HARDINFO
========
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
Status
------
Capabilities: Hardinfo currently decteds software and detected hardware by the OS, mostly almost all.
Features: the remote sync was disable due server was lost
Development: currently are made by contribution, a stable and fixed/dedicated maintainer are required.
DEPENDENCIES
------------
Required:
- GTK+ 2.10 (or newer)
- GLib 2.10 (or newer)
- Zlib (for zlib benchmark)
Optional (for synchronization/remote):
- Libsoup 2.24 (or newer)
BUILDING
--------
Create a build directory and build from there:
``` bash
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]` : distributions generalli changes to `/usr`
* `HARDINFO_NOSYNC` : Disables network synchronization
* `[Default: 1]` : Disabled by default due the server service was lost.
To set a variable, pass use cmake's -D command-line parameter. For example:
` build $ cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug `
Network sync are enabled if libsoup are detected, if having trouble building with libsoup, disable it with:
` build $ cmake -DHARDINFO_NOSYNC=1`
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 by example the
`sensors-detect` program included with the lm-sensors package of Debian based distros, 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.
### Memory Speed
The module `eeeprom` mus be loaded to display info about memory hardware instaled.
Load with `modprobe eeprom` and refres the module screen.
