HW compatibility information

This document is written by reporters/contributors which means that the compatibility information is not certified.

How to use

Search (ctrl+f) your PC/device/chipset name, and check the compatibility information

How to report/contribute

Simple way

Refer to compatibility table, and report HW compatibility issue on community.

We would appreciate it if you write the issue in detail by referring to the Compatibility table.

Then other contributors/maintainers would write the issue on this document with your name/ID.

Better way

If you have open source spirit, you can be a contributor.
1) Join Wayne OS project and get Developer role
2) Make a temporary branch (ex: report-hw_compatibility-[date])
3) Add HW compatibility information on docs/release/hw_compatibility_information.md
4) Commit
5) Send a merge request from the temporary branch (ex: report-hw_compatibility-[date]) branch to master branch
6) Remove the temporary branch (optional)

Rules for table

  • Add the newest information on top of the table
  • One row includes one information for a device/OS-version
  • If you don’t agree about the existing information, add another row in table, instead of deleting/modifying the existing information
