1. Introduction
This document lists most of the hardware components (not whole computers) known to be supported or not
supported under Linux, so reading through this document you can choose the components for your own Linux
computer and know what to avoid. As the list of components supported by Linux changes constantly, this
document will never be complete. If a component is not mentioned in this HOWTO, I simply have not found
support for the component and nobody has told me about support.
Subsections titled 'Alpha, Beta drivers' list hardware with alpha or beta drivers in varying degrees of usability.
Note that some drivers only exist in alpha kernels, so if you see something listed as supported but isn't in your
version of the Linux kernel, upgrade.
1.1. Notes on binary−only drivers
Some devices are supported by binary−only modules; avoid these when you can. Binary−only modules are
modules which are compiled for ONE kernel version. The source code for these modules has NOT been
released. This may prevent you from upgrading or maintaining your system. It will also prevent you from
using the component on alternate (usually non−x86) architectures.
Linus Torvalds says "I allow binary−only modules, but I want people to know that they are _only_ ever
expected to work on the one version of the kernel that they were compiled for." (See
http://lwn.net/1999/0211/a/lt−binary.html for the rest of the message.)
1.2. Notes on proprietary drivers
Various proprietary drivers for sound, video, etc. exist for Linux. Tracking these proprietary drivers is beyond
the scope of this document. These drivers might be mentioned at various points in this document, but note that
no effort has been made to make sure that this information is current.
1.3. System architectures
This document primarily deals with Linux for x86−based platforms. For other platforms, check the following:
• Alpha
• ARM
• CRIS (Axis Communications ETRAX 100LX embedded CPU)
• IA−64
• m68k
• MIPS
• PA−RISC
• PowerPC
• S/390
• SuperH
• SPARC
There are also the ELKS and uClinux ports, which are forks of the mainstream kernel source designed for
MMU−less (mostly very low−end and embedded) systems.

1.4. Related sources of information
• The LDP has an index of hardware−related HOWTO documents.
• Price Watch (street price search engine, also useful for finding specs on various bits of hardware)
• Guide to Computer Vendors
1.5. Known problems with this document
This document can't possibly be up−to−date at all times. I would like to see this document be a useful
reference again. The following items need to be fixed for that to happen:
• Old cruft needs to be eliminated. Much of this document was written in 1995, give or take, when PCI
was new and not supported terribly well, and ISA PnP was seen as something evil. Oh, how the times
have changed...
Also, many of the model numbers listed in this document are no longer available, and are probably
not of much interest to the vast majority of people. Personally, I think hardware that hasn't been
available for more than 5 years or so can safely be removed. Old versions of this document will
always be available on the Internet...
• URLs in this document need updating. I've begun to do that, but it is a big job... Diffs are welcome.
• In the process of updating and converting this document to DocBook, some cruft was introduced. If
anyone wants to help clean up this, get the latest source (preferably by emailing me at
<steve@silug.org>) and grep for "FIXME".
• Lists in this HOWTO that are available in other HOWTOs or FAQs need to be either updated here or
dropped completely from this document.
• Newer interfaces such as USB need to be added into the list. (Would a USB−attached hard drive go
under "USB", "Removable drives", "Hard drives", or all of the above?)
• And, of course, random hardware that just isn't listed in this document needs to be added.
All of this is going to require a lot of work. If this happens to interest you, please email
<steve@silug.org>. I can use the help. :−)
1.6. New versions of this document
The latest version of this document can be found on the Linux Documentation Project home site or any of its
many mirrors.
1.7. Feedback and corrections
If you have questions or comments about this document, please feel free to email Steven Pritchard at
<steve@silug.org>. I also welcome corrections and additions. At some point in the near future, I plan to
set up a web interface for adding components to this document. In the mean time, please just use the word
"hardware" somewhere in the subject when sending corrections or additions.

