Have a computer? Then you can participate in the HCL Week!

July 8th, 2011 by

Aloha openSUSE Users!
Now is an excellent time to help openSUSE! If you have openSUSE running on your system, all you have to do is add your hardware to the openSUSE Hardware compatibility List. Add your pheriphials like printers, scanners and webcams. Or add internal stuff like graphics and sound cards, mother boards, wifi cards and every thing else from your netbooks, notebooks, desktops and workstations!

How does it work?

Go to the hardware portal and add your info in the table in the proper category. We suggest to read the Smolt wiki page to find out how to get details on you hardware.

If anyone is interested in helping out to improve this process, for example by creating a way to transform a smolt url to an entry in the wiki, that would be immensely helpful! Suggestions and offers for help are welcome in this forum thread.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    Hi all.

    anyone got a idea how to fix layout in wiki tables like these:


    With the current layout, it looks really crippled making it quite hard to read.

    We need volunteers to take the smolt information and transfer it to the wiki. A lot has happened in my life in the past 3 years (in particular work is a lot more busy) and I don’t have the time I once had to do this smolt to HCL wiki transfer. Plus the wiki format for openSUSE is MUCH MORE demanding than it was in the past, which means over 2 to 3x as much time needed to create an entry.

    I was not consulted before this news was posted, and I’m sorry to announce I do not have the time anymore to do such a smolt to HCL transfer. Please, can someone else volunteer to do the transfer (smolt to HCL) ?

    openSUSE is in DESPERATE need of a user friendly wiki front end. What is in place now is simply IMHO not viable in the long term.
