Are there any guidelines for hardware compatibility list submissions, such as tools to use, essential information, etc.? Hardware compatibility lists are great but only when the information is sufficiently detailed and accurate. I do not know the process here at LQ because I didn't get far in my attempt to post. The manufacturer was not yet listed. I did submit it (Archos) for inclusion.
For example, I bought an Archos ARCDisk20 (20 GB USB drive) last night based on input at http://qbik.ch
that someone had gotten the thing to work on Linux, although there wasn't much detail, so I was taking a chance (and the salesperson said I could return it if it did not work.) I was going to update qbik.ch with my success story this morning, but the post form wanted hex values for the manufacturer and product. I didn't see any explanation on how/where to get these values, so I did not make a post yet.
Any recommendations on where I might go Read The Friendly Manual on HCL submissions?
