U can get all the infor using a tool called MSTM or CSTM

i would prefer to use cstm (u should have root privilises for the same),

cstm> map all
cstm> sel all

save this to a file and u can see all the info..

for the device drivers look at ioscan output.

for more info man ioscan

hi Veena,

Its the same as cstm, but tell me why do u need this info ??

i dont think that will have any info on monitor, it just have drivers installed,

and u can try ioscan output to see what drivers are installed for that.

use command "print_manifest" to get the information about the system
