Identify video card from command line?


A quick question: is there a Solaris command that will tell me what video card is in my system? I was thinking I could grep the output of "prtconf -vpPD" for "aty" or something along those lines, but I was hoping for something a little more reliable and easy to read. Thanks in advance to all who respond.

Try:
Code:
/usr/X11/bin/scanpci

Jllagre,

Thanks for the response, but that command doesn't exist on the first system I tried. I probably should have mentioned that we are running SunOS 5.8, not the most recent version of the OS. Do you have any other suggestions?

My best suggestion would be to upgrade ...

There is nothing else than processing prtconf output on Solaris 8.
