You can obtain cpu and memory info by doing this:
cat /proc/cpuinfo cat /proc/meminfo
But what if you want to have a peek of all hardware you have and its information?
With root privilege,
lshw shows you more hardware details then without.
How about I don’t want too much details but just to have a nice list of all the hardware?
The output will be like this:
H/W path Device Class Description ======================================================== system Inspiron 510m /0 bus 0H1908 /0/0 memory BIOS /0/400 processor Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1.50GHz /0/400/700 memory L1 cache /0/400/701 memory L2 cache /0/1000 memory System Memory
You can filter based on class, for example I want all hardware info regarding to memory.
lshw -class memory
