hello, I am trying to find drivers for various hardware for whichever Linux
distro. I have been searching high and low to find drivers, but all I can
find are either up to date drivers that work fully, half baked drivers that
either require manual installations and tedious configurations or
incompatible in places, or information on the hardware that is something
like 6 years out of date and is confusing. there could be others but you get
all I have found is as follows;
nVidia nForce 570 SLI MCP - this controls the SATA interface and the
Ethernet ports. - I cannot find much on the drivers for this.
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.11.html but may not be most
recent or compatible. Supposedly recent kernels work with it out of the box
according to a couple of websites that I can't find anymore. the SATA is
supposedly handled by the kernel, but because of the nForce 570 controller,
I do not know.
PCIe interface - I haven't a clue on this, but I'm presuming that it's
covered in the kernel.
SoundBlaster Audigy SE - Cannot find drivers for the recent 7.1 card. Can
only find information several years old for the 5.1 card. (5.1 and 7.1 is
the amount of speakers).
Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 - Driver built into the usbhid module. so
Radeon X1950 Pro - Driver from the AMD website. Current Catalyst driver is
Xerox XM3-19w monitor - covered by the graphics drivers.
Linksys WUSB54GC - Cannot find drivers or whether it works in recent Linux
versions. Can only find information that is several years old and very
the DVD drive would certainly be covered in the kernel, not to mention the
floppy disk drive.
