To output a comprehensive listing of all installed hardware on your Linux system, type sudo lshw > hardware.txt. This is good when submitting information to a forum to troubleshoot a problem.

The dmidecode command will also return information about the installed hardware in your Linux system. Find more information about this command here: How to get the CPU speed from the hardware in Linux with the dmidecode command.
