Here's a couple of ideal things I would like to see in LCH...
1. It would be nice to discuss how the drivers were installed into the system.
2. List of existing drivers for the hardware.
3. Links pointing to related hardware
e.g. Motherboards based on a certain VIA chipset or nForce chipset.
The purpose of this idea is so that if the hardware worked on Linux, there's a good chance it would also work on other hardware that are based on similar technologies.
Phoronix LCH has now launched. Many of the mentioned comments in this thread are still being evaulated and worked on, and we will continue to be rolling out new features for some time. Similarly, we have just created a kernel field when posting Linux comments.
Feel free to share Phoronix LCH with your fellow Linux users.
Few other notes... user sessions is still being developed, as well as a MUCH improved interface for searching/browsing the content, password reset/user control panel, There is also an interesting setup coming soon for distributions.
I think having a huge hcl for linux is an excellent idea!
I feel a bit uneasy about the whole interface though. What about multiple revisions of a certain card? If you would look at this hcl for wireless chipsets and look at their complete listing you would see a couple versions of the same card. How would your hcl handle that?
