I am pretty sure that most of you guys are interested about the hardware specs of your PC. Most of you may already know it..
But here I am gonna just show the methods to know iff u don`t ..
In windows, one may have used softwares like that of Belarc Advisor and others OR if you are a system programmer then you may have used API to get the details of your hardware. ex-GetSystemInfo function.
Oops, what all I have got???
But what in case of Linux???
Those things wont work, You already know it!!!
So, lets check it out through the SHELL
$dmidecode (one of my fav. commands)
As what its README in source code syas, Dmidecode reports information about your system’s hardware as described in your system BIOS according to
the SMBIOS/DMI standard. This information typically includes system manufacturer, model name, serial number, BIOS version, asset tag as well as a lot of other details of varying level of interest and reliability depending on the manufacturer. This will often include usage status for the CPU sockets, expansion slots (e.g. AGP, PCI, ISA) and memory module slots, and the list of I/O ports (e.g. serial, parallel, USB).
