Review of Linux Compatibility

The Acer Aspire E1571 has a Acer CineCrystal TFT HD display with LED backlight and 1366 x 768 pixel and a Intel HD 3000 graphic chipset. The laptop is supported by Ubuntu 12.10 (Linux kernel version 3.5.0-17-generic i686).

The integrated Matshita DVD-RAM drive is recognized automatically by the Linux kernel:

csi 2:0:0:0: >CD-ROM            MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ8B0AW  1.00 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/24x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
cdrom: Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
sr 2:0:0:0: >Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
sr 2:0:0:0: >Attached scsi generic sg1 type 5

The Aspire E1571 provides a Gigabit Ethernet based on the Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM57785 chipset. This chipset is accessed by the kernel module tg3:

tg3 0000:02:00.0: >eth0: Tigon3 [partno(BCM57785) rev 57785100] (PCI Express) MAC address 01:12:23:33:44:55

The included HD Webcam has the USB-ID 1bcf:2c18 and is recognized as “Sunplus Innovation”:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 1bcf:2c18 Sunplus Innovation

It is fully supported by the uvcvideo kernel module:
