System profiler and benchmark tool for Linux systems
*** This project is not dead, but needs a maintainer *** *** Please contact the author if you're interested *** HardInfo is a system profiler and benchmark for Linux systems. It is able to obtain information from both hardware and basic software, and organize them in a simple to use GUI. Features include: - Report generation (in either HTML or plain text) - Benchmark result synchronization - Ability to explore the information on remote computers DEPENDENCIES ------------ Required: - GTK+ 2.10 (or newer) - GLib 2.10 (or newer) Optional (for synchronization/remote): - Libsoup 2.24 (or newer) BUILDING -------- HardInfo previously used a hand-made Makefile and configure scripts, but it is now using CMake. This makes the job of maintaining HardInfo simpler and also produces better binaries. To build, it is recommended to create a build directory and build from there: hardinfo $ mkdir build hardinfo $ cd build build $ cmake .. build $ make There are some variables that can be changed: CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE Can be either Release or Debug [Default: Release] Debug builds prints messages to console and are not recommended for general use CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX Sets the installation prefix. [Default: /usr/local] To set a variable, pass use cmake's -D command-line parameter. For example: build $ cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug SETTING UP ---------- Most things in HardInfo are detected automatically. However, some things depends on manual set up. They are: Sensors ------- lm-sensors: If your computer is compatible with lm-sensors module, use the "sensors-detect" program included with the lm-sensors package, and be sure to have the detected kernel modules loaded. hddtemp: To obtain the hard disk drive temperature, be sure to run hddtemp in daemon mode, using the default port.
