    You suspect an IRQ conflict on your Linux box and want to see a list of the IRQs using the command line. Where will you locate this list? Choose only one answer:

    1. /etc/IRQ_list
    2. /proc/interrupts
    3. /root/interrupts
    4. /bin/IRQ
    5. /dev/interupts

    Answer later.

    There's a possibility that this may vary by distro as there are variations between distros in how they set up the heirarchy in /proc. It may not vary on this example in particular, but I do know the entire /proc heirarchy is not the same from distro to distro. I do this on Debian by "cat /proc/interrupts".

    Answer time. Number 2 is correct (as Freddy surmised). :) The Proc directory contains a wealth of information on various hardware and process features on the Linux machine.
