Default Please have a look at our knowledge database before posting
Most answers are already solved and explained on this forum, or explained in the handbook. Please have a look before posting. Also, you can have a look at the Wiki to learn more about PC-BSD (and for a link to the online version of the handbook). Don't forget to search on the forum to see if no one already answered a similar problem.

If you still can't solve your problem, feel free to post it here and we'll happily try to help you :wink:

Hi All,
The Knowledge Base especially (Motherboard)Hardware Compatibility is
way Out of Date. ?

If there is a "specific" link to a full list of compatible PC-hardware -I couldn't find it ?.
And if not, Can we please have a link right on the http://www.pcbsd.org site that lists ALL compatible hardware such as PC-Motherboards, ...,and Manufacturer desktops' (Dell, Gateway,...) that work.
Or, just update/add to the existing one.

I think the Knowledge Base, under "Hardware Compatability", still lists the same two Motherboards (from like 2 years ago ! , the Asus A8V Deluxe , and ?

We need to expand this list and let USER's out there put up the ones that work, exmaple, the MB's that work right-out-of-the-box, or if not then what they did to fix it,...?

Suggestion:
-for example, Sun, has a nice web-based (Open)Solaris-x86/amd64 Hardware compatability list site, in which the user can simply submit their compatible product(s) list, and "dmesg" output attachments.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

anyway, I'd like to start, and I'm quite impressed with the fact that "everything" worked for me "stable-right-out-of-the-box" installing:

PCBSD DaVinci 1.4

Hardware Specs:
-Asus M2N-E mobo / AMD 64-X2 4600+ (AM2) CPU.
(with NVIDIA nForce MCP55/570 Ultra AMD chipsets, Lan, audio, ... all worked).
-NVIDIA 8800-GTS 320Meg GPU card.
(KDE was never faster! using latest included nvidia drivers.
-Acer AL2216W 22" LCD (1680x1050x32)
-Audio (HDA Codec: Analog Devices AD1988B).
(1) PATA/IDE PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-112D /w firmware 1.22.
(1) SATA Seagate 320Gig Sata in ahci (non-raid) mode.

Note: (NON-RAID mode only) -I havent tried it with "Raided" drives yet. anybody got Raid goin'?

------------------------------------------------------------------

Cons ?: crappy Kaffeine "crashing" now and then when watching DVD's -really annoying.

Pros ?: Kmplayer (or installing the latest Mplayer ports) much better for watching movies,...

------------------------------------------------------------------

http://faqs.pcbsd.org/index.php?action= ... artlang=en
http://faqs.pcbsd.org/index.php?action= ... artlang=en

...on the knowledge base and they're covered in spam (comments section)

as I go on I keep finding more...

a mod should look at that... dunno if there's a way to stop it

Sorry... just thought i'd let you know...

I think you had best contact Kris Moore and have him poke the care taker (if there is one) to deal with it, some of those are getting pretty rank! (and I don't have nose plugs)
