Re: What command tells you most about your hardware?

What command tells me most about my hardware?

I have tried these:

	# discover
(couldn't figure out how to get it to tell my anything)

	# hw-detect
(couldn't find this packaged)

	# hwdetect
(couldn't find this packaged either)

	# lspci

	# uname -a

I like those last two. They tell me a fair amount. However, I had a package installed once that even told me I had a Coppermine CPU but I cannot remember what the package was nor the command now.

I would like to be able to see as much as I can about my hardware from within the command line environment.

What command would you use to display details about your hardware - cpu, ram, drives, etc?

I know my BIOs tells me some of this. I am looking for a command line tool.
"lshw" is what you're looking for. It's in unstable; I'm not sure about stable and/or testing.
