I have been a full-time Linux user for five years. I have never heard of lsdev, and typing it at the command line (both as normal user and as root) on my Debian 6.0 system produces a command not found error, yet typing dmesg spits out the expected hardware-related kernel messages. I have always used dmesg regardless of distribution (some Debian based, some based on other distributions, some independent), and have never gotten a command not found error. Since I have not used any of the BSDs (I plan to when I can replace my dead hard disk), I cannot say if dmesg exists in PC-BSD, so I do not feel comfortable editing the table.

Found a source for some info to include in this section: Unix Toolbox

Started with more necessary/common commands that have nearly identical results, but are invoked differently.

Since tigersharke asked, here is the link to the freebsd article for linux users to migrate http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/linux-users/index.html

it's at anyone's discretion how that URL will be used in this wiki page. so use it wisely. --"What may be obvious to you, may not be obvious to others. That's why we have to write about them." 23:12, 17 July 2011 (PDT)

lsdev vs. dmesg

I have been a full-time Linux user for five years.
