Now, we must convince Congress to stop the FCC. Can you display an alert?

The hwinfo command for Linux will allow the user to get hardware information from the command line.

Type sudo apt-get install hwinfo to install this command. It will be installed in the /sbin directory and therefore, you will need superuser privileges to execute this command and get the hardware information.

[email protected]:~$ sudo apt-get install hwinfo

This will output a report showing a whole host of hardware information. The amount of information will be quite comprehensive, so redirecting the output to a file will be a good idea.

[email protected]:~$ sudo hwinfo > hardware_report.txt

The amount of hardware information you get is amazing. A massive amount of BIOS info and hardware details. Very good if you are submitting a bug report and information about your computer is required.
