http://ubuntuforums.org – Does Unbuntu 9.10 support the new Gigabyte ga-p55 series motherboards (particularly the ga-p55-ud3 board). I want to avoid purchasing new hardware only to discover that it does not currently work. (If it does not work now I assume problems will fixed some time in the future.) I can find nothing in the Unbutu hardware compatability/incompatability lists on this web site. On Googling I can find a review which tests an Intel P55 motherboard with Ubuntu (turbo boost did not work with a beta version of 9.10) as well as a separate user report that (Sata2, network, audio, cpu stepping, fan speed works with ga-p55-ud3 / Debian (2.6.30). Has anyone successfully used the ga-p55-ud3 with Ubuntu? Could different BIOS versions be expected to cause problems? (Hardware)
