Hi, satimis.

No options. I ran lshw and that was part of the report ... cheers, makyo

DESCRIPTION
lshw is a small tool to extract detailed information on the hardware
configuration of the machine. It can report exact memory configuration,
firmware version, mainboard configuration, CPU version and speed, cache
configuration, bus speed, etc. on DMI-capable x86 or IA-64 systems and
on some PowerPC machines (PowerMac G4 is known to work).

It currently supports DMI (x86 and IA-64 only), OpenFirmware device
tree (PowerPC only), PCI/AGP, CPUID (x86), IDE/ATA/ATAPI, PCMCIA (only
tested on x86), SCSI and USB.

Hi, satimis.

Running lshw produces a lot of output. One part of that is the BIOS and revision as I posted. There is an option for "class memory" that may be related to what you are asking, but I have never used it.

Please see man lshw for more information. I am sure you can figure out what you need to know.

Best wishes on your quest ... cheers, makyo