1.8. Acknowledgments
This document has passed through many hands. I don't know if he wrote the first version, but in 1993 Ed Carp
was maintaining it. In August of 1994, FRiC (Boy of Destiny) took over. After he fell off the face of the
planet in late 1995 or early 1996 (and we all miss him from IRC, I might add), Patrick Reijnen took over
(sometime in 1997) and continued to maintain this document until late 1999.
Recent versions of this document contained the following:
Thanks to all the authors and contributors of other HOWTO's, many things here are
shamelessly stolen from their works; to FRiC, Zane Healy and Ed Carp, the original authors
of this HOWTO; and to everyone else who sent in updates and feedbacks. Special thanks to
Eric Boerner and lilo (the person, not the program) for the sanity checks. And thanks to Dan
Quinlan for the original SGML conversion.
Many thanks to all those who have contributed to this document over the years.
In addition, I'd like to thank the many members of the Southern Illinois Linux Users Group and the Linux
Users of Central Illinois for giving me so many interesting problems to solve over the years, and, of course,
my wife Kara for putting up with me all these years. :−)

Be sure
you have a

BIOS and
a recent

kernel.
The following are old notes and are probably out of date.
• IBM PS/2 MCA systems
Supported since kernel version 2.0.7, but only for the stable kernel releases. For information you can
look at the Micro Channel Linux Home Page. Software for MCA systems can be found here.
Information on the MCA SCSI subsystem can be found here.
• EFA E5TX−AT motherboard has a solvable problem with RedHat Linux 5.0 and possibly other
versions of Linux. It spontaneously reboots while probing hardware. To solve, update BIOS to
version 1.01. Get the BIOS update here.
• The Zida 6MLX motherboard with PII Intel LX chipset is mentioned only to work with Linux when
the PII cache is disabled in BIOS. BIOS upgrade does not solve the problem. Symptom is random
reboots during or shortly after system boot.
2.2. Unsupported
• Supermicro P5MMA with BIOS versions 1.36, 1.37 and 1.4. Linux will not boot on this motherboard.
A new (beta) release of the BIOS which makes Linux boot, is available here.
• Supermicro P5MMA98. Linux will not boot on this motherboard. A new (beta) release of the BIOS
which makes Linux boot, is available here.
• DataExpert Corp. ExpertColor TX531 V1.0 motherboard with chipset ACER M1531 (Date: 9729,
TS6) and ACER M1543 (Date: 9732 TS6) seems to present not reproducible segmentations faults,
kernel oops and kernel hangs under heavy load and tape access. The problem seems to be the
PCI−bus, respectively the ACER chipset.

3. Laptops
In general, any laptop will support Linux fine. Some specific features (wireless and video especially) may
have issues, but these should not interfere with basic functionality.
Currently, laptops with the Intel® Centrino" logo are the most likely to work perfectly under Linux. The Intel
PRO/Wireless 2100 and 2200 802.11b/g wireless cards are supported by drivers released by Intel that are
being integrated into the stock Linux kernel. Accelerated 3D support for the on−board video is provided by
the DRI project and is included in recent releases of X.org and XFree86.
For more information about Linux and laptops, the following sites are good starting points.
• Linux Laptop Homepage
• Linux Mobile Guide − A Guide for Laptops and Mobile Devices
Other information related to laptops can be found at the following sites:
• Avanced Power Management
• Notebook battery status
• non−blinking cursor
• other general info
3.1. Specific laptops
• Compaq Concerto (pen driver)
• Compaq Contura Aero
• IBM ThinkPad
• IBM Thinkpad 770 series
• NEC Versa M and P
• Tadpole P1000
• Tadpole P1000 (another one)
• TI TravelMate 4000M
• TI TravelMate 5100
• Toshiba Satellite Pro 400CDT
3.2. PCMCIA
See the PCMCIA/Cardbus section and the Linux PCMCIA HOWTO for more information on PCMCIA and
Cardbus cards.
3. Laptops

