    Is there a way to view ALL devices connected to the system?


    I mean ALL devices
    It possible in MS Windows via Device Manager how come it's not possible under linux?

    Also if there is such way does it tell which devices lack drivers and which ones have been installed correctly? again this is available with MS Windows

    Thanks in advance

    Install lshw for your distro and run that, usually it comes with a graphical interface also.

    OK so #lspci is to show the PCI attached devices regardless if the driver is installed or not
    lsusb is for the USB ones

    Is that ALL? no other buses? no other types of hardware? and how would I know which device lacks the driver and which one is installed properly?
    Thanks
