dmidecode doesn't work
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:43:06 EDT
It just prints out the header and exits.
Enforcing vs. non-enforcing doesn't matter.
Works well here on kernel-2.6.5-1.326.
Bill, what sort of machine did you try it on? It's possible that there
aren't any DMI tables there.
Intel dual em64t box. (in 64-bit mode)
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.
bill, did you ever find out if this box had dmi tables ?
Yeah, it doesn't appear to find anything that matches the signatures.
