NetBSD hw compatibility advice
I'm shopping for some new hardware, due to some recent failures of some of
my Jura-epoch x86 hardware. My google-fu has mostly let me down, so I am
turning to this list for some enlightenment. :-)
Shopping for a new i7 box and found some appealing candidate motherboards:
- ASUS P8Z77-V LX (RTL8111E GigE, ALC887 hdaudio)
- ASUS P8Z77-M PRO (RTL8111F Gige, ALC892 hdaudio)
However, I am worried about compatibility of audio, USB2, and notably that
8111F GigE that seems like a blind spot on google, netbsd-wise.
- Any issues with intel Z77 chipsets I should be aware of?
- Googling indicates RTL8111F GigE is a no-go, but RTL8111E is ok?
Also shopping for an el-cheapo personal microserver, which raises the
question of whether the A50M Hudson-M1 chipset (and an AMD E350 cpu) is
supported. The motherboard in question comes with an RTL8111E as well.
It's only intended as a very cheap headless personal webserver with a
RAID1 and GigE and not much more.
Thanks for any help
