Memory Manufacturer in Linux
Hello Everybody,
I'm writting an app and I need to get information
about all devices in the computer, using the minimum
of dependences. ok then ...
Now I need to get information about memory, I already
selected some information from

cat /proc/meminfo
dmidecode -t 5
dmidecode -t 17
hwinfo --memory
lshw -C memory (I choose not to use this one)

here is the problem, I need the model and manufacturer
of the memory, but none of these is providing this information.

dmidecode should, but the field came black. Oo

can anybody help?

What does this command produce? Any data?
sudo dmidecode –type 17

If the manufacturer field is blank in the output of these tools, it simply means that the manufacturer has not written his name into the SPD, which is the chip on the RAM modules that contain the information about the RAMs. This often the case with OEM/third party RAM. There is nothing you can do about it.
