ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe/Wifi-AP vs ASUS P5E3 Premium /Wifi-AP
I wanna build a new computer and I'm looking for a motherboard. I read the ASUS P5E3 Premium /Wifi-AP and saw that everything works "out of the box" under linux, including the integrated WIFI chipset (right? ^^).
Unfortunaly, this motherboard is way too expensive for me, but I found a cheaper one : ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe/Wifi-AP wich is almost the same motherboard, with a P45 chipset.
I haven't found any linux review for that motherboard, so my question is : is everything working under linux ? I run a Debian testing x64.
Thank you in advance.
Limitied linux options with P5Q3 deluxe/wifi-ap
I have this board with the following setup:
2GBx2 Mushkin DDR3 EM3-10666
I've tried a number of linux flavors. So far, the only one that "just works" is opensuse 11.0 (including 64-bit). I haven't been able to get any version of ubuntu to install (hangs on install - 8.04, 8.10 beta 32 or 64bit). Search p5q3 in ubuntu forums and you'll see many others haven't had luck witn ubuntu. Also, no luck with Fedora 9 or 10 beta. Nat has gotten sidux with significant limitations:
I am not experienced enough to figure out exactly the problem with various builds, but the Marvell chipset is mighty suspicious. Hope that helps.
