    hardware info program?


    I wan't to know if there is any good hardware info programs? I know kde comes with its own one but I wan't something more advanced, that will tell me more about my system(mainly motherboard). In the days of windows, I used something called everest but I don't think there's a *nix version of that.

    a commandline-utility called "hwinfo" is worth testing...

    What do you want to know ? As root try lspci -vvv . Or to get temperature information use lm_sensors and a frontend like gkrellm or ksim or so. Your hd temps can be read using hdtemp. hdparm can provide info about disks. Could be those programs are not installed on your system.

    Another way to find temperature is:
    Code:
    cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature

    In SGI IRIX 6.5, you can simply run "hinv -m" in the command line.