4. CPU/FPU
Please see this note for more on non−x86 hardware.
4.1. Intel
Intel 386SX/DX/SL, 486SX/DX/SL/SX2/DX2/DX4, Pentium, Pentium Pro, Pentium II, Pentium III (regular
and Xeon versions), Pentium 4, and Celeron (including mobile versions of all of the above) are all supported.
4.2. AMD
AMD 386SX/DX, 486SX/DX/DX2/DX4, K5, K6, K6−2, K6−3, and Athlon (all varieties, including MP) are
all supported. Older versions of K6 should be avoided as they are buggy. Setting "internal cache" disabled in
bios setup can be a workaround. Some early K6−2 300Mhz have problems with the system chips.
AMD's 64−bit Opteron and Athlon64 processors, as well as the mobile Athlon64 (or Turion64), are also
supported, running either in 32−bit or 64−bit mode. For 32−bit mode, compile a kernel for i386, optionally
optimized for Athlons, since that's essentially what these processors look like in 32−bit mode. For 64−bit
mode, compile a kernel for x86_64. It will still run 32−bit binaries, assuming all the appropriate libraries are
available. Opteron and Athlon64 systems use standard PC hardware, so the information in this HOWTO still
applies.
The old NexGen processors are also supported.
A few very early AMD 486DX's may hang in some special situations. All current chips should be okay and
getting a chip swap for old CPU's should not be a problem.
4.3. Cyrix
Cyrix 386SX/DX, 486SX/DX, 5x86, 6x86, and MediaGX are all supported.
• enable cache on Cyrix processors
• Cyrix software cache control
• Cyrix 5x86 CPU register settings
4.4. IDT
IDT Winchip C6−PSME2006A processors are supported under Linux.
4.5. Transmeta
The Transmeta Crusoe processors are supported.
4. CPU/FPU
8
Linux Hardware Compatibility HOWTO
4.6. Misc. notes
Linux has built−in FPU emulation if you don't have a math coprocessor.
Linux supports SMP (multiple CPUs) in all 2.x kernels. See the Linux SMP HOWTO for more information.
ULSI Math*Co series has a bug in the FSAVE and FRSTOR instructions that causes problems with all
protected mode operating systems. Some older IIT and Cyrix chips may also have this problem.
There are problems with TLB flushing in UMC U5S chips in very old kernels. (1.1.x)
4. CPU/FPU
9
5. Memory
All memory like DRAM, EDO and SDRAM can be used with Linux. Be aware that older kernels or kernels
running on a mortherboard with an older BIOS may only be able to detect 64MB of RAM. If you have this
problem, when you add more than 64 Mb of memory you have to add the following line to your LILO
configuration file:
append="mem=<number of Mb>M"
So when you have 96 MB of memory this should become
append="mem=96M"
Don't use a number higher than the amount of RAM you really have. This will cause crashes.
5. Memory
10
6. Video cards
Please note that this section is currently being updated, so some information may not be entirely correct or
complete.
Linux will work with all video cards in text mode, VGA cards not listed below probably will still work with
mono VGA and/or standard VGA drivers.
If you're looking into buying a cheap video card to run X, keep in mind that accelerated cards (ATI Mach,
ET4000/W32p, S3) are MUCH faster than unaccelerated or partially accelerated (Cirrus, WD) cards.
"32 bpp" is actually 24 bit color aligned on 32 bit boundaries. It does NOT mean the cards are capable of 32
bit color, they still display 24 bit color (16,777,216 colors). 24 bit packed pixels modes are not supported in
XFree86, so cards that can do 24 bit modes to get higher resolutions in other OS's are not able to do this in X
using XFree86. These cards include Mach32, Cirrus 542x, S3 801/805/868/968, ET4000, and others.
AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) support is growing fast. Most of the X−servers (both freely available and
proprietary versions) have more or less support for AGP.
6.1. XFree86
The following is a list of cards known to work with XFree86 versions 3.3.6 and/or 4.1.0. See the XFree86 web
site for more information.

