hwinfo – hardware information tool

hwinfo is used to probe for the hardware present in the system. It can be used to generate a system overview log which can be later used for support.

hwinfo/libhd are used to probe for the hardware present in the system.

This project provides a hardware probing library libhd.so and a command line tool hwinfo using it. A major project using this library is YaST, the SUSE installation tool.

hwprobe can hold a comma-separated list of probing flags preceded by ‘+’ or ‘-‘ to be turned on or off.
