any motherboards especially linux friendly?


I'm looking to build a new computer and I am looking to make it a linux-only box and I thought I would ask here first as to whether there were certain motherboard/processor combinations that work especially well with linux. I have a lot of the other peripherals, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to inquire about those two things before purchasing. Thanks for your input!

We have three Asus boards here which all work
great using Slackware.

Asus P4PE (discontinued)
Asus A7V600-X
Asus A7V8X-X

None of these are Nvidia nForce chipset boards...

You should also check the LinuxQuestions.org HCL

Edit: After reading Tim's post below I edited the above.
I should have said, "None of these are Nvidia nForce chipset
boards..." I originally left out the word "nForce"
Also search the forums to see if users have a lot of problems
with certain boards, such as nForce chipsets...

Nforce chipset MBs are well supported as well. VIA... most MB's really...But I tend to stick to Nvidia or VIA chipsets.

I use an Asus A7V8X, and everything works on it.

Stick with Nvidia and Via like the previous poster said. They both have very good support for their hardware under linux.

Check out the LQ HCL if you have not done so already. It contains a wide variety of ratings and reviews on the entire spectrum of hardware, written by your fellow LQ'ers -- J.W.

Hey, why don't you post back what you chose, and how it works?

And then you can put your own experience and info in the LQ HCL!