Linux Hardware Compatibility HOWTO
6.2. Proprietary X servers
Proprietary X servers provide support for cards not supported by XFree86, and might give better
performances for cards that are supported by XFree86. Contact the vendors directly or check the Commercial
HOWTO for more info.
• Xi Graphics (Accelerated−X)
• Metro Link (Metro−X)
6.3. Kernel Framebuffer (fbdev)
The kernel supports a graphical console on some video cards. This support was originally designed for
non−x86 architectures which generally do not have text−capable video cards. It was integrated into the kernel
in 2.2, and now supports various video cards.
More information can be found at linux−fbdev.org.
The following cards are supported:
• Amiga builtin chipset (amifb)
• ATARI builtin chipset (atafb)
• ATI Rage128 (aty128fb)
• ATI Mach64, RageII, RageII+, RageIIc (atyfb)
• Hercules Graphics Adaptor (hgafb)
• Matrox Millennium I, Millennium II, Mystique, G200 (matroxfb)
• PowerMAC "platinum" (platinumfb)
• S3 Savage4 (savagefb)
• 3Dfx Voodoo, Voodoo2, Voodoo3 (tdfxfb)
• S3 Trio64 (trio64fb)
• All VESA 2.0 cards (vesafb)
6.4. SVGALIB (graphics for console)
• VGA
• EGA
• ARK Logic ARK1000PV/2000PV
• ATI VGA Wonder
• ATI Mach32
• Cirrus 542x, 543x
• OAK OTI−037/67/77/87
• S3 (limited support)
• Trident TVGA8900/9000
• Tseng ET3000/ET4000/W32
6. Video cards
31
7. Controllers (hard drive)
Enhanced IDE (EIDE) interfaces are supported, including support for UDMA and ATA/33, ATA/66, and so
on for some controllers and compatible drives. Linux will detect these IDE interfaces:
• CMD−640 (Support for buggy interfaces in kernel 2.2)
• RZ1000 (Support for buggy interfaces in kernel 2.2)
• AEC62XX
• ALI M15x3
• AMD Viper
• CY82C693
• Cyrix CS5530 MediaGX
• HPT34X
• HPT366
• Intel PIIXn
• NS87415
• OPTi 82C621
• Promise PDC20246/PDC20262/PDC20267
• ServerWorks OSB4
• SiS5513
• SLC90E66
• Tekram TRM290
• VIA82CXXX
• DTC 2278D
• FGI/Holtek HT−6560B VLB (Support for secondary interface in kernel 2.2)
• Triton I (82371FB) (with busmaster DMA)
• Triton II (82371SB) (with busmaster DMA)
• ALI M14xx
• Promise DC4030
• QDI QD6580
• UMC 8672
Please see the IDE RAID controller section for information on IDE controllers with hardware RAID support.
Linux will work with standard IDE, MFM and RLL controllers. When using MFM/RLL controllers it is
important to use ext2fs and the bad block checking options when formatting the disk.
ESDI controllers that emulate the ST−506 (MFM/RLL/IDE) interface will also work. The bad block checking
comment also applies to these controllers.
Generic 8 bit XT controllers also work.
7.1. Alpha, Beta drivers
• UMC 8672 interfaces (experimental in kernel 2.2)
• Promise DC4030VL caching interface card (experimental support in kernel 2.2)
7. Controllers (hard drive)
32
8. Controllers (SCSI)
It is important to pick a SCSI controller carefully. Many cheap ISA SCSI controllers are designed to drive
CD−ROM's rather than anything else. Such low−end SCSI controllers are no better than IDE. See the SCSI
HOWTO and look at performance figures before buying a SCSI card.
Please see the SCSI RAID controller section for information on SCSI controllers with hardware RAID
support.
8.1. Supported
• AMI Fast Disk (VLB/EISA) (BusLogic compatible)
• Adaptec AVA−1502E (ISA/VLB) (AIC−6360) (AHA1520)
• Adaptec AVA−1505/1515 (ISA) (Adaptec AHA−152x compatible)
• Adaptec AVA−1825 (VLB) (Adaptec AHA−152x compatible)
This card has a SCSI, EIDE and floppy port which all work nicely.
• Adaptec AHA−1510/152x (ISA/VLB) (AIC−6260/6360)
• Adaptec AHA−154x (ISA) (all models)
• Adaptec AHA−174x (EISA) (in enhanced mode)
• Adaptec AHA−274x/274xT (EISA) (AIC−7771). The 274xT is supported since kernel series 2.1.x
(AHA2740)
• Adaptec AHA−284x (VLB) (AIC−7770) (AHA2740)
• Adaptec AHA−2910B (PCI) (since kernel series 2.1.x)
• Adaptec AHA−2920 (PCI). Use the Future Domain driver. LILO parameters are needed when used

