87
9b00f7ea 88The products listed in this section are known to have some serious problems or not work at all with DragonFly BSD.

b6f85b6d 90* Asus M2N4-SLI: USB is not working on this model
1fa2090a 91
ed451045 92* Highpoint RocketRAID 17xx, 22xx, 23xx and 25xx RAID adapters: there is no driver for these adapters. A FreeBSD driver exists, but it uses a binary blob which causes panics. Highpoint
93has not been cooperative in documenting their hardware so that a proper driver can be written.
