System Information


Hi. How do I find out what my system is as far as Processor, speed, memory, etc. I'm sure it is pretty simple.

Thanks

cat /proc/cpuinfo
cat /proc/meminfo

(may not work if kernel not configured or modern enough)
lots of other interesting stuff in /proc too

Thank you very much. That worked great. I don't suppose you know if there is something in the GUI that does that is there?

There's a monitoring gui called gkrellm which is good for staring at, makes you feel like you're in control. You do need to read the instructions to set it up though.

Otherwise it depends on what distribution and desktop you are using (you should put this in your profile to give people some context when answering your questions)

If you have kde you can run kinfocenter and it returns all the information available from /proc in a nice graphical tool form.

Thanks, I will do that. How can I see exactly what version of Linux I am running. I know its Fedora Core 4, but I'm sure there is more to it then that.

Fedora Core 4 is your distro.
If you want to know your kernel version, you can type "uname -r" at a terminal.
