I don't think there's a program that does all the hardware. Some things are still not supported. Is it a distribution?

I never heard of kurumin or a program that just detects all hardware, sorry. Maybe some extra info is good for other people. Like was it a command line program or a graphic program running in X?

Hello,

I'm not an expert in this area, but I gathered from some readings, that those tools are deprecated now.
Modern hardware detection seems to be done with things such as HAL, DBUS... see http://freedesktop.org/

http://www1.mandrivalinux.com/harddrake/ - Harddrake info - That was a tough one, required some very skilled navigation of google...

http://rhlinux.redhat.com/kudzu/ = Kudzu Info - Proved mildy more difficult, i had to scroll down! seems it's a plant (vine actually) too.

Says Kudzu is used by anaconda, Xconfigurator, and hwbrowser so i imagine you have one of these GUI tools, which distro was it again?
