Linux Hardware Database

  While cleaning out some old papers, I came across a brief email from congratulating me on registering at the Linux Hardware Database. The email was dated July 4, 1999. Upon checking, the LHD is still active and anonymous reports of your  computer hardware can be accomplished by installing the hw-probe script and running it as root, $ sudo urpmi hw-probe $ sudo -E hw-probe -all -upload This will generate the report and transmit the info to the LHD. Very simple. Very cool. For all the potential options, open  /usr/bin/hw-probe  in a text editor. RESOURCES Linux Hardware Database
