    Hardware compatibility with SUSE Linux 10.1


    I'm going to set up a dual-boot system once my current Windows XP installation messes up (it always does), but I'm not sure if all my hardware works with SUSE Linux.

    Mainly my WLAN card: http://www.trust.com/products/product.aspx?artnr=13645

    And my onboard sound which is an Avance AC97 chip.

    Will these work with SUSE Linux 10.1?

    EDIT: I forgot, I also have a Linksys WAG354G Router.

    EDIT2: I found a app called NdisWrapper.
    http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/
    The site says that "With ndiswrapper, virtually every miniPCI (builtin), PCI, PCMCIA (Cardbus only) or USB wireless network card works in Linux."

    With sound, you shouldn't have too many problems. I also have some sort of AC97 card and it worked out of box.

    For the wireless, it depends on which chipset the card uses, check out this thread or this site for more info.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
