This is a question on finding the instance of a device, which is installed and operational on my system, for example to find the network interfaces on a multi-ported network card:
Under Solaris I would use /etc/path_to_inst, to obtain such information. Under Suse is the answer located in /proc/?
Q1. What is Suse alternative?
Under Solaris I can also use /usr/sbin/prtconf –v, I know under Suse you maybe able to use hwinfo;
Q2. Is there any other alternatives?
Many thanks in advance for your help, in clarifying this matter for me
