About laptop hardware

Hi,

How I can check which drivers I need for my laptop.
For example wifi, when I am installing new kernel, I want to know which wifi I have to install everything for it.

Also I want to learn more about Manjaro , don't want to be a full noob, haha..Any recommendation from where to start ?

Thanks

Thanks, I know about wiki, that was my first point after install. Btw, that was first reason why I choose Manjaro :slight_smile:

Most drivers are provided by the kernel. Without knowing what hardware you have, we can't tell you what you might need (if anything).

Please see:

For Manjaro, like @Marte said, and also the tutorials category holds a massive amount of information.

For Linux in general, It's FOSS has a list of free good reads.

Looks like the kernel covers all your hardware, you shouldn't need anything else.
