Hardware compatibility

Post#1 by AcnapyxoB » 14 Nov 2022, 17:58

I did not see elsewhere in the forum a topic about hardware compatibility.
And decided to start with my list.

I have tested:

With Porteus v5.0 32bit:
Toshiba Satellite L200
HP Mini 210 (Porteus v5.0rc3 32bit with b43-firmware wi-fi)

With Porteus v5.0 x86_64:
HP Elitebook 8530W
Lenovo T61, T400, T440, T510, T540p
Lenovo L410 (with intel_wifi_6300)
DELL Latitude 5500 (bluetooth not working)

We can list the devices and then make a more complete list!
Porteus v5.0

I have used Porteus v5.0 x86_64 on an Acer Aspire 5 (N20C6) (wifi/bluetooth/sound card not working)

I was able to copy a driver from another linux distro (MX Linux) (thanks Ed_p) to get the WIFI working, but was unable to get sound or bluetooth working.

I use Porteus v5.0 x86_64 on a Dell Inspiron 14. Wifi needs a iwlwifi-QuZ driver module.
