What Hardware Do You Need Drivers For?
If you are looking for linux drivers there is an alphabetical list of hardware manufacturers below. When you reply to this thread please reply with:
That's it. Your signature is permissible on the reply. An Email will periodically be sent to the driver development staff of each company listed, requesting linux drivers be written for certain hardware. If your hardware is manufactured by a company not on the list below, reply as indicated above, and the manufacturer of your hardware will be added to the list. This is what's good for the linux community. If this thread gets enough responses it will carry some weight against Microsoft Corporation, which richly rewards hardware manufacturers if they can prevent linux users from using their products.

I am new to the Internet and the Open Source Community and I'm "playing" with Breezy, Dapper, Edgy and recently, KDE 3.5. I have no particular problems at the moment, but I have bookmarked your page for future reference and if I see anyone that might benefit from it, I'll pass it on. Many thanks!
You signature is a commendable religious statement. However, I feel there is one more consideration: We are a creation of the Ineffable Infinity, we are not "Sons" and there is no "Father" to hold our hand. Without this terrifying realization, we can only be lost in science and religion, with the higher questions left to people who can face the monumental predicament of our reality. :-)
It's not man's place to ponder why some hardware works and why some doesn't. It's just the will of god. If you really needed to use any of that stuff "he" would have provided for it. So be content with what you have that works and pray for divine intervention to fix everything else.
When time ends computers won't matter anyway. I'm personally really looking forward to Armagedon.
Been trying to find drivers for this modem for like 2 hours. I'm guessing that since it's a software modem, I won't have much luck, but eitherway...
FM56-SVV Soft PCI Modem
If you need more info then ask.
Not to sound discouraging, but while I think the general idea behind it is good, I also think that if the only outcome of the effort is to send an Email (containing a link to this thread) to a generic Email address at each company, it almost certainly will be ignored.
I changed the thread a little.
Fix your profile.
I suppose next you'll tell me that your "father" gave birth to you as well? :-)
I'd like to meet these Son's of God. I'm gonna go google them!
AwesomeMachine -- after further consideration I need to ask that you make a few more edits to your thread, namely to remove any references to LQ.org. The basic conflict here is simply that unless you have been explicitly granted permission to use the LQ.org name in association with this project, it not appropriate to promote it as something that has LQ.org's official endorsement.
Just to be clear, no one is saying you can't or shouldn't pursue this project, but only that you must clarify that is is your own personal project rather than something that has the formal backing and approval of the owners of this site. The same would apply to any Emails you plan to send out -- any descriptions of the project must make it clear that it is a personal effort rather than an official, LQ.org-sponsored project.
Unfortunately the difficulty here is that it would cross a line for an individual LQ'er to promote or describe his/her own personal project under the banner of LQ.org, simply on the basis of being a registered member. (If you wish to seek permission to use the LQ.org name, please contact the site admin, but IMHO I'm doubtful that LQ.org currently has the resources to support this and thus the request likely would be refused.) If you have any questions whatsoever about this, please feel free to contact me, any other mod, or the site admin. Regardless, please edit your thread today; any references that remain by the end of the day will be removed. Thanks for your cooperation
Edit: OP has been slightly modified
Thanks for that! Eerrrm......and as I'm just a Novice, could you please tell me what "IMHO" means?
In My Humble Opinion
I thought it meant 'In My Honest Opinion', but whatever :P
Either Honest or Humble will do the trick. Thanks for that! :-)
