Re: Retrieve hardware and modules info..



thanks guys for this.. Now what is the best way to link modules to a
specific hardware. for example my lsmod shows that I use 'ecb' module.
For someone like me this name does not say much. Is there a way to
find which module belongs to which piece of hardware?

Other than html or xml output, what advantage does lshw have over dmidecode?
I can see one dmidecode advantage over lshw. Current version of lshw
is not able to detect firewire.

Description: information about hardware configuration
 A small tool to provide detailed information on the hardware
 configuration of the machine. It can report exact memory
 configuration, firmware version, mainboard configuration, CPU version
 and speed, cache configuration, bus speed, etc. on DMI-capable x86
 systems, on some PowerPC machines (PowerMac G4 is known to work) and AMD64.
 .
 Information can be output in plain text, HTML or XML.

Other than html or xml output, what advantage does lshw have over dmidecode?
 Both programs are reading the same data structures aren't they?

Not a clue - I've just been in the habit of using lshw (although I
don't use it all that often).  I'll have to look into dmidecode.
