provide a LiveCD/USB image to crowd-source a HCL
SUSE manually maintained a Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) but this has disadvantages:
- it covers a limited range of hardware
- parts of it can be outdated or inaccurate
- it is a lot of effort to maintain
On the other hand, people want an easy way to know if their hardware works with the current or next release of openSUSE.
This is why a Live image is proposed that can easily be put to CD or USB-mass-storage and has an easy way (e.g. icon on desktop) to test access to different types of hardware:
This software could then upload the test results to a public online database in anonymous form. This DB could be the smolt DB or something similar in spirit.
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
