Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 10, 2010
Ive recently purchased a number of newly released Toshiba portege R700-15U business laptops. There was (and still is) very little linux related support information available due to it being a very new model so I have started to document the hardware compatibility under ubunutu 10.04. This is not intended to be a review or discussion of the laptop features, but a collation of compatibility info and fixes for this laptop under linux for owners or those looking to to buy one.
The R705 shares almost all the same components as the R700. It just lacks a number of features (bluetooth? fingerprint reader, express slot?, 5400rpm drive?) present on the R700 so there is no reason why it cant be tracked here also.
Feel free to post updates and I will keep this chart fresh.
Test OS: Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx amd64. Alternate installer, for encrypted LVM setup. Apart from that it was a standard install.
Test Firmware: Initial Release firmware
Works (maybe with a patch or fix)

UbuntuHCL.org: The Ubuntu Linux Hardware Compatibility Database
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 11, 2007
UbuntuHCL.org has been around for about 2 months now. We have seen constant growth, and would like to encourage others to contribute.
Our membership is constantly growing, and we have had 65,690 hits since August 24 (less than 3 months ago).
The site is very user friendly, and honestly in my opinion it beats the official HCL wiki by far. Features include average manufacturere ratings, average product ratings, distribution/version specific reviews, and even allows users to review existing products, or add their own to the database!
We are also looking at getting involved in a startup organization with the purpose of testing and certifying Ubuntu hardware.

Linux Hardware Compatibility website!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 5, 2009
I am testing out my new Linux hardware compatibility website (yet to come up with a name - ideas welcome!) which can be found at
But I want to know what you people want on there. At the moment, it has only very basic features like being able to put in lspci output, what works and what doesn't. I have only put my wireless card in there, so it is a bit empty. At the moment only wireless cards can be put in but I will try and make it so you can put any type of hardware in!
Feel free to test it out and report any problems or feature requests by replying to this post

If this is in the wrong forum, I apologize.
Does anyone know of something like the Belarc Advisor except it will let you know with which versions of linux your hardware is compatible?
I'm currently going with trial and error. I started with distrubutions which ran in the Windows partition (limited success with PhatLinux). I have a desknote a907. I'm considering trying thiz linux, because I heard some versions of the desknote shipped with it.
Anyway, back to the software. I did find something at sourceforge.net, but it looked like it ran in linux.
[SOLVED] Is there a hardware compatibility list published for Ubuntu.
