GNU/Linux Command – LSHAL

lshal — list Hardware Abstraction Layer(HAL) devices

lshal will list the devices in the HAL database.

Note: In the latest (2011) distros, the HAL is deprecated. So use the UdevAdm tool.


$ lshal -- List all devices with all details.
$ lshal -s -- List only name (UID) off all devices.
$ lshal -t -- List devices in tree form.
$ lshal -m -- Monitor and Print the hald daemon messages.
$ lshal -u /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pci_8086_2a40 -- Show 
the details about the specified UID alone.
