hwinfo.tce Extension
« on: March 30, 2009, 06:11:16 PM »
I have installed hwinfo.tce, but I can't find any selection for it in any menu.
Likewise I haven't a clue as to what files, if any can be run from a Terminal
window to access the information added by this extension.  No documentation
can be located for it in the APPS -> INFO window, other than some URL's.

What have I added to my system, and how do I access it?

Thanks.

Comments:       This extensions contains various utils
      for dumping hardware info[...] You can use iasl, the Intel ACPI compiler, to check
      if your ACPI bios is faulty (and fix it). Docs on this
      in /opt.

i used sudo su then ran get-edid and biosdecode. perhaps as i'm in qemu it didn't tell me much, but if you haven't used it before, try running dmesg, which is a feature of busybox, and cat /proc/cpuinfo

If you're looking for an easy GUI to check some hardware info, the "System stats" in the control panel should be helpful.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
