I would like to use 'lshw' with 3.4.3 Mepis


I have Simply Mepis 3.4.3 and would like to use 'lshw' but it is not in my program (and I've tried as 'su')

When I look at the files in Synaptic, I don't see it there either.

I would appreciate it if someone would tell me how to get this code.

Thanks.

Lewis.

I downloaded this:-

The latest version is B.02.07.

Then clicked on 'extract' but I'm not sure what to do next to make it operative.

Kind regards.

Lewis.

Replace lshw-release.tar.gz with the right name of the file you downloaded.

This is the file I downloaded and I have it on my desktop as well as in 'documents'.

$ tar xvfz lshw-B.02.07.tar.gz
tar: lshw-B.02.07.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Kind regards.

tar zxvf lshw-B.02.07.tar.gz

You have to type this command in the folder where is the file.
Commands:

pwd : to see where you are
ls : to list the folder-where-you-are's content
cd : to change directory

Ex.: When you open a terminal, you are in "/home/youraccount" ; type pwd to see it.
If you do "ls" , you'll see you have a folder named "Desktop".
To go inside, type cd Desktop. Retype pwd to ensure this works.
Type "cd .." to go back.

Thanks.

This worked well and I now have the folder lshw-B.02.07 on my Desktop.

I read README and it says " To compile it, just use: $ make "

Do I have to be in Desktop to do that, or which directory?

Kind regards.

Lewis.

Somehow I have ended up with a 'locked' file in my 'Documents' and have been unable to delete it.

Anyway, I will try the process again, as I am sure that I have the information I should need to install ' lshw '.

Kind regards.

lshw is in the debian repos apt-get install lshw, then when tis installed issue lshw as root to get all your system info, issuing lshw as a normal user in the terminal doesnt provide as much info.

Thanks.

I tried that as 'su' but it failed for me.

# apt-get install lshw
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package lshw

Doubtless I did something wrong?

Kind regards.

Lewis.

If you haven't used apt-get yet you may need to do "apt-get update" to get the latest list of packages from the repositories.

It just appears to me (for whatever thats worth, as I really don't know what I'm doing yet) that ' lshw ' is not available to me with version 3.4.3

# apt-get update
Reading package lists... Done
# apt-get install lshw
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package lshw
# exit

Kind regards.

Lewis.
