comp.os.linux.hardware - Description: "Hardware compatibility with the Linux operating system". Search the Usenet archiv of the Newsgroup comp.os.linux.hardware for helpful information with hardware problems and drivers. And at least if you can not find a solution there in the archiv, I recommend to post your question yourself with your favored newsreader.
de.comp.os.unix.linux.hardware - Diese Usenet/News Gruppe dient der Diskussion von Fragen zur Kompatibilitaet und Einbindung gewisser Hardwarekomponenten in eine Linux-Installation auf den verschiedenen Rechnerplattformen, fuer die Linux verfuegbar ist. Das Usenet ist wohl die Anlaufstelle bei speziellen Fragen zu Hardware mit Linux, wenn in den Weiten des WWW bisher keine Loesung gefunden werden konnte.

Linux Device Drivers, 2nd Edition - is an online book (part of "O'Reilly's Open Books Project") written by Alessandro Rubini & Jonathan Corbet. "This book will teach you how to write your own drivers and how to hack around in related parts of the kernel. [...] This book cannot teach you about your device, but it will give you a handle on the background you need to make your device work".
Linux-Geraetetreiber, 2. Auflage - deutschsprachige Version des Online Buches von Alessandro Rubini & Jonathan Corbet. "Oberflaechlich betrachtet ist dieses Buch ein Buch ueber das Schreiben von Geraetetreibern fuer Linux-Systeme. [...] Aber in diesem Buch geht es auch darum, wie der Linux-Kernel arbeitet und wie Sie sich das fuer Ihre Beduerfnisse und Interessen zunutze machen koennen".
Linux Device Drivers Demystified - This section tries to provide help on what devices are in the kernel and how to find out more about them.
Debian GNU/Linux device driver check page - This database verifies the PCI devices at this time (X drivers, ISA, USB, IEEE1394 or any other devices are out of its focus). Paste your result of 'lspci -n' taken from GNU/Linux OS (such as Debian, Knoppix, RedHat, and so on) to the box, then push 'Check' button.
VIA's Linux User Guides - offers documentations about drivers installation for the VIA Chipsets.
Linux nForce Driver - This page contains drivers and documentation for the nForce chipset. The chipset includes hardware support for IDE disk control, Ethernet networking, audio support, win modem support, and a USB controller. These packages have support for Ethernet networking and basic ACI audio. USB and IDE hardware will work with standard Linux drivers. There is no win modem support.
MUSCLE: Movement for the Use of Smart Cards in a Linux Environment - provides smart card and cryptographic support. You'll find here applications, middleware and drivers to support a varity of smart card devices.
The Linux Wacom Project - manages the drivers, libraries, and documentation for configuring and running Wacom tablets under the Linux operating system. It contains diagnostic applications as well as updated kernel drivers and XFree86/Xorg XInput drivers.
APC UPS Daemon - Apcupsd can be used for power mangement and controlling most of APC's UPS models on Unix and Windows machines. Apcupsd works with most of APC's Smart-UPS models as well as most simple signalling models such a Back-UPS, and BackUPS-Office. During a power failure, apcupsd will inform the users about the power failure and that a shutdown may occur. If power is not restored, a system shutdown will follow when the battery is exhausted, a timeout (seconds) expires, or runtime expires based on internal APC calculations determined by power consumption rates.
Dandelion Digital's Linux DAC960 Page - Dandelion Digital's Linux DAC960 PCI raid controllers drivers. This version of the driver includes support for all the current Mylex PCI RAID controllers, including the eXtremeRAID 2000, eXtremeRAID 3000, AcceleRAID 352, AcceleRAID 170, and AcceleRAID 160, which have an entirely new firmware interface, as well as the older eXtremeRAID 1100 (DAC1164P), the AcceleRAID 150/200/250, and the DAC960PJ/PG/PU/PD/PL models. In addition, this release provides support for older DAC960PU/PD/PL/P models with firmware version 2.73. The driver release itself comprises source code and documentation only.
Promise - here you will find the latest software and documentation for your Promise product.
BlueFritz! - (not only) Linux drivers for AVM's BlueFritz! products.
Bluetooth-alsa - Bluetooth audio for Linux. This project aims to make bluetooth headsets of all types work well with Linux computers, from a standard desktop to a limited embedded device. The most common use of bluetooth audio is to make a wireless connection to a cellphone. The advanced audio distribution profile, A2DP, provides the basis for high-fidelity audio.
OpenSync - is a PIM (Personal Information Management) data synchronization framework that consists of several plug-ins that can be used to connect to different devices and systems.
TCPA Device Driver for Linux - IBM's Global Security Analysis Lab (GSAL) has done extensive analysis of the Trusted Computing Platform Alliance (TCPA) chip available on some IBM systems. They have the chip running under Linux, and have studied it extensively. In order to clarify a lot of misunderstanding about the chip, they are making available some helpful white papers and open source device drivers for Linux, so that interested people can test and use the chip in an open environment.
WinDriver PCI for Linux - automates and simplifies the development of user mode Linux device drivers for PCI / CardBus / ISA / PMC / PCI-X and CompactPCI. No OS internals knowledge or kernel level programming required.
FCC ID Search - Nearly every piece of computer equipment has a FCC ID number, usually on the circuit board. If you are unable to determine the manufacture of a card then the FCC database will be able to help.
NTFS-3G Read/Write Driver - is a stable, read/write NTFS driver for Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenSolaris, QNX, Haiku, and other commercial operating systems. It provides safe handling of the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 NTFS file systems.
