    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
    Gigabyte H61N-USB3 motherboard
    Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G2120 @ 3.10GHz
    8GB PC1333 RAM
    Built-in video (HDMI), audio (HDMI), network (1000baseT)
    OCZ-VERTEX PLUS 60GB SSD
    Windows MCE-compatible USB infrared remote

    Works well except the audio, which has a bit of static. I can only get the HDMI audio to work at all (with static) if I use the MythTV software mixer; everything else results in incomprehensible audio. If I could fix the audio it would be basically perfect for front-end work. The box itself is silent, you cannot even hear the fan from more than a few inches away. I know nothing of how audio works on Linux; any help would be appreciated.

    Would like to use the builtin Intel MPEG decoder too, but am using HQ OpenGL for blitting. Works fine.

    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    OS: Lubuntu 13.04
    PC: Dell Dimension 4300, Pentium II, 768MB RAM (upgraded from original 256)
    Old system, shipped with Windows Me. Lubuntu works great; now it's useful again. (Have not yet tried WiFi or anything "fancy.")

    First of all: This is old and slow hardware. By modern standards it is hardly useful, and some applications like Flash and Chromium are not available for PPC, so one should only install Buntu for the challenge of it.

    The hardware specifications are

    When using a standard keyboard F12 opens the CD tray. Windows + Alt + o + f gives access to Open Firmware.

    My iLamp needed a new CD drive. It takes a little while to disassemble the unit, but it is doable.

    Download the 12.04 mini ISO for PPC and install from CD. Only a single-use CD worked, neither rewritables nor boot from USB did. Pressing c during power-on boots from CD.

    The install works as usual except for some vivid colours, but one might need to enter the package mirror manually.

    When booting from hard drive some boot options are needed. Mine (sporting an Nvidia screen card) needed the command

    Code:
    Linux nouveau.modeset=0
    or
    Code:
    Linux nomodeset
    at the yaboot prompt. Booting without options shows an interesting display of slowly fading colours and patterns.

    With the minimal system installed

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
    brings rest of it (note to self: Lubuntu would probably have been a better choice than Xubuntu).

    Now booting into the system (with the above-mentioned boot options) gives a barely usable desktop in Andy Warhol-ish colours. I didn't find a way to make the default Nouveau driver behave well, but switching to the older nv driver did the trick.

    The system is stable, but it might freeze without warning for some time doing regular tasks. Just wait and then wait some more; it will come back to life.

    It's a good idea to add System Load Monitor or similar to the top bar to see how the workload is. When updates or another heavy task is going on just leave it for a while.

    Last Sunday did a box with these specifications:

    1)Version Of Ubuntu : Ubuntu Studio 13.04 (AMD64)
    2)Type Of Hardware : Mother Board & CPU
    3)Hardware Maker : M/B ASUS & CPU AMD
    4)Hardware Model: ASUS 88TM M/B & Phenom X2, 3.2 Ghz

    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    Ubuntu 13.04
    Hardware:
    P4 2,66GHz(FSB 400)

    786 MB PC2100(32 bit, single layer)
    Gigabyte GA-85GXP main circuit board
    160 GB HDD/7200rpm/8 MB cache/SATA II
    Nvidia GeForce 7900GS/256bit/256MB DDR2/AGP 8X

    Works without any problems...just turn off unity's animation effects and tweak the graphic card for a bit more performance.
    Very stable and smooth now!

    Performance is not overwhelming but okay for me, with ext2 formatted Toshiba Store.E Canvio 2TB hdd:
    Timing cached reads: 2068 MB in 2.00 seconds = 1034.12 MB/sec
    Timing buffered disk reads: 274 MB in 3.01 seconds = 90.96 MB/sec

    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibility List.

    Version Of Ubuntu : 12.04 LTS
    Type Of Hardware : Core 2 Duo E4400 (2.00Ghz) / 4GB DDR2-800 / 500GB WD HD / ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX (onboard GF 9300 & WiFi unplugged)
    Hardware Maker : Zotac
    Hardware Model : GeForce 9300-ITX

    Had a hard time making audio work through HDMI, turns out you have to unmute S/PDIF 1 in alsamixer.

    EDIT : Oh! and suspend & Hibernate don't work, I just get a blank screen with a blinking promtp resulting in a forced restart.

    HP dc7700: In order to boot from USB the BIOS must be upgraded from v01.10 to v01.15. After that everything works well with a 64 bit Xubuntu 13.04.

    Some old threads in the forum talk about the need for boot options. No such need using 13.04 and v01.15.

    Trendnet TEW-703 PIL wirefree PCI card (Ralink RT5360 chip)

    In spite of the Trendnet TEW-703 not being mentioned on the Linux compatibility list it works out of the box with Xubuntu 13.04 using WPA encryption.

    Acer Aspire x3470
    Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04 tested, both work perfectly, even when dual booted with windows 7.
    Hardware:
    AMD A6 3620 APU with AMD Radeon HD 6530d 512 mb ddr3
    8Gb ddr3 RAM at 1333mhz
    standard motherboard, case and power supply.
    Everything works out of the box, wifi, ethernet and everything else.
    Just install the AMD catalyst driver and it is an ubuntu pc that feels like it is preinstalled with it
