I've installed Fedora 12 on a computer I found in the trash (Bulk garbage day!) and I'm trying to figure out what's under the hood (seems like a stock dell but I'd like to know the details). Is there a way to get a hardware profile on Fedora after it's already installed on the harddrive? I saw an option at install but I skipped over it.

You should be able to use smoltSendProfile -p to get it, but it doesn't seem to be working for me here. You can pass -n instead and go to the Smolt website and put the UUID into the text box to view it.

You should (assuming that the command's the same) be able to just run lspci which should give you all of the information you need.

Smolt gives much more comprehensive results.… – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Apr 7 '10 at 6:08
true. because he's running fedora it's a better option. I'll up-vote your answer. – Kravlin Apr 7 '10 at 6:37
