Review of Linux Compatibility

The Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 is a Micro-ATX Motherboard with AM3+ socket (for Sempron, Phenom II X3, Athlon II X2, Phenom II X2, Athlon II X4, Athlon II X3, Phenom II X4, Phenom II X6, FX). It was successfully tested in configuration

 DMI: System manufacturer System Product Name/M5A78L-M/USB3, BIOS 2101    12/02/2014

under Arch Linux with Linux kernel version 4.5.1-1-ARCH.

The installation from DVD runs smoothly and recognizes all hardware components (the motherboard was tested with a ATI HD 5450 2048MB HyperMemory graphic card).

Ethernet

On-board gigabit ethernet uses the RTL8111/8168B chipset which is supported under Linux bythe kernel module r8169:
