Get hardware info

Hello. How do I obtain the hardware info? I would like to get my laptop model name etc.

lshw, hwinfo comands are not found.

You can install things via sudo qubes-dom0-update FEDORA_PACKAGE_NAME, but keep in mind that installing additional software in dom0 is not advisable for security reasons. In this specific case, this probably won’t create too much additional attack surface.

You can also get information about your hardware without installing anything (most of those programs are wrappers to the procfs - /proc/*)

Here are a few examples:

  • cat /proc/cpuinfo lists info on your CPU
  • cat /proc/meminfo

Alteratively you can also use dmidecode which comes already on dom0.
