Leading Linux Kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman is looking for devices not supported by Linux. He would like to add support for more hardware in upcoming Linux releases. He needs help from the Linux community in identifying devices that lack support.

Greg Kroah-Hartman writes in his blog:

"What we need now is more companies participating in the project, we have the developers, but not enough work to keep them busy."

"So how do we change this? I'm thinking that possibly, there really isn't a large number of different devices out there that need Linux support written for them." ...

"So, please, let me know what specific type of device you know of that is not properly supported on Linux."

Links to a wiki and to an e-mail address you can send details about unsupported devices are available on the blog.

Please help out by sending details to the project so Linux can support even more hardware than it does now. If you represent at a company that makes computer periphreals, you can have the Linux team do the support work so your potential market for sales increases without much added expense on your part!
