please help a noob.....


my question is, is there a command or an way to check your systems hardware specs in linux?

I use the dxdiag command in windows it gets me enough of what i need there, but is there a command or gui app that will show me specs?

thanks for any help

depending on what distro you use, your high level control centre (if there is one) should tell you the same. lower level though we have:

uname -a
cat /proc/cpuinfo
cat /proc/meminfo
free
lspci

and a fair few others

and PLEASE use a decent title next time.. this thread title doesn't mean a thing.
