I need to know my video card/chipset, X11 Driver, driver version, and Xorg version. It seems to me that finding this information is always scattered throughout various utilities. Is there an easy way to get it all at once?
lspci -vvv for video card
X -version for Xorg version.
The easy way to get it all is in the X logs (typically something like
/var/log/Xorg.0.log). It's buried in a heap of other information though.
You should try
lspci, which stands for "List PCI devices", it will show you what graphic card you have.
Xorg -version, will show you your version of Xorg.
vim /etc/X11/xorg.conf will show you the drivers that Xorg is using.
Hope the clears it up a bit.
except that it says nothing about things like X.org version, driver version, or really anything but my hardware... I could also do
xdriinfo, or even
xdpyinfobut it all ends up with me still missing some critical info and making other stops. Mar 13, 2012 at 7:07
Then parametrize the command.– vakufoMar 13, 2012 at 8:01
