Hi,

The lspci command doesn't show what you are looking for.

Try this:
Code:
lshal | grep system.board
BTW: I'm not 100% sure lshal is present by default on all linux distro's

Hope this helps.

One of my machines runs Debian 6/squeeze and it works on that one.

lshal is part of the hal package. Install it and you have access to the lshal command.

Hope this helps.

What was the output?

Mine looks like this:
Code:
$ lshal | grep system.board
  system.board.product = 'P6T DELUXE V2'  (string)
  system.board.serial = '106561180000542'  (string)
  system.board.vendor = 'ASUSTeK Computer INC.'  (string)
  system.board.version = 'Rev 1.xx'  (string)
The bold part shows the correct info for me.

Heres the output:

system.board.product = 'Iris8' (string)
system.board.serial = '' (string)
system.board.vendor = 'ECS' (string)
system.board.version = '1.0' (string)

would running it as root do anything?
