Is there any document containing information about NetBSD hardware and
software compatibility? I know there are lists of "supported hardware"
for many architectures, but if the support is something like "well, we
have a driver for that thingummy, but last time I tried, the driver
didn't even compile" then it's not worth much.
I've been thinking of writing a WWW page and listing all software and
hardware that _I_ am using under NetBSD on various machines. After
running a piece of hardware or software for several months, I can tell
if they really work or not. I got this idea when I noticed I was
asking about DAT drives and other hardware for NetBSD and I'm certain
there are other people looking for the same information..
Maybe someone who knows the WWW stuff better than me could even write
a cgi program that would allow other people to add information to the
Or, if there already is a list like this - please give me the URL.
Thanks for your time. Comments welcome. Now, how much current can
this I/O pin take....
