    Detecting all PCI devices?


    Is there a way of detecting all PCI devices on a system? As in, if I have a PCI device in my system, no matter whether it works with Linux or not, can I detect it?

    The thing is that I have this old-ish computer with an M1521 chipset. I'm trying to get a via-rhine PCI NIC working in it. It was detected no problem under Win95, and as far as I can tell, the M1521 chipset is supported under Linux, however, I can't get it to work thus far.

    I installed Debian Woody with the standard kernel and then upgraded to Sid, so I haven't tried a custom kernel yet. Since it was a net-install that I did under another computer, I haven't got around to trying a custom kernel yet.

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    cat /proc/pci should give you some information.

    See what that gives you.