10. IDE RAID Controllers
• Tekram D690CD IDE PCI Cache Controller (with RAID level 1 Mirroring and caching)
• ARCO Inc. DupliDisk IDE disk mirroring controller
Support for ATA, IDE, E−IDE and UDMA drive. Controllers available can be plugged into ISA and
PCI slots, and directly into the IDE controller. Furthermore, 3.5−inch and 5.25−inch Bay Mount units
are available that fit into the respective drive bays. More information at Arco's web site. Make sure
you have at least rev 3.00 of the firmware.
• 3ware Escalade IDE RAID controllers
3ware's 5000−series and 6000−series controllers have been supported since kernel 2.2.15. Support for
the 7000−series controllers and RAID5 on the 6000−series controllers requires kernel 2.4.5 or 2.2.20
or better. Also make sure to use a recent firmware for RAID 5, since older firmware revisions (and
older versions of the driver) can cause data corruption when a RAID 5 array runs degraded.
8000−series SATA cards also work fine with recent 2.4.x or 2.6.x kernels. 9000−series cards are
supported with the 3w−9xxx driver (instead of the older 3w−xxxx driver).
• Adaptec ATA RAID 2400A
4−port ATA/100 controller which supports RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 1+0, and RAID 5. Use the
dpt_i2o driver, which is included in recent 2.4.x kernels.
• Promise SuperTRAK SX6000
6−port ATA/100 controller which supports RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 1+0, RAID 3, and RAID 5. Use
the pti_st driver or the generic i2o drivers. Be sure to set the BIOS on the card for "Other OS" instead
of "Linux", and check for firmware updates.
10. IDE RAID Controllers
38
11. Controllers (I/O)
Any standard serial/parallel/joystick/combo cards. Linux supports 8250, 16450, 16550, and 16550A UART's.
Cards that support non−standard IRQ's (IRQ > 9) can be used.
See National Semiconductor's ``Application Note AN−493'' by Martin S. Michael. Section 5.0 describes in
detail the differences between the NS16550 and NS16550A. Briefly, the NS16550 had bugs in the FIFO
circuits, but the NS16550A (and later) chips fixed those. However, there were very few NS16550's produced
by National, long ago, so these should be very rare. And many of the ``16550'' parts in actual modern boards
are from the many manufacturers of compatible parts, which may not use the National ``A'' suffix. Also, some
multiport boards will use 16552 or 16554 or various other multiport or multifunction chips from National or
other suppliers (generally in a dense package soldered to the board, not a 40 pin DIP). Mostly, don't worry
about it unless you encounter a very old 40 pin DIP National ``NS16550'' (no A) chip loose or in an old board,
in which case treat it as a 16450 (no FIFO) rather than a 16550A. − Zhahai Stewart <

Non−intelligent cards usually come in two varieties, one using standard com port addresses and use 4 IRQ's,
and another that's AST FourPort compatible and uses a selectable block of addresses and a single IRQ.
(Addresses and IRQ's are set using setserial.) If you're getting one of these cards, be sure to check which
standard it conforms to, prices are no indication.

13. Network adapters
13.1. Supported
13.1.1. Ethernet
Ethernet adapters vary greatly in performance. In general the newer the design the better. Some very old cards
like the 3Com 3c501 are only useful because they can be found in junk heaps for $5 a time. Be careful with
clones, not all are good clones and bad clones often cause erratic lockups under Linux. Read the Ethernet
HOWTO for detailed descriptions of various cards.
For ethernet cards with the DECchip DC21x4x family the "Tulip" driver is available. More information on
this driver can be found at Donald Becker's site.

