Tool to retrieve drivers information on Linux?


We have driversquery software in Windows which list all the hardware and storage drivers. I am aware of lsmod and modinfo command but is there any customized tool which on run should display the overall drivers (both storage and hardware) on linux Machine.

I think inxi was Google Summer code project and that works only on Debian.
Am I correct?

Inxi has been developed so that it should work reasonably well on most GNU/Linux distributions. The script comes pre-installed in Mint Linux and AntiX, as well as soon Arch Linux, and hopefully soon more distributions as maintainers / users discover it and find it's a nice tool.

It was developed by h2 (the smxi maintainer) and trash80, from the infobash script that comes with sidux.

Code:
lspci -vv
The output will be long. Here is a sample output of my IDE controller.

Quote:
00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) IDE Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 8a [Master SecP PriP])
Subsystem: Elitegroup Computer Systems Device 2315
Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx-
Status: Cap- 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
Latency: 0
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 18
Region 0: I/O ports at 01f0 [size=8]
Region 1: I/O ports at 03f4 [size=1]
Region 2: I/O ports at 0170 [size=8]
Region 3: I/O ports at 0374 [size=1]
Region 4: I/O ports at f000 [size=16]
Region 5: Memory at 60000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1K]
Kernel driver in use: PIIX_IDE
Kernel modules: ata_piix
I highlighted the kernel info in red and the chipset in blue. You can see what driver and module is being used for that device. Also, you can use this info if you ever wish to compile a linux kernel.

The man page for the lspci command and the others mentioned above have additional options to use.

- Cheers
