The program “lshw-gui” is a simple front-end of lshw, which again adds nothing. Exactly how the package “father” It allows export of the results as text files, XML the HTML and allows control of all devices combined with our computer. With “lshw” everything is under control.
It is present in the repositories of most distributions, and to install it, simply run a:
[root@localhost ~]# yum -y install lshw-gui
if we were to use a Red Hat, or:
[user@localhost ~]$ sudo apt-get install lshw-gtk
for debian and derivatives.
