Suppose you want to know the exact hardware that’s installed on your system running Linux. You can use lspci to view a listing of most hardware on your system. There may be some unusual or very old piece of hardware that won’t display, but for the most part lspci will show you what’s there. There are several switches that can be used with it to tailor the display for your particular needs. For more information, use man lspci. If it’s not in your path statement, you can usually find it in /sbin.
