is there a quick way to showing you guys my system information? can i enter some sort of line into the terminal and get the information needeD?
The software on your system's liable to be different from mine, so I'm not sure what you have at your disposal. My preferred tool for listing hardware is called lshw
--- it may or may not be installed on your machine. Log in as root and try:
If that doesn't work then lshw
is probably not installed on your machine. Of course you can simply install it if you wish, but it's possible that your distribution already includes a tool similar to lshw
--- I can't say. Maybe someone else can shed light on this...
...Anyway, you can always find information about your CPU & memory from /proc
cat /proc/cpuinfo /proc/meminfo
For information about your PCI devices, issue the command
...And if you want even more (and can wait an age for the benchmarking to complete), you could try
hardinfo -f html > hardwareinfo.html
(here the output is in HTML and is redirected to a file which can be viewed in a web browser).
Also, you can have a look at what the kernel spits out during the boot process:
Again, though, there's a lot to sift through, so you may want to redirect it to a file or pipe it to a paging program and peruse it in order to pick out the interesting bits, e.g.
Anyway, I hope this helps. Good luck!
