Getting help with EFW Community version

Endian provides several “community driven” solutions to solve any problems you may encounter with the EFW Community Version. This means, the support is free but depends solely on the good will of other people in the Open Source Community to help you.

Message From Endian: “We ask for your understanding that Endian is unable to provide professional support for our free-to-use Community product. We are happy to direct you to a collection of unofficial resources, however, if you require additional real-time and/or professional support you should consider our fully-supported Professional version.”

How to choose the appropriate support

In order to promptly find the solution of your problem, follow these steps:

How to ask

If submitting a question to the mailing list, bear in mind that you are relying on the good-will of other community users and not official Endian staff. They are under no obligation to respond to your request, nor does Endian validate support responses.
As a matter of professional courtesy, please exercise decorum when requesting community-supported assistance. We recommend you supply the following:

  • Describe the issue in detail. (“It does not work” is not a sufficient description)
  • What changes (if any) were made that may have caused the incident?
  • Provide your exact hardware specifications.
  • What steps did you take to troubleshoot the issue on your own?
  • Which version of Endian CE are you running?
  • Any other info you can provide: log files, outputs generated, etc.

Some features described within the reference manual are not available to the free-to-use Community Version. For a full list of the differences click here:
