Hardware scanning command?


Is there any Linux command to perform hardware scans? (like HPUX's ioscan)

Thanks,

Xavi

Re: Hardware scanning command?


For display info about installed hardware use command lsdev
,or procinfo -s (try man procinfo first)

If the question is scanning hardware like Plug n Play in Windows, I think every distributions have their own program, like HardDrake in Mandrake, etc.

c'mon man, give me some points .. :-)

There is a great little perl script available from:

ftp://ftp.sgi.com/sgi/linux

called hinv.pl which parses the output from the /proc filesystem and other sources to give you a comprehensive listing of the hardward on you system.
