Check operability of computer hardware and find drivers
A tool to check operability of computer hardware and upload result to the Linux hardware database.
Probe — is a snapshot of your computer hardware state. The tool checks operability of devices by analysis of logs and returns a permanent url to view the probe of the computer.
The probes are intended to simplify collecting of logs necessary for investigating hardware related problems. Just run one simple command in the console to check your hardware and collect all the system logs at once:
sudo hw-probe -all -upload
If some of hardware devices don't work due to missed drivers then the tool will suggest a proper Linux kernel version according to the LKDDb or third-party drivers.
Enable snaps on openSUSE and install Hardware Probe
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.
You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.0 for either openSUSE_Leap_42.3 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
Snap can now be installed with the following:
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
