Linux command that gives detailed information on your hardware, seen in a LQ members


forum. This might sound silly. I was browsing LQ about a month ago. Somebody on here had a forum showing the output of a really cool linux command. The output of the command showed detailed information on computer hardware. I can't remember the command or whose forum I saw it under. I know it was a 4 letter command, maybe beginning with an "i", and containing "x"? Please help me out if you know. It was a really cool command.

Code:

Lots of options. Type: inxi --help to see them.
