Hi friends,

Several ways:

- You can find various information about devices and their connected status in /proc . In particular, look at /proc/devices , which lists character and block devices that have been detected.

- dmesg will print out the message buffer of the kernel, which includes detected hardware. Pipe it to 'less' or 'tail' for easier reading.

- lspci and lsusb will provide information about connected PCI and USB devices/controllers, respectively. Note that these commands simply reformat the information found in the /proc filesystem.
