Hi!

Use LSHW (among others)

I dont know what distro you use, so here goes (what I can remember)

Debian/Ubuntu and derivates : apt-get install lshw
Fedora and derivares : yum install lshw
Arch/Manjaro : pacman -S lshw

(apologies to the others...I dont remember these commands)

Done @ console, or...check the package manager in the Desktop Environment...

Welcome to the forum! Your question answers what we ask when we try to help: "what's your hardware?" - and using LSHW helps others get an image of what an asker is using...

Thanks

Thor

In that case

Quote:
yum install lshw
(or ay of the other suggested things, if they're not already in there) - by the way, of course you'll need to have Root rights:

Quote:
su -
[password]
where the hyphen is part of the entry, that is "su" - space - hyphen...
