Hardware information on Linux

hardware

More than three years ago I wrote an article about lshw and lshw-gui, a program and a GUI that allow us to "see" inside the computer all the individual components (CPU, RAM, video card, sound card, network card, etc..). The GUI now has changed its name, it is not more than lshw-gui but lshw-gtk. Aside from that, I realize that after more than three years, the article is still current and does not need additions.

Start a program with GUI remotely via SSH

shell

I do not often have to start an application on a remote machine that requires the use of the GUI, more widely in applications to launch and "turn" in background, but it can always happen. I'm thinking for example to those who use a computer as a multimedia station (with XBMC setup is very simple) or even just to experience.

Suffice it to say that you can do, but it is necessary to direct the GUI application to a screen in particular.
