Hardware identification system library documentation

hwinfo is the hardware detection tool used in SuSE Linux.

In Debian-Edu (Skolelinux) hwinfo has shown better results than discover when detecting mouse, keyboard and monitor.

hwinfo collects information about the hardware installed on a system. Among others, libhd contains information about cdrom, zip, floppy, disks and partitions, network card, graphics card, monitor, camera, mouse, sound, pppoe, isdn, modem, printer, scanner, bios, cpu, usb, memory and smp.

This package contains the documentation for the libhd13-dev package.
