Question Linux commands to determine graphics card

Does anyone have more reliable commands to determine what graphics card is installed on a Linux 32-bit and 64-bit box? This is what I have so far, but I would like more that do not involve X.

glxinfo | grep renderer
cat /var/log/XFree86.0.log | grep "GPU detected"
/sbin/lspci | grep VGA
cat /proc/pci | grep VGA

Thanks!

If you are using the nvidia binary driver you should be able to use:

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0

I think the commands you provided yourself are about as generic as they get. ;-)

Unfortunately, the above do not seem to be useful on Itanium boxes with a non-nVidia card inside.

This will proberly not be much help but YAST has been open sourced and they are usually quote good for auto detecting gfx cards

lspci -v usually gives you pretty good output IMHO

I wrote this script sometime a year ago but it's kinda incomplete.
