How can I find out my system specs?


Just installed Fedora Core 2 recently, just wondering the best way to find out system specs for the laptop I have it on?

Is there a nice command line function?

at the terminal,

#cat /proc/cpuinfo

#dmesg | more

or you can do this

#lspci > /home/username/specs
(specs would be a text file generated which will show you the output of lspci. You can put it wherever you want, I just put it in /home/username)

#cat /proc/cpuinfo >> /home/username/specs
">>" will append the file specs i.e. add to the existing content.

#dmesg >> /home/username/specs

and you'll have a file specs in your home folder with all the specs.

If anyone knows anymore commands for system info...please share.

Thanks, Tux
