hw-probe

Probe your computer
"This is a project to collect hardware details of Linux-powered computers over the world and help Linux users and developers to collaboratively debug hardware related issues, check for Linux-compatibility and find drivers."
https://linux-hardware.org/


hw-probe, is a nice cli-script. When you have run it:"sudo -E hw-probe -all -upload", it uploads an report to https://linux-hardware.org and gives yo an url of the report. Sensitive information is filtered out.
You can attach to the url and comment your report and submitt it.

Ease support tremendousley.

Unfortunately it is not yet released in buster. If you a'int on Sid or Bullseye, and want to try it, you have to install it in Docker, Snap or Flatpak, or download an appimage.

Re: hw-probe

Be nice if someone with backporting skills to put this into buster-backports if it is possible.

Re: hw-probe

^The core of it seems to be a perl script, so it should be an easy backport.

In fact, the bullseye package should install OK on Buster as-is:
https://packages.debian.org/bullseye/al … e/download
I haven't tried it, but gdebi reports no problems, just asks for a few dependencies to be installed.

Re: hw-probe

@rbh,  This is pretty damn cool!  Worked really well, and gave a wonderful report to check out. Gonna put this in my build as well.

Not in Bunsenlabs at the moment, but these were all that were required on my buster build. Nothing weird. Guessing some of these are already present in Bunsenlabs.

sudo apt install acpica-tools hdparm hwinfo lm-sensors smartmontools usbutils mesa-utils edid-decode

Then the package from here as johnraff listed:
Bullseye-hw-probe-deb-pkg

Then to install:

sudo dpkg -i hw-probe_1.5-1_all.deb

Then to get the report:

sudo -E hw-probe -all -upload

And here are the results. Nifty:)

Installed that package and here's mine as another example:
