Finding Hardware
 
I was wondering where I could find the names of certain pieces of hardware on my computer without opening the computer itself. In other words, what would be the Linux equivalent to Device Manager on Windows? I'm running Red Hat 7.3. I would like to use the console rather than the GUI (Gnome).

Thanks

Browse the /proc filesystem. less the files in it and you will find many interesting things. For example:
less /proc/pci
gives you a listing of all pci devices conected.

I searched thr proc directory before but never found any hardware names.

Did you simply list the files in that directory, or did you cat the files? When I cat /proc/pci, as given in the above post, I get:

Which should be enough to tell what hardware I have in my system.

also, try these:

dmesg | less

less /etc/sysconfig/hwconf

in most cases, the hardware entries that you'll find are not the ones that you should see on the hardware itself but rather the chipset these devices are built.
