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.

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

 sudo -E hw-probe -all -upload

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

By creating a probe, you contribute to the HDD/SSD desktop-class reliability study: https://github.com/linuxhw/SMART
