Check operability of computer hardware and find drivers

A tool to probe for hardware, check operability and find drivers with the help of Linux Hardware Database.

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

If some of hardware devices does not work due to a missed driver then the tool will suggest a proper Linux kernel version according to the LKDDb or third-party drivers.
