Why is it that there are no Hardware Compatibility Lists for Centos?

Postby PhatStudent » 2017/05/27 22:15:07

Centos has been around for a really really long time! Why is it that there are no hardware compatibility lists maintained for it?

What would this look like?

For Example:

Centos 6:

List of network cards tested and certified to work under Centos 6
...
List of graphic cards tested and certified to work under Centos 6
...
List of motherboards tested and certified to work under Centos 6
...

I have been searching for a hardware compatibility list and I can't find one. If there is one where is it?

Well mostly because CentOS is a rebuild of RHEL so if things are listed with RHEL compatibility then they should also work for CentOS too. There did used to be a RH HCL web page but I'm not sure it still exists.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
