Unofficial Sun Blade 100 FAQ : Sun Blade 100 hardware questions : Can I use my on the Blade?

0

On the face of it, the Sun Blade 100 has a lot of useful worldly connections, eg. USB and FireWire, PCI. In practice, many devices such as USB scanners, printers, network cards and modems are very unlikely to be supported under Solaris or Linux. Where exceptions exist it is because someone has written a driver, either freely or commercially. Hopefully this situation will improve over time. While it does have a PC-standard PCI bus, you won’t find many PCI devices designed for Intel machines that can be used in the Blade (thanks to OSS supporting Solaris, soundcards are an exception). michael@wells.org.
