How To get your System Info & How To Install Kernels
« on: 01. October 2013, 18:20:55 »
The following commands will get you some basic details about your setup.
You can use them when posting about your problems if you think it helps.
Try these commands in a terminal.


Basic System Info
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fxz
Kernel(s) Installed
Code: [Select]
mhwd-kernel -li
Kernel being used(point release)
Code: [Select]
uname -r
Graphics driver(s) installed
Code: [Select]
mhwd -li

For more such commands, which give info about CPU, USB Devices, Network Devices, etc see the following link-

To get more complete info about kernels and related stuff-

Edit-
Although Manjaro uses a rolling release model http://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=The_Rolling_Release_Development_Model,
some people may want to know which version(snapshot) of Manjaro they are running. For that-
Code: [Select]
lsb_release -a

A 2nd thing I would like to add is how to install kernels.

1. Check which kernel(s) you currently have
Code: [Select]
mhwd-kernel -li
2. Check which kernels are available
Code: [Select]
mhwd-kernel -l
3. Install the kernel
Code: [Select]
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux<kernel-version>
For example the latest kernel is kernel 3.17, to install it would need to do-
Code: [Select]
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux317
To install the Long Term Stable(LTS) Kernel, currently its linux314
Code: [Select]
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux314
The kernel which you want to use can be selected at boot time from the GRUB menu.


Also read the Wiki for furthur info.
