Detailed hardware listing like windows


Detailed hardware listing like windows

Postby g_ramesh on Mon Sep 20, 2010 11:24 am
Hi

we are using RHEL 3.4.6-3 ( RHEL ES Release 4 Nahant update), kernel version - 2.6.9-55.ELsmp. What is ELsmp means?

In windows we can go to device manager and view what all are installed (see attached thumbnail)
In the above linux machine please tell me some program where I can do the same thing to know the hardware installed.

I tried lspci -vb, dmidecode, and seen some files in /proc directory, lshw etc, but none of them gave me a satisfactory answer.
Is there any other way?

There are frontends to these tools, just right now I remember this:

http://hardinfo.berlios.de/Screenshots

But there's really nothing more complete than the tools you listed (well, you forgot lshw, which is a nice little tool). All the hardware info is there really, you might find better or worse GUI frontends, but everything is already there.

hardinfo is a nice frontend,it just collects information of h/ws from /proc.

But why it makes my machine hang while clicking in benchmark section ?

thanks for you reply.
I have already quoted lshw it is after /proc directory.

I will try hardinfo and see.
