But I get:


# dmidecode 2.9
SMBIOS 2.4 present.

Handle 0x0002, DMI type 2, 8 bytes
Base Board Information
Manufacturer: ASUSTek Computer INC.
Product Name: NARRA
Version: 1.01
Serial Number: MS1C73S32400696

Actually the motherboard is an Asus M2N68-LA, NARRA is just what HP call it. I wonder if the output depends a lot on whether the machine is home-built, or from a big manufacturer. I had a look at the same thing on my Toshiba laptop last night, and that was pretty uninformative about the motherboard's proper name as well.
Bye, Rhakios

What's the difference between terminal and byobu terminal?

They look identical.

I used hwinfo and got a stupid amount of info mainly about partition on my drives and my drives and USB connections.

No sign of the MOBO.

byobu is a theme for screen, which runs inside a terminal but can be detached and reattached to a different terminal at will.

Try lshw, I find it more useful than hwinfo and it does give motherboard information.

Wilco.

I played with byobu last night and suddenly realised that it was holding my mother board's name on the bottom panel.

Thinking about the install I suddenly realised Ubuntu had forced me to name the computer with that odd number on it. I had assumed it was just a random code number made up on the spot. :oops:

ishw found the spot others just can't reach.

My motherboard and the graphics card are no longer someone else's secret.

Thanks to all. :D

How do I get it to allow me on as superuser or root?

Also I need to learn some useful commands the Gnome terminal help wasn't, much. Very easy to understand though.
