lshw very slow on Precise
Command "lshw" takes about 30s to list the hardware details (with or without sudo) on ubuntu 12.04 (3.2.0-25 kernel) on an Intel Atom CPU based system. No other OS is installed.
It used to take about 3 seconds with ubuntu 7.10 (the last time the command was run).
What has changed and can the response be made faster? Using the -class option to get selective data does not speed up the total response time for reading the HW information.
Re: lshw very slow on Precise
30 seconds is about right.
The current version of lshw probes for a lot more hardware than the 5 year old version that you have used previously.
