Most likely it wasn't removed but yet its still going thru the approval process. Once you post it, it allows you to add a review and such but others will not see it and you will not see it after you've logged out until its been approved.

Regards.

No, it was removed.

You were missing a key component to the entry: the information from /sbin/lspci

Normally I mail anyone when I need more information on a device, but you have receiving mail turned off in preferences, so there was no way to get in touch with you.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=144627

Covers most of what is either useful or required for an entry.

Please, please recreate the entry, just make certain its complete, or turn on mailing so I can ask you if something is missing.

Cheers,

Finegan

Jeremy, Mods, in a multiboot scenario were you're using/testing the same hardware across different distributions, what's the position on adding say 2 reviews corresponding to 2 different distros with a single piece of hardware? - is this allowable, and would it be of any use? (just to clarify)

You can add multiple comments to one product (although you can only actually rate it once).

To add a product go to the appropriate category and click the "new product" button.
