I'm now starting to make a supported hardware list for DFly.

I want you people to supply me with the info of your working
devices, and of course non working devices too.

``Would you please ... ''

Use 'pciconf -lv' and 'dmesg' to gather the info, and please
include the vendor name and device name that is printed
on the box when you bought it.

Sending me nothing more than the output of 'dmesg' and
'pciconf -lv' will not be very useful, I also need a description of
your system at a *higher* level.

Please read the two sentences above one more time.

People who don't understand those last two sentences in the first place aren't likely to read them again.

Additional info is appreciated, for example if it's a notebook, if
the devices are pci cards or mounted direct on the motherboard,
what config files that are used by the device, if any.

Send your e-mails to me directly, and make sure that the
subject line starts with DFHW so my e-mail client can filter it

Only one device per e-mail, please.

Pretty much anything that is supported in FreeBSD will be supported under DragonFly, so the hardware lists are going to be quite similar. Additionally, the source files for various chipsets usually have a generous listing of the products which make use of them. I think an ``unsupported hardware'' list is likely to be more comprehensive in that sense.

Sorry for the fluff above, but your email came across as rather rude at first (and second) glance.
