Gnome has the Sysinfo application. Is there an equivalent package on Elive? I've searched through Synaptic, but can't find one. I've installed Elive on a leftover machine, and I'd like to know what's in there...~(8^})=....

Hi Michael!

I think installing hwinfo could help you.


Elive für Einsteiger: [sites.google.com]

Alex: thank you! Interestingly, that program had already been installed, but since it runs only as root in a terminal and isn't noted in the Applications menu, I had no idea it was there. Is there any documentation out there about this or other software that is similarly hidden, perhaps on the Debian site?

Thanks again!

Just some thinks:
I like so much the htop app but it depend on what you really need...
If you need something really complete and configurable maybe you can look at conky which can be hard to config but it's so extensible... Depending on your free time...
About the non-existing menu entry: You can easily create you're own, you just have to remember as it need to be run as root just prefix your application entry with "esu" like:
esu htop
