I just upgraded to KDE 4.2 and was wondering where I can go to find my computer information, such as RAM, and other details about it. I have been looking around for a while now and cant find it... I can't remember my computer info... even though I've had it for three years... I'm pitiful :-(


I figured that much out-but what about the rest of my laptop's info?? I am trying to tell someone all about it (ex: 80 GB Hard Drive, 1 GB RAM, Broadcom 802.11g Wireless card... i really need to get into details, including the hardware installed.

Open KMenu -> Applications -> System -> System Monitor and click on system load tab. You can see under "memory and swap history"

or .. type at konsole:
Code: Select all
free -m
[hr]
After the subject is now changed, you can also view other info by adding a widget. You can do that by clicking the cashew Image (top right corner), click Add Widgets and add the "System monitor -- Hardware info" widget.

Type in konsole:
Code: Select all
hwinfo --short

^^ it can be very long. :) For very detailed information just type without the --short option.
Good luck.

If you want really detailed information about your hardware ( such as revision, capabilities, etc ) you could run both
lspci -v
lsusb -v


KDE Sysadmin

if you want to send a text file about your hardware configurations: use the following:
sudo lshw > hw.txt

if you want to see it yourself, just use kinfocenter

Open up the software installer, do a search for "cpp", click on it, then select the "versions" tab. If there are any versions that say X86_64, then you are using a 64-bit installation. If there aren't, you are using a 32-bit installation.

Try the KDE Control Center Homepage... It displays some tech. Info ;-)
Otherwise... What Distro Are You using? If you are using Fedora or a Red Hat distro, Try the Anaconda installer and probe all the hardware than reboot your computer. (DON'T INSTALL THE DISTRO AGAIN)
