Identify your Unix / Linux machine

The Mr Memory computer scanner is not compatible with Unix or Linux.

But don't worry, we can still help you with your memory upgrade.

There are many utilities available for Linux that can report system hardware details, but we find 'Hardware Lister' (lshw) to be the quickest and easiest utility to identify your system and installed memory. lshw is pre-installed on most popular Linux distributions and can be easily installed if not already. Visit the Hardware Lister website for more information.

Follow the guide below to run lshw on your system. Please note that these steps may vary across different versions of Linux.

For further assistance please Contact Us and a Memory Expert will be pleased to help you identify your device and assist you with your Memory upgrade.

How to use the Linux 'lshw' utility

  1. Open the 'Terminal' (type 'terminal' into the search box).
  2. Type 'sudo lshw -short' into the Terminal window and hit Enter.
  3. When prompted enter your password.
  4. This should display system information similar to the screenshot below.
  5. Please enter the 'system' description into the search box above to find your upgrade options.
  6. The 'memory' details will show you how much memory you have installed already. If you require more detailed information please repeat step 2 without '-short'.
