Using 'prtpci' to list PCI devices

On Solaris, if you want to check the details of the hardware installed
in your PC, you can use the command 'prtconf -pv'. However, the output is
very long, and gives too great a level of detail. Sun's Dan Mick has written
a perl program, called 'prtpci' which gives a more useful summary.
Here is how I installed the program:

bash-3.00# wget
=> `prtpci.tar.Z'
Connecting to||:21... connected.
Logging in as anonymous ... Logged in!
==> SYST ... done. ==> PWD ... done.
==> TYPE I ... done. ==> CWD /pub/dmick ... done.
==> PASV ... done. ==> RETR prtpci.tar.Z ... done.

And here is the (edited) output of what it shows
on my Dell Precision 380:

The above clearly shows the ATI graphics card, the Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet card, and the ICH7 SATA card (using AHCI).

Using wget, gcc & gmake on Solaris, by fixing the PATH

Solaris has a number of useful commands, like gcc and wget, hidden away in
directory '/usr/sfw/bin'. But, by default, for user root, Solaris does not add this
directory to the path. So assuming you are using Bash as your shell,
try the following:

bash-3.00# echo $PATH
bash-3.00# export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sfw/bin
bash-3.00# echo $PATH
bash-3.00# wget -V
GNU Wget 1.10.2
bash-3.00# gcc -v
gcc version 3.4.3 (csl-sol210-3_4-20050802)
bash-3.00# gmake -v
GNU Make 3.80
bash-3.00# uname -a
SunOS solaris 5.11 snv_57 i86pc i386 i86pc
