Alternative to Windows 'Device Manager'
I finally started using Linux at home! And several questions pop up of course. Eg. say my tablet, tv-card, usb hub or whatever isn't working. In Windows you can start by looking for a question mark in device manager (& possibly detect other non-working devices) and list irq conflicts etc. Is there a tool which does exactly the same (sort of) on Linux?
(I'm using fedora 9)
I would start with ls<bus> list the devices on this bus...
for a full list of hardware recognized in the system.
Some distros may have GUIS for this info.. but the command line is soo much better imho.
I use several distros,i use Fedora 9 too but with my hardware the best ones in hardware recognition and compatibility have always been and still are Opensuse and Pclinux 2007 Kde which both have a specific program similar to the Windows Control Panel that lets you do something like what tou asked,then comes Linux Mint..if you can't fix your hardware problems try installing one of this distros
Good luck !
And for GUIs-addicted:
