Most of time, you don't need to install drivers in Linux manually, since it already has it installed. But there must be some times when Linux does not have the right driver for a device. How can I find out which device needs to have a driver installed manually?
In Linux, is there some mechanism which, like on Windows, works to make the device function in a compatible mode? If so, how can I know which device works all right, and which device works in a compatible mode?
