Check operability of computer hardware and find drivers

A tool to check operability of computer hardware and upload result to the Linux hardware database.

Probe — is a snapshot of your computer hardware state and logs. The tool checks operability of devices by analysis of logs and returns a permanent url to view the probe of the computer.

The probes are intended to simplify collecting of logs necessary for investigating hardware related problems. Just run one simple command to check hardware and collect all the system logs at once:

 sudo hw-probe -all -upload

If some of your computer devices doesn't work due to a missed driver then the tool will suggest a proper Linux kernel version according to the LKDDb or third-party drivers.

Enable "Access to disk block devices" in Permissions in order to check SMART attributes of your drives. Private info is not collected. See privacy notes: https://github.com/linuxhw/hw-probe#privacy.
