Hello Hardware Addicts community!
I have decided to build my first Linux desktop PC based on AMD APUs. My goal is not to have the latest hardware, but to buy older components (such as a Ryzen 3 3200g) that will have a good “bang for the buck” now and room for upgrading later. I plan to install both Fedora 34 and Ubuntu 21.04 on the system in a dual-boot configuration.
I have started buying my components and began to wonder whether I need to be careful to select a motherboard that has great driver support in Linux. I am leaning towards AMD B450 Mini-ITX. What is the best resource for ensuring that the components (such as the included WiFi and audio) on the motherboard are supported by kernel drivers? What other issues might I encounter with Linux compatibility (e.g. BIOS updates?)
