Linux Hardware Diagnostic Software
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 8, 2008
Anyone out there know of a program I can install in Ubuntu (8.04) that will diagnose/troubleshoot hardware (Namely Hard Drive). I need to see if the drive has bad sectors, read it's smart status, etc. I need to check it's health in general. Any ideas?
looking for hardware diagnostic tools
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 18, 2008
I have a laptop computer which was running windows xp. The system failed earlier in the spring this year. I want to see if i can figure out what went wrong with the system. I can get it to boot up, but windows is trashed.
I am looking for some linux-based tools that would help me to diagnose the system to see if there is some kind of hardware issues or whether it was just windows that was the problem.
My current linux system is fedora 9, and I am hoping to build a fedora livecd with the tools on it so I can boot from the cd and do the diagnostics.
I saw hwinfo on a grml livecd and it gave a lot of good info, but hwinfo doesn't appear to be available for fedora.
hard drive diagnostic tools for linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 2, 2008
I am looking for hard drive diagnostic tools for linux. Any suggestions?
For those interested, I installed ubuntu ubuntu8.04 on an HP DV1000. EVERYTHING WORKS after the install. This is probably because it uses intel graphics (8500 chipset I think). Not sure what the wireless card was, but if anybody is curious I can look it up.
This laptop was a salvage. It had been in a flood, and I didn't expect it to work in the first place. It's been sitting in a closet for almost 6 months, so it had plenty of time to dry out.
So I decided to play with it the other day to see if it was salvagable, and surprise, surprise it was. It had XP home on it, and while it worked, it was very slow, and stuttered when you clicked on the start menu or tried to browse around the hard drive. Also, the only program listed in the start menu was notepad. nothing else.
I decided to format the drive and install ubuntu on it. 30 minutes later, after a complete format and install, it works

Virtual Oracle Linux with Oracle tools on Ubuntu host to IPsec remote database
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 22, 2012
Hello Ubuntu friends,
I need to use Oracle developer tools on my notebook that is running ubuntu 11.10.
Because Oracle tools are not installable under ubuntu without any problems theres is an idea to run Oracle Linux under some virtual partition under ubuntu.
Have you any idea and reccomentdation how to approach to this problem?
With tools I need to connect to remote database over vpn line or IPsec line.
So Oracle SQL*Net protocol should go from oracle linux partition than over host to the internet connection
( VPN or IPsec ).
do not have any experience with ubuntu possibilities for virtualization.
There is also Oracle solution for virtualization Virtual Box , but I am not sure if this is working under ubuntu and if I would gain any advance according to ubuntu partitioning software?
Thank you for any direction, experience and help.
It is the long time goal to set up this architecture so that I can use stable architecture
for work as for home use. So deeply apreciating any hi

hi, a couple of my friends are going to buy new computers - either a desktop or laptop. both will probably buy something Linux compatible if they can get it easily, after my going on about it so much but, it doesn't seem that easy to just buy something you know will run Linux.
what's the easiest way to make sure something you are going to buy will run Linux? are there any good sites, or lists of pre-built desktops which are best to get? if i knew it would work and it was easy, i wouldn't mind putting something together, as i'll probably set them up anyway. BTW, i live in the UK. thanks.

This thread's aim is to provide a single up to date source for hardware compatibility for the Lenovo x121e (in particular the i3 variant) laptop. There are a number of detailed threads around that already cover the generals about the hardware, but don't specifically deal with Ubuntu/Linux support. Please post any updates or revisions and I will keep this initial post up to date

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.

Could there be a "Linux Hardware Configuration wiki"?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 1, 2005
It was something that occured to me a while ago, as a vague "Is this possible?" thought.
Essentially, it boils down to:
There's lots of guides on how to setup just about every piece of hardware going scattered around the Web
Getting a piece of hardware working tends to be a matter of having the right kernel options, software, and configuration files present
If you buy a new piece of hardware, it would be really helpful if you had one big, centralised database that could tell you exactly what changes to make to your kernel, what software you need to download, and what you might need to put into the config file(s)
(Pipe dream) If you could set this database up so software on the user's PC could detect new hardware, access the database, tell you what changes needed to be made, and maybe even make those changes all by itself, you could eliminate a lot of "hardware is so hard to install under Linux" whinges on fourms like this one. Especially if you could figure out
Linux driver infrastructure tools
location: linux.com - date: July 30, 2013
Can anyone uses Linux driver infrastructure tools ?
1. Code checker for Linux ? (I knew "Prefast" for Windows, but I dont know for Linux)
2. Boundary condition Linux driver checker (memory etc) ? (For Windows "Drv verifier")
3. Code Coverage (% code that was executed) for Linux ? (I knew for Windows "Testwell CTC++"
4. Error inject for Linux ? (For Windows "Drv verifier")
Thanks & Regards,
