accessiing ones systems
« on: April 06, 2009, 02:19:17 am »
Here is my question:
Is there any way that I can find out how to access my towers hardware specifications.e.g. I would like to know how much
RAM my Motherboard has installed; It originally had 64Mb,but some has been added , and I am not sure what the current amount is.
also the capacity of my hard drive etc.
Thanking you.

Probably there's some profiling tool installed in vl, but to find out those things, I use some commandline apps:
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/meminfo # ram info
cat /proc/cpuinfo #cpu specs
free     # swap and ram
df -h  # hard drive info

I think you should find System Profiler on the System menu - at least it's there in VL6.0 Gold. It'll tell you a lot about your system.
