Hardware information


I just installed Fedora 14 and I want to access my hardware info. In Windows I could get system info such as cpu type, speed, stepping, memory, graphics card, etc.


Thanks,
Mike

Download...

You may not have the packages for all these commands and will have to find and download them. I like "lshw" and need to find an RPM for it since it is not in the repository for my version of openSUSE.

Try

Code:
lshw-gui
If the command is not found, then install it using the following command (as root):

Code:
yum install lshw-gui

There is a great little program called "hardinfo" which organizes the information for you and allows you to save reports. In Debian, it serves as the "System Information" tool.

I blogged about it here.
