GEAR COMPATIBILITY CHART

Although GEAR supports many operating systems in the UNIX / Linux field, it does not support all platforms at all version rungs. Nor does GEAR support ALL funcionality for the platforms it does support as well. Despite this, GEAR's robust support for the UNIX / Linux platforms is the leading software solution for this arena.

Note: (If there is a numeral as opposed to a check mark in the SCSI/IDE/USB/1394 boxes, it refers to the below key)

  1. Due to bug in Solaris USB drivers only a very limited amount of drives will work.
  2. IDESCSI module must be enabled to access IDE devices.
  3. Not all kernels have USB & 1394 support enabled by default.
