Group:Hardware/Directory Migration

From LibrePlanet

Jump to: navigation, search

The FSF Hardware directory is being phased out in favor of http://www.h-node.com/ The old directory was a useful resource, but having it maintained by a single person wasn't the most efficient process. The nice thing about h-node is that it is a community run effort, so you can join in and help. The old directory is not in an easy-to-parse format, and is missing some information that is necessary. If you would like to help with the migration, here is what you can do:

Hardware that needs moving to h-node

video cards

Note: This page is not an exhaustive list. Also, some video cards may work with free software, but without 3D acceleration. This information should be considered very tentative -- we are doing our best to update it.

ATI Cards

ATI Radeon




Hardware That Has Been Moved

All hardware below has been moved to h-node.

printers

HPLIP The HPLIP project provides free software printer drivers for GNU/Linux machines. Here is a list of supported printers. Be careful using this list because a small percentage of these machines require proprietary firmware in addition to the free driver. Any printer with "yes" in the far right column requires a non-free "driver plug-in" and so could not be part of a fully-free system.

You might also find useful information at linuxprinting.org. Note that they list many printers that require nonfree software to work as well (but are compatible with GNU/Linux systems using proprietary drivers), so be careful.

If you have information about printers that work or don't work with free software, please let us know!

We have received reports from some users of gNewSense that they have had success with some of the following printers. Please note, these have not been tested in the FSF offices.

Brother HL-5280DW

Epson R320 Series

C64

CX6600

Hewlett-Packard (HP) HP Deskjet D1460, HP Deskjet F4100, HP Deskjet F2280*, HP DeskJet D4260

An * indicates a multi-function device where all parts of the device except one worked.

Are these two USB devices, and can they be added to h-node?


Cameras

The cameras in this section can not be moved because they are integrated in a notebook, have a non-valid Vendor / Hardware ID or are third party cameras that are not technically peripherals.
