Find Hardware Specs (Details) on your Computer February 18, 2007Posted by Carthik in commands, snippets, ubuntu.
I stumbled upon the nifty “lshw” tool today. lshw lists your hardware. Try it now:
You can get specific details by using the -C flag:
$sudo lshw -C disk
will list all you hard disks.
It create an html page with your hardware details if you do a:
$sudo lshw -html > your-file-name.html
I generated one for my laptop and put it up for future reference. Now I have an answer to the question, “what network adapter do you have, or what wireless driver are you using?”
I know, this is something probably all of you know already. I just found out about this little tool today. I expect this info might be useful for those of you just learning the ropes, like me.
