I'm making progress and hitting brick walls at the same time. off to do the ZCM jumpstart tomorrow and I have a list of questions already.

on to hardware detection

I have a Dell Latitude D630 laptop

running 'img information hardware' the video adapter is correctly identified as a "Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller"

I'm using a bash script to drop add on images for drivers that change.

so I have this in my script

if [ `hwinfo --gfxcard | grep -ic 'Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller'` = "1" ]
img rp $PROXYADDR gids/06-Video-IntelGM965.zmg
fi

of course, wouldn't you know, hwinfo doesn't display the hardware id.

all I get from a "hwinfo --gfxcard'

10:

Model: "Dell VGA compatible controller"
Vendor: "Intel Corporation"
11:

Model "Dell Display controller"
Vendor: "Intel Corporation"

so, how do I detect this hardware ?

if there a way I can get the 'img infomation hardware' to export to file so I can grep that ?

Thanks in advance.
