Re: Does Samsung support Linux?
Does Samsung support Linux?
Yes, not specifically on this product but they contribute kernel code.
Did Samsung write the Linux driver that crashes?
The code used to compile the module came from Samsung.
And naturally Samsung had the massive vision to write code into this module for a product it probably never even knew it was going to build at the time, or even that it had Linux visions for.
But given they contribute code to the Linux Kernel to make it work with their laptops, perhaps they should of done so to test it?
Newsflash: Contributing to the kernel != automatic, full support for all Linux builds on all products.
If this happened with when installing Windows XP on the laptop, because XP contained an old Samsung driver that broke the UEFI firmware would you be blaming Microsoft or Samsung?
Neither. XP isn't supported either, from what I understand.
At the end of the day...regardless of what Samsung does on the Linux front, if it says LINUX is not supported on this hardware (or alternatively *only* OS xxxx is), then the risk is entirely yours.
