Detailed Hardware Support

Last update: kernel 2.6.21
This list is under heavy update! Thank you for understanding

In blue, you have the comment of the Team.

The list is updated permanently but do not differenciate the versions (0.9, 0.9.1, 0.9.2, 0.9.3, Debian 3.0) and it takes care of kernel upgrades! This list informs you what the newest kernel can or can't do. At least, when the update is performed

In red, X means that it does not work, or has not yet been tested.
In green, V means that the test was successful (graphics mode).
In orange, V-S means that the test was successful while using the serial console only!

Must be completed! Ordered alphabetically
ClassModelWorkingWidthComments and remark
rp800/rp3440V-S64Tested here! Most of the issues with the newer pa8800-based machines seems to have been fixed now. boot log
A800/A500-6XV-S64SMP seems buggy on that box, probably experiencing some cache flushing troubles. Under work.
800/A500-5XV-S64Tested here! SMP seems to work fine since 2.4.17.
800/A500-44V-S64Should work as A500-5X
800/A400-44V-S64Guy Martin reported successful installation with 2.4.20-pa35. See this dmesg.
B785/B2600V64Tested here! We have installed a complete system on this box, it works well, though it seems that there is a bug with SYM1 SCSI driver. Use SYM2 instead. Thomas Bogendoerfer also said he has an X running on B2600, which we haven't. He explained us later that only VIS-EG graphics are supported in framebuffer. FX cards aren't, and you have just STI_CONSOLE working on these boxes, including B2000 and B1000, so don't expect to see X running there.
786/B2000V64Tested here! It seems to be working now but the SuperIO support needs improvement. See the remark about graphics on B2600.
778/B180LV32Tested here! The framebuffer is working! You have to setup X to use the same resolution as the STI Framebuffer. See this file for details.
C785/C8000X64C8000 suffers most of the PA8800/PA8900 currently under investigation, (see rp3440), so we can't really tell it works. Besides we didn't receive feedback about it yet.
785/C3750V64Randolph Chung sent us this mail, so it works!
785/C3700V64We received confirmation from Brendan Horan that this box works. See this dmesg.
785/C3650V64This box works. See this dmesg.
785/C3600V64Since it's shipped with FX gfx cards which aren't supported (see B2600), you have to replace it with Vis-EG or any other supported gfx card to use the framebuffer.
As usual if you have additional info, please mail us!
785/C3000V64Grant Grundler succeeded in installing it via network. If you want to use the IDE CD-ROM, you will have to use our netinst ISOs.
785/C360V64It is operational. LEDs are working now.
782/C240V64According to this mail Markus Grabert sent us, it is fully functionnal.
See those previous mails for any further info: this mail, and this about 64bit.
782/C200V64Jakob Sandgren reported that PA/Linux ran on this box.
Ryan Bradetich told us that 64-bit kernel is running with 2.4.14 version.
780/C180V64Works fine.

OthersXIt should be working, but we have no feedback about a successful try. So, mail us if it is the case!
E856/E55V-S32Tested here! Cristoph Plattner is back! Look at the several modifications he sent at the mailing list
816/E35V-S32Tested here! We have this box, and thanks to Ryan Bradetich's efforts, we succeeded in booting the kernel. Now we are working on SCSI support (as for all E-class systems). We have to investigate directly onto the hardware since there isn't available documentation for SCSI controller. Stay tuned ! For now, you can use E-class as diskless servers (!). See also this mail for further info.
OthersXIt is not yet supported, but if you have any feedback about a successful try, mail us !
F,G,H,IAllXIt is not yet supported. Sorry :-(
