Install CPU-g 0.9.0 in Ubuntu 11.04, An Advanced PC Hardware Details Generator!

Although, even without the help of a dedicated tool, you can still get lot of information about the installed hardware in GNU Linux (using both Terminal and some tools the distributions include by default). But if you want a dedicated utility that has a GUI which enables you to see all of your current installed hardware (advanced information) and their details such as ...

*. CPU type, FSB (front side bus), Core Speed, Cache size, etc.

*. RAM - Installed RAM, Speed...

*. Processor over-clocking support.

*. Voltage usage of the processor.

*. Various motherboard related information such as BIOS, Chipset, Memory Banks, AGP, etc.

This is a very useful tool for all the hardware geeks out there :). So, if you're using Ubuntu 11.04 beta, you can easily install CPU-g using the below command in Terminal.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/nattyextra
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cpu-g

For Ubuntu 10.10 users, please use the below command.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/maverickextra

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install cpu-g

@ Anonymous,

I don't use Mandriva friend, however you could visit the cpu-g home page (below) and download the compressed archive.

Then extract its content, and try double clicking on the file named "cpu-g".

(But first make sure it's executable, which you can confirm usually by right clicking on it, choose properties, then make sure you've added a check mark under "allow executing file as program", in Nautilus).

That might work. Here's the link,

Good luck.
