Each release of Mageia software runs on most i586 and x86_64 computer systems available at the release time.
You can follow this hardware requirements list:
- Processor: enhver AMD-, Intel- eller VIA-processor;
- Hukommelse (RAM): 512 MB minimum, 2 GB anbefalet;
- Storage (HDD or SSD): 5GB for a minimal installation, 20GB for a casual setup; This includes a few GB for user files. If you need more than you should take that in account too. Custom installations on less space are possible but this requires intermediate linux knowledge.
- Bootable USB port or optical drive capable of using media with a storage capacity of at least 4GB used for installation. Smaller media capacity is used for network installation, but a reliable Internet connection is needed. More information at downloads page.

For some kinds of hardware (Wi-Fi chipsets, 3D graphic cards) to work properly, specific firmware or software may be needed, this is available in a specific online repository called "nonfree" (learn more).
We may set up a hardware compatibility list/directory as well as a hardware certification process; but that's still at the planning stage. Feel free to join/contact our Web and QA teams if you would like to help in this regard.
You may check and report bugs on our Bugzilla (bugs.mageia.org).
