Hardware Probe Tool (HW Probe) a tool to probe for hardware, check its operability and upload result to the Linux hardware database: https://linux-hardware.org
Probe is a snapshot of your computer's hardware state and system logs. HW Probe tool returns permanent URL to view the probe of the computer.
Sample probe: https://linux-hardware.org/?probe=b394035f90
Share your probes and logs with Linux developers in order to debug and fix problems on your computer. Simplify inventory of hardware and navigate over the computers in your company.
You can make a probe with the help of a script, Docker image or Linux ISO (see below).
sudo hw-probe -all -upload -id DESC
DESC any description of the probe.
You can easily make a probe on any Linux distribution without installing the tool with the help of the Docker image:
sudo docker run -it \ -v /dev:/dev:ro \ -v /lib/modules:/lib/modules:ro \ -v /etc/os-release:/etc/os-release:ro \ -v /var/log:/var/log:ro \ --privileged --net=host --pid=host \ linuxhw/hw-probe -all -upload -id DESC
You may need to run 'xhost +local:' before docker run to collect X11 info (xrandr, xinput, etc.).
Docker hub repository: https://hub.docker.com/r/linuxhw/hw-probe/
If the tool is not pre-installed in your system or you have troubles with installing the tool or its dependencies (e.g. hwinfo is not available in the repository) then try this Linux ISO with hw-probe installed: https://mirror.yandex.ru/rosa/rosa2016.1/iso/ROSA.Fresh.R10/
Boot this Linux ISO in Live mode on your computer and make a probe (see USAGE).
sudo make install prefix=/usr
If you don't want to install anything to your system, then you can probe your computer by Docker image or Live ISO (see above).
On Debian, Ubuntu, Mint and other Debian-based Linux distributions you can install a PPA package:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mikhailnov/hw-probe sudo apt update sudo apt install hw-probe
See full list of suggested packages in the INSTALL file.
hw-probe -get-group sudo hw-probe -all -upload -id DESC -group ID
Create your probes collection view for offline use:
sudo hw-probe -import DIR
This is a first public release of the tool, that was used internally for testing hardware compatibility of the Linux distributions since 2014.
