Compatible Hardware Database
Our hardware database allows you to check the compatibility of your hardware with the Mandriva Linux operating system. The certified hardware has the highest level of compatibility.
Please note that the hardware database is constantly being fed and does not include absolutely all the hardware available nowadays.
Up until now, most Linux drivers have been developed by members of the Linux community. If you do not find your specific hardware device listed in our compatibility list, you may search the web with the keywords "mandriva linux" and the name of your hardware device. If you are sure the hardware device you are looking for is not supported yet under Linux, please contact your hardware vendor and ask them if they provide a driver for Mandriva Linux: if they do not, please request that they develop one.
Please, use the following form to obtain informations about your hardware
The Mandriva Linux Supported Hardware database contains information about hardware devices that have been tested and/or have been reported to function properly with Mandriva Linux. Due to the wide variety of system configurations, Mandriva cannot guarantee that a specific device will work properly on your system.
Additional sources for Mandriva Linux hardware support
All supported hardware are not listed in the Mandriva Linux hardware database. Other sources of informations are available. In particular we recommend the excellent printer database at LinuxPrinting.org.
