System Information Software


New to Bohdi. Want to install software that give me System Information about my hardware (and OS). Looking at the options available in the installer, there doesn't seem to be any, which seems a bit of a shortcoming.

I have installed Synaptic, and am comfortable using that, but wondered what package is going to give 'the best fit' with Bohdi. On LXLE I use hardinfo, would that be a sensible choice for Bohdi, or is there something more suitable?

You can find a lot of information using various command line tools, such as top and htop, lspci, free, du, df, and many others. See their respective man pages for more information.

If you are looking for a GUI tool, hardinfo is a very nice job of work. I would be surprised if it were not in the repos.

Agree with Cordx, hardinfo will be a good choice.

Inxi, not only because choice but also because it's available on the repos and is freakin neat, e.g:

'-b' stands for basic aka system/hardware summary, but one can also display:
'-C' for cpu
'-G' for gpu
'-D' for your disks
'-S' for system
Can add 'x' or 'xx' to each option for eXtra detail.
