    I prefer hardinfo. It’s in the repos too & there’s a lot more to it than sysinfo. Just open a terminal & type “sudo apt-get install hardinfo” then after it’s install just type “hardinfo” to run it.

    lswh is much more powerful and it’s already installed.

  3. Tom says:

    When I selected System with my mouse – sysinfo exited? And if I set Preferences to start with System – it does not launch from System Tools or launchs and then immediately exits.

    No Thank you – very much! I’ll go with lshw.

  4. Andriy says:

    It requires Mono 🙁

  5. Hardinfo is quite nicely made. I also like hlsw-gtk as it is really thorough on the information it shows

  6. zob says:

    @Tom. Yeah. It’s a known bug. Sysinfo crashes when you select System. Could have been mentioned in the article or isn’t it affecting all 10.10 systems?

    Somebody mind blocking this Allu John guy? He is putting junk or incorrect infos to my feeds. 🙂

  8. kanna says:

    ok praveenp if you are so good in ubuntu y you are not puting a good Article so that we can learn
    and how many you posted article in ubuntu geetk can you tell me

  9. rMatey180 says:

    Sheesh!!! It’s lshw, and not lswh. And Sysinfo works under 10.04 with the ‘system’ tab. That’s just one of the reasons I moved back – to many things not working. And I even have Hardinfo installed. Hardinfo (or System Profiler and Benchmark) is a well presented GUI.

  10. praveenp says:

    @Kanna, I wonder why I got a mail with same content from Allu John 🙂

    I dont wish to write any article until I got some useful and unpublished informations. But that is no reason to make me suffer bad articles.

    Some screenshots would be nice

  12. ratnesh says:

    i want full information about my system. Example how many time my system get formatted. plz tell me what is the procedure

  13. zob says:

    I don’t understand. If you format your system, you would expect everything to be deleted, including any information of prior installs of windows or linux…
