     31== Kernel Support ==
     32We aim to provide the following in our default kernel configurations used for our Yocto BSP:
     33 * up-to-date Wireless drivers via linux-backports
     34  * commonly used 802.11ac / 802.11n / 802.11a/b/g Qualcomm / Atheros chip based cards
     35  * commonly used USB based wireless devices
     36  * commonly used USB based bluetooth host controllers
     37 * on-board embedded peripherals (ie i2c and spi based peripherals used on our boards)
     38 * Gateworks expansion peripherals
     39
     40In other words we specifically do not typically include support for PCI sound-cards, PCI video-capture cards, and a full suite of USB based peripherals. We try to include support for peripherals commonly used with our boards.
     41
     42If you have a particular add-on card (PCI or USB) that you are using with our boards and have a stable open-source driver for it feel free to contact support@gateworks.com to ask if we can add it in our standard board-support packages.
