[Grml] grml for hardware inventorying

grml offers the `grml-hwinfo' package, which has various hardware detection options and saves results to a tarball suitable for saving to a drive, transmitting over a network, etc.  Perhaps this will be useful to your friend, with a small persistent live grml system.

Hi. Today I received a mail from a friend asking me if I know any tool

to make hardware inventorying and I remember using one Linux bootable

from floppy that did that but at tis time is too old and obsolete (and

I don't remember its name either :-) ).

So, I was thinking if grml comes with some kind of this software that

could save the information on a USB or through network.

Doing a fast search on Debian repository there's something called

"ocsinventory" but seems not to be part of grml (maybe I should

remaster a CD with it).

And the "hardware detection tool" that you can use at boot time is not

usable for this since I didn't find a way to save the information to a

device not network so is hard to inventory about 50 computers with it.

Thanks for all.
