Sometimes i just love to inspect different aspects of hardware in systems…
One would assume to have accurate system information, but user
nobody would lay it better than devs of
dmidecode in it’s man:
More often than not, information contained in the DMI tables is inaccurate, incomplete or simply wrong.
At that point, you may as well replace your parser with an RNG and call it good (with a few bugs).
lshw (to be run as Superuser)?
Always preferred this one to dmidecode.
To be honest i always thought for some reason that it’s based on
dmidecode, well not entirely…
lshw -disable dmi
