I am looking for the scsitools package for fedora. Ubuntu has such a .deb named "scsitools". Specifically I need to find out the vendor, serial number etc. of hard disks connected to a machine.

scsiinfo -i <device> and scsiinfo -s <device> seem to do the task nicely on debian based systems, but I was unable to find a .rpm package.

Where can I find this package, or is there an other way on Fedora to get this information?

oh well, never mind. I just copied the executable from a ubuntu machine to my fedora machine and it "just works". – mawimawi Nov 4 '11 at 14:53

Have a look at sdparm which should be available for all major distributions. Maybe you also find some information in /proc/scsi.