15. Hard drives
All hard drives should work if the controller is supported.
Users of large Western Digital IDE hard drives (40GB up to 200GB at least) manufactured before
2003−03−25 should look at this FAQ for an update that fixes a serious bug in those drives.
(From the SCSI HOWTO) All direct access SCSI devices with a block size of 256, 512, or 1024 bytes should
work. Other block sizes will not work (Note that this can often be fixed by changing the block and/or sector
sizes using the MODE SELECT SCSI command).
Large IDE (EIDE) drives work fine with newer kernels. The boot partition must lie in the first 1024 cylinders
due to PC BIOS limitations.
Some Conner CFP1060S drives may have problems with Linux and ext2fs. The symptoms are inode errors
during e2fsck and corrupt file systems. Conner has released a firmware upgrade to fix this problem, contact
Conner at 1−800−4CONNER (US) or +44−1294−315333 (Europe). Have the microcode version (found on
the drive label, 9WA1.6x) handy when you call.
Many Maxtor and Western Digital IDE drives are reported to not happily co−exist on the same IDE cable
with the other manufacturers drive. Usually one of the drives will fail during operation. Solution is to put
them on different IDE cables.
Certain Micropolis drives have problems with Adaptec and BusLogic cards, contact the drive manufacturers
for firmware upgrades if you suspect problems.
• Multiple device driver (RAID−0, RAID−1) (driver)
15.1. Unsupported
The following hard drives are mentioned as not supported by Linux. Read the bug report available.
• NEC D3817, D3825, D3827, D3847 "These drives are slightly non−SCSI−2 compliant in the values
reported in Mode Sense Page 3. In Mode Sense Page 3 all NEC D38x7 drives report their sector size
as zero. The NEC drives are the first brand of drive we have ever encountered that reported the sector
size as zero. Unfortunately, that field in Mode Sense Page 3 is not modifiable and there is no way to
update the firmware on the D38x7 drives to correct this problem." Problems are mentioned for D3825
and D3827 (both revision 0407). Revision 0410 of these two hard drives seems to solve this problem.

Linux Hardware Compatibility HOWTO
17.3. Notes
All CD−ROM drives should work similarly for reading data. There are various compatibility problems with
audio CD playing utilities. (Especially with newer low−end NEC drives.) Some alpha drivers may not have
audio support yet.
Early (single speed) NEC CD−ROM drives may have trouble with currently available SCSI controllers.
PhotoCD (XA) is supported. The hpcdtoppm program by Hadmut Danisch converts PhotoCD files to the
portable pixmap format. The program can be obtained from here or as part of the PBM utilities.
Also, reading video CD is supported in kernel series 2.1.3x and later. A patch is available for kernel 2.0.30.
Finally, most IDE CD−ROM Changers are supported.

20. Removable drives
All SCSI drives should work if the controller is supported, including optical (MO), WORM, floptical,
Bernoulli, Zip, Jaz, SyQuest, PD, and others.
• Panasonic MO (combines a CD−ROM drive and an optical removable disk). You have to set a switch
when configuring the kernel to get both part work at the same time.
• Parallel port Zip drives here
• Parallel port Avatar Shark−250 here
Removable drives work like hard disks and floppies, just fdisk / mkfs and mount the disks. Linux provides
drive locking if your drives support it. mtools can also be used if the disks are in MS−DOS format.
CD−R drives require special software to work. Read the CD−R Mini−HOWTO.
Linux supports both 512 and 1024 bytes/sector disks. Starting with kernel 2.1.32 Linux also supports 2048
bytes/sector. A patch to kernel 2.0.30 is available at here.
The 2048 bytes/sector support is needed for
• Fujitsu magneto−optical disk drives M2513
Starting with pre−patch−2.0.31−3 IDE/ATAPI internal Zip drives, flopticals and PD's are supported.
• LS−120 floptical
• PD−CD

21.2. Alpha, Beta drivers
• Sejin J−mouse here
21.3. Notes
Touchpad devices like Alps Glidepoint also work, so long they're compatible with another mouse protocol.
Newer Logitech mice (except the Mouseman) use the Microsoft protocol and all three buttons do work.
Eventhough Microsoft's mice have only two buttons, the protocol allows three buttons.
The mouse port on the ATI Graphics Ultra and Ultra Pro use the Logitech busmouse protocol. (See the
Busmouse HOWTO for details.)

