use aida32 or everest and it will show exactly what type of ram you have.

What exactly is the nix equivalent? Looks like you're suggesting that I must reach for Wine...think it'll work? Edited by logicalconfusion

Aida32 works beautifully on XP, too bad Wine's not sophisticated enough to emulate it properly. I read somewhere that an CPU-Z might work if it's configured to run as a WIN98 application, but have yet to experiment. The cmd lspci -vv seems very cryptic. I cannot decipher its output or if it actually displays RAM type. mellow.png ?

Linux probably has native commands to query the system itself. I don't know what they are, but linux treats every part of the systems as a file or device, whether hardware or software, so you should be able to lookup all that info via the console. In windows, I use wmic to do some of it in a bat script I wrote a while ago. just right click and run as administrator:


cd \

this gives some basic info, like what motherboard and bios you have, system users, etc. Might not be what you are looking for, but there are other commands in wmi that you can use for more system details.

Three useful linux commands that should help you list hardware (Note Mr-Protocol's reply links to a page which mentions these and a lot more).

lspci - lists the devices found on the PCI busses.

lsusb - lists the devices found on the Universial Serail Busses

dmidecode - lists a mass of information found from the BIOS

correct! It's all available through the good ol' cmdlne. sudo lshw | less really hit the nail on the head. I bet they're working a nifty tool that combines aida32 and CUP-Z now. Thanks for the info. You can write it out to txt uising re-direction, makes it a bit easier to read. sudo lshw | less > hdwre.txt
