I have a couple of different programs that I use on windows boxes for getting tall of the hardware information from a computer in a nice easy way. You can also save an html file with all the information so that you can create a catalog of your various system's information (processor, memory, bios, and lots more). Does anyone know of a similar utility that works in Linux?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The Device manager gives a lot of info, but I can't see that you can export it to a file
Code: Select all
cat /proc/*

gives more info than you need
Code: Select all

gives a lot of useful info
Code: Select all
sudo lshw

gives you a nice overview
Code: Select all
sudo biosdecode

The output of the terminal is very easy to copy to a textfile
As you see I don't have a GUI application in the list. If you want to find one try to google
Code: Select all
hardware info linux
