OpenSuse does not bundle `lshw`, nor does it appear that any standard repo
has it available (WebPin: http://packages.opensuse-community.org/).

>From http://ezix.org/project/wiki/HardwareLiSter:

Mandriva Linux <http://www.mandrivalinux.org/> includes lshw as a standard
package.
Gentoo Linux <http://www.gentoo.org/> also
bundles<http://packages.gentoo.org/search/?sstring=lshw>
lshw.
Debian <http://www.debian.org/> packages are
available<http://packages.debian.org/lshw>for many platforms.
Fedora <http://fedoraproject.org/> now includes lshw:

$ sudo yum install lshw lshw-gui

to install lshw and its GUI.

Slackware <http://www.slackware.com/> packages are maintained by Marco
Antonio Frias and available on
LinuxPackages<http://www.linuxpackages.net/pkg_details.php?id=11703>

Pre-compiled RPMs for RedHat Linux (7.x & 9), RedHat Enterprise Linux (2 &
3) and Fedora Core (1, 2 & 3) are available from Dag Wieers'
repository<http://dag.wieers.com/packages/lshw/>.
