Description of problem:
a tool (eg. let me tell it for now "hclquery" ) in conjunction with
fedora/redhat website hcl-database,
tldp hardware list,
(i could not find it at http://tldp.org )
would be great for searching
eas of installation,
and/or for updating a centralized hcl-database
is finding an unknown hardware
"will you search the fedora-hcl-database over the internet ?"
"an updated driver was found / NothingFound"
"will you provide us the output of lspci -vv automatically or later
via email y/N"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. search a compatible hardware and the module before you purchase it
2. you has an unknown hardware for kudzu
3. you will update to fedora core 2 and you do not know that the
fdomain modul is evtl. switched off in the kernel
Actual Results: a lot of manpages, internet, mailinglists, howtos,
an incomplete, not well supported, outdated, ... hcl-database
Expected Results: this infos should be easy to find
Currently, the HCL at http://hardware.redhat.com/hcl/ is for RHEL only.
At the moment, internal to RH resources aren't being targetted at looking at
solving this. Other solutions fromthe community might be accepted, though.
