[mythtv-users] Linux Drivers For..?

Desktop Linux needs drivers. Right? Of course. So why is Novell's Greg
Kroah-Hartman, a Linux kernel developer and head of the Linux Driver
Project, having to ask people to tell him about devices that need drivers?

It's a good question, and Kroah-Hartman doesn't have the complete answer.
What he does know, as he explained in his blog, is that while the Linux
Driver Project now has "over 300 different developers signed up to help
create and maintain Linux drivers," at the same time he doesn't have
"enough work to keep them busy."


So if you want a specific device that doesn't work on Linux to be properly
supported on Linux, Kroah-Hartman would appreciate it if you would mark up
the project's Drivers Needed wiki page with the details. Or, for that
matter, he encourages you to just e-mail him with your suggestion.
