Hi, I am new to Linux. I just installed Debian Linux with minimal packages. No GUI, no XWindows, only basic stuff because I want to learn using it. Now, I don't know if all my hardware have been recognized by Debian, and I am sure not all of them have been installed properly. How do I get a list of my hardware along with their "working/not working" status?

Thanks.

Hi,

type the following command to list all pci devices

CODE
lspci


CODE
ifconfig

to see if your network card has an ip.

CODE
route

to see if you have a default route setup

CODE
cat /etc/resolv.conf

to see if the dns entry is there

CODE
ping www.google.com

if works, press CTRL-C to cancel

as for the mobo itself you need no special drivers...
if the network card is recognised, and if you have a sata controller and that is also recognised (you can see the sata drives).

then you are done.

But if you are trying to learn, maybe you should install GUI to get used to the system, use the internet etc...

atleast that way you also have to install Video Card drivers smile.gif atleast you practice editing stuff, expecialy if you have a ATI card.

Sincerely
Robert B
