    I thought it would be good to ask as I couldn't find a straight answer.

    Ooo.. my name seems to be getting thrown around lately.. Omar^ for one there is a compatibility chart in the form of a "googledocs" spreadsheet off of the main navigation of this forum. Also, please understand that Xiaopan as a distribution has not received active development in years. One of the easiest ways in any linux, somewhat technical if you are uninitiated is to open your file system browser - whether "thunar" , "caja" or any other and locate your system directory "/lib/modules/kernel_version/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/" this will give you a run down of every possible loaded kernel driver / module for your current or possible past installed Linux kernel.

    Also^ usually in general - not always but you can usually go by the kernel version of the distro you may be using. Not all, but a good amount of distro spinners out there do not modify or compiled their kernels so if you check your installed kernel via - "uname - r" there is a good chance that your currently installerd kernel compatibilities will be the same off the kernel devspace.. ie - my print out of that command on my host box is:

    "
    r1sen@mx-r1sen:~
    $ uname -r
    5.8.16-antix.1-amd64-smp
    "

    So there is a good bet that I could visit the antix website and check the specs of their compiled kernel, modules, drives, etc, etc and generally would give me a pretty good answer for any distro spinoff built on top of the same antix kernel.
