Detect hardware configuration


Hello, i´m programming an aplication that need detect the hardware configuration of the system.
In the /proc directory i find many information but i need a little more, for example, the motherboard information, number of banks of memory, maximum number of capacity of each bank, bios manufacturer, Cpu zocalo, keyboard and mouse info, etc.,
How can i obtain this information? there are some utility that do this?

Thanks, Ivan Garcia.

There's a nice DOS Tool out there, called ASM (advanced system mole)
that does all of this, maybe if you politely ask the author he'll share his
code with you since he' is (or at least was about 2 years ago :}) distributing
it on a non-cost basis :}

Gidday!

You might want to look at kudzu or the anakonda ...
Not quite sure how much detail about BIOS, memory banks,
timing etc. they provide, though ...

Good luck hunting!

Cheers,
Tink

P.S.: Even though ASM is DOS (and it's successor AIDA Win32) you might ask for
the code and try to port it ;)