22. Modems
All external modems connected via a RS−232 serial port should work. This includes external ISDN adapters,
although some of the extended features of external ISDN adapaters (such as multilink) may or may not work.
Internal modems are another story, however. There are many so−called "winmodems" available now. In fact,
it seems that most PCI modems are winmodems. Some of them do have drivers for Linux now, but many of
the drivers are often binary−only. (See the note on binary−only drivers.) See Linmodems.org for more
information on Linux−supported winmodems.
Note that there are external USB winmodems on the market now, so be very careful when shopping for
external modems.
Furthermore, many flash upgradable modems only have flash programs for Win95/NT. These modems cannot
be upgraded under Linux.
A small number of modems come with DOS software that downloads the control program at runtime. These
can normally be used by loading the program under DOS and doing a warm boot. Such modems are probably
best avoided as you won't be able to use them with non PC hardware in the future.
Most 16−bit PCMCIA modems should work with the PCMCIA drivers. CardBus modems are usually
winmodems much like PCI modems. Your best bet for now is to find a card that lists compatibility with DOS
and Windows 3.1.
All that said, if a modem is known to have a real UART (or hardware UART emulation), whether it is ISA,
PCMCIA, etc., it should work under Linux.
Fax modems need appropriated fax software to operate. Also be sure that the fax part of the modem supports
Class 2 or Class 2.0. It seems to be generally true for any fax software on unix that support for Class 1.0 is not
available.
An exception to this is the Linux efax program which supports both Class 1 and Class 2 fax modems. In some
cases there can be a few (minor) technical problems with Class 1 modems. If you have a choice it is
recommend to get a Class 2 modem.
See Appendix B Linux Incompatible Hardware for specific cards known not to work with Linux.
The following are other good resources for finding Linux−compatible modems:
• Rob Clark's "Winmodems are not modems" page
• Andrew Comech's "PCI modems and Linux" page
• Andrew Comech's "Cheap /Linux/ Box" section on modems

25. USB
USB is supported in all 2.4.x kernels, as well as 2.2.18 and higher. The kernel driver supports both the
Universal Host Controller Interface (UHCI, used by Intel and Via motherboard chipsets) and the Open Host
Controller Interface (OHCI, used by Compaq, Apple, SiS, OPTi, Lucent and ALi chipsets).
For more information, see linux−usb.org.

27. PCMCIA/Cardbus cards
The following is quoted directly from SUPPORTED.CARDS distributed with David Hinds's PCMCIA
package.
Linux PCMCIA Supported Device List
Last updated: 2004/10/27 05:22:16
The following cards are known to work in at least one actual system.
Other cards may also work −− if you can get a card to work that is not
on this list, please let me know. This list is complete to the best
of my knowledge.
CardBus cards are listed towards the end of each section. All 16−bit
PCMCIA drivers have names ending in "_cs". CardBus drivers included
in the pcmcia−cs package have names ending in "_cb"; for the kernel
PCMCIA subsystem, the drivers for these cards are regular PCI drivers.
Beware that some cards have 16−bit and CardBus versions with similar
names, but completely different implementations. If the CardBus
version is not specifically listed as supported here, then you should
not expect it to work.
Next to each driver, I've tried to indicate which system architectures
(x86,ppc,axp) are known to be supported. This information is likely
to be incomplete, and additions/corrections would be very welcome.

30. Appendix B. Linux incompatible Hardware
Some hardware manufacturers have created devices which are compatible with MS−DOS and Windows 95/98
only. They seem to emulate part of the normally available hardware in the devices by software packages sold
together with the device. Specification on these devices are not presented to the world so it is almost
impossible to write drivers for these devices. Below a list of devices reported as being Linux incompatible
will be given.
Simply put, it is best to avoid hardware which states things like "Needs Windows" or "Windows only".

ATAPI
AT Attachment Packet Interface. A new protocol for controlling mass storage devices similar to SCSI
protocols. It builds on the ATA (AT Attachment) interface, the official ANSI Standard name for the
IDE interface developed for hard disk drives. ATAPI is commonly used for hard disks, CD−ROM
drives, tape drives, and other devices.

RAID
Redudant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks. The basic idea of RAID is to combine multiple small,
inexpensive disk drives into an array of disk drives which yields performance exceeding that of a
single large expensive drive. There are five types of redundant array Architectures; RAID−1 through
RAID−5. A non−redudant array of disk drives is referred to as RAID−0. Some RAID systems can
mix formats. (more info)
PPA
Printing Performance Architecture. Protocol developed by Hewlett Packard for their series of Deskjet
printers. In essence, the protocol moves the low−level processing of the data to the host computer
rather than the printer. This allows for a low−cost printer with a small amount of memory and
computing power and a flexible driver. However, this comes at the price of compatibility. HP's
