Description Bill Nottingham 2004-03-10 14:25:23 EST
It just prints out the header and exits.


Enforcing vs. non-enforcing doesn't matter.
Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2004-04-16 10:30:07 EDT
Works well here on kernel-2.6.5-1.326.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2004-04-16 12:21:18 EDT
Bill, what sort of machine did you try it on? It's possible that there
aren't any DMI tables there.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-16 12:44:42 EDT
Intel dual em64t box. (in 64-bit mode)
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2004-04-16 18:50:57 EDT
Ok, my money is on it having no DMI tables.
Not seen enough of them to verify this, but adding a printf in the
dmidecode source to print "No DMI tables found" when the search fails
is probably a quick & easy way to double check.
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2004-06-14 20:00:17 EDT
bill, did you ever find out if this box had dmi tables ?
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2004-06-28 17:00:38 EDT
Yeah, it doesn't appear to find anything that matches the signatures.
