Question How do I find information about the hardware?


I used to Red Hat and the common Linux commands, but now I have to deal with a SCO-Unix (Unix Ware 7).
I have to find information about the hardware.

What networkcard is installed?
What graphiccard is installed?
Which SCSI-Adapter and what kind of harddisks?
What software is installed?

Can you help me finding out how to answer these questions?

You can usually get a lot of information from 'dmesg' or by watching the screen during boot-up.
Hopefully someone else can give some more specific SCO info.

I issued dmesg at the console but the command is not found, unfortunately.

Does no one knows about SCO-Unix? Smilie
