Hardware Probe

by Linux Hardware Project

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, uploads anonymized hardware info to the database and returns a permanent url to view the probe of the computer:

flatpak run org.linux_hardware.hw-probe -all -upload

Run as root if you want to check health of all your hard drives.

If some of hardware 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.
