Should Fedora 12 work with my new hardware?
I have been using Fedora 12 for some time on a computer which I used to make Audio Recordings. Everything worked fine - except the Motherboard died. I now have a new Motherboard and I must re-install the OS. If possible, I would like to continue to use Fedora 12 - but when I try to install it rapidly gives me a black screen with no activity apparent.
The new MB is a G41M-VS3 from ASRock. The BIOS is American Megatrends, version P1.60
The reason I would like to stick with Fedora 12 is that the software I use to record is streamer (comes with xawtv) and that likes the ALSA mode of recording. I have tried to use streamer on a later version of Fedora (13), but it could not see the audio device.
Is there anywhere where I can check what hardware different versions support?
