s Wireless N PCI card [2]
    Printer: Canon Pixma ip4200

    Audio was crackly for some applications, such as VLC and Skype. The motherboard has a HDA Intel sounds card and after a couple of false starts, I got it working by setting the second position fix, as detailed in

    Wireless did not work with Xubuntu's default driver, the Ralink rt2800pci.
    After moving the machine to the router and hardwiring them together, I followed the instructions at, which worked. Note that the source code linked in there, is a copy of the code available from the Ralink support site at The difference is that the config has been pre-modified, as per Ralink's suggestions.

    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    My old WD Raptor hard drive was failing (it almost went completely a few days ago) and I wanted to upgrade to an SSD but my motherboard with its rather unique VIA SATA I controller couldn't handle a new SATA III device. Yes, they're supposed to be backwards-compatible but this is the only controller that isn't.

    So I got a new(ish) motherboard along with a new SSD. I installed Ubuntu 11.10 on it, it's now running fine:

    MSI G31TM-P21
    Crucial M4 64 GB SSD

    This works great as an OS drive, there's lots and lots of space - still about 55 GB free! Incidentally it's also very very fast even on the SATA II controller on this board. Splash screen to desktop...5 seconds.

    I'm very pleased.

    Talking Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    Philips webcams have been nice with my Dell L520 with Ubuntu 10.10!

    1. Version Of Ubuntu: Ubuntu 10.10, with Macbuntu theme
    2. Type Of Hardware: webcam
    3. Hardware Maker: Philips
    4. Hardware Model: SPZ2000 and SPC900NC

    Both has worked flawlessly out-of-the-box with Ubuntu 10.10, with Cheese, Skype and Flash +10. I only had to add the env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/ before the commands, but it was a single modification to the menu and it was all. I have used gstreamer-properties to test the cams, which also worked at once, no frills, from the first time (with the benefit of telling me they were V4L1/L2 compatible.)

    Although I have tested those webcams with a Dell L520, they also worked fine with Brazillian local makers Positivo and Itautec, both with Ubuntu 10.04.

    I have an HP Pavilion Model a6113w Product GC658AA-ABA that runs well with Ubuntu 11,10 32 bit.
    Could this machine also run the current 64 bit O/S version?

    This was a huge pain, but I'm finally here on a Llano APU!

    Version: 12.04 LTS AMD64 (beta 2)
    CPU: AMD A8-3850
    Mobo: ASUS F1A75-M LE

    How I did it thread.

    Gigabyte 970 + AMD 955

    Just put together two comps with the same specs, everything is running great on 10.04:

    Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3
    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb
    RAM: 6 GB Kingston
    Video Card: GeForce GT 430

    Downloaded the video driver direct from nvidia website, works great, downloaded the realtek driver from their site, was a piece of cake, clear audio.

    At first I tried to install 11.10, and it did NOT install at all, the installation hung consistently at one point. I don't know why, and I hope that I can install 12.04 later, after they get most of the bugs worked out of it. But thats not a big worry for me.

    This is a fairly cheap system and very fast, I overloaded the RAM to be sure it would fly using the pae kernel.

    Thought I'd add my new webcam to this list. Own brand from Asda (Walmart).

    Princely sum of £7.95 for 1300k pixels and built in mono-microphone.

    Video fine on Camorama webcam viewer

    Video & Audio works fine in and

    Video fine on Google+ Hangouts but no audio - a quick Google reveals a number of users having same issue.

    Haven't got Skype so not checked.

    Also, all hardware in my sig below works fine.

    AMD Bulldozer FX-4100 Quad Core @ 3.6GHz, NVidia GT430, Asus M5A78L-M LX, 8GB DDR3, Western Digital Green 1TB SATA2 hard-drive
