I've seen a handful of posts from people with this issue, yet almost no answers to go along with. When I type "dmidecode" (with or without options), all appropriate information is displayed, but always with this at the end:
Invalid entry length (0). DMI table is broken! Stop.
While poking around for an explanation, I noticed that when I type "man dmidecode" and scroll down to the list of DMI types, there is a blank line between entry #32 and #33. Seeing as the invalid entry length of '0' is the perceived issue, I'm wondering if that blank line represents the invalid entry...or if I'm in the right ballpark with this.
I'm guessing that:
A) Whomever typed up the manual for dmidecode accidentally pressed ENTER an extra time, or
B) The blank line represents an instance of unexpected format from the actual DMI table.
Any insight regarding an explanation or a remedy would be appreciated.
To be clear, my command line, straight from the factory, dispalyed as "user@host-model#-Invalid-entry-length-(0)-DMI-table-is-broken-Stop.:~$". That is not the issue I'm addressing. I posted a fix for that issue here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...op-4175501435/
