PR65 on Github (thanks to Z.Bitter)

Due to a regression introduced by 8ff1efb, no size was recorded for memory banks <32GiB in size on systems with an SMBIOS version of 2.7 or later. On these systems the Type 17 size field from SMBIOS was only recorded if the extended size field was used.

Modify the code to use the regular size field whenever it is valid (not 0xFFFF) and not set to 0x7FFF on versions >2.7 (indicating the extended size field is in use).

lshw: HardWare LiSter for Linux

lshw is a small tool to provide detailed information on the hardware configuration of the machine. It can report exact memory configuration, firmware version, mainboard configuration, CPU version and speed, cache configuration, bus speed, etc. on DMI-capable x86 or EFI (IA-64) systems and on some ARM and PowerPC machines (PowerMac G4 is known to work).

Information can be output in plain text, XML or HTML.

It currently supports DMI (x86 and EFI only), OpenFirmware device tree (PowerPC only), PCI/AGP, ISA PnP (x86), CPUID (x86), IDE/ATA/ATAPI, PCMCIA (only tested on x86), USB and SCSI.

Installation

  1. Requirements
  • Linux 2.4.x, 2.6.x, 3.x or 4.x (2.2.x might work, though)
  • a PA-RISC-, Alpha-, IA-64- (Itanium-), PowerPC-, ARM- or x86- based machine
  • an ANSI (or close enough to ANSI compliance) C++ compiler (tested with g++ 2.95.4 and 3.x)
  • for the (optional) GTK+ graphical user interface, you will need a complete GTK+ development environment (gtk3-devel on RedHat/Fedora derivatives)
  1. To compile it, just use:

    $ make
    

    To compile with zlib support (see below), use:

    $ make ZLIB=1
    
  2. If you want to build the optional GUI, do:

    $ make
    $ make gui
    
  3. If you want to install the result, do:

    $ make install
    $ make install-gui
    

Getting help

  1. the lshw home page is http://lshw.ezix.org/
  2. bug reports and feature requests: http://ezix.org/project/newticket?component=lshw

Please make sure you include enough information in your bug report: XML output from lshw is preferred over text or HTML, indicate the affected version of lshw, your platform (i386, x86-64, PA-RISC, PowerPC, etc.) and your distribution.

NOTE TO DISTRIBUTIONS

By default, lshw includes its own lists of PCI IDs, USB IDs, etc. but will also look for this information in

/usr/share/lshw/,
/usr/local/share/,
/usr/share/,
/etc/,
/usr/share/hwdata/,
/usr/share/misc/

If compiled with zlib support, lshw will look for file.gz first, then for file.

Statically-linked and/or compressed binaries can be built by using

$ make static

or

$ make compressed

in the src/ directory

Building compressed binaries requires upx (cf. https://upx.github.io/).
