How to determine my HW by SW


Hi there!

I'd liek to know, if there is a way to determine my Hardware through a programm or some generated configfile or something similar. So, is there a way to get true information about my HW?

Thanks, Greetings, Sascha

lspci -v for the PCI devices.
For more info man lspci
Also under /proc there are useful info about your HW. So you can for example: cat /proc/cpuinfo to find out info about your CPU.
