You would think I would know this but alas...
Is there a utility that comes with openSUSE that can be used to tell
what type of RAM the computer has? Not the amount. But the type.
Well, that's not really a BIOS thing, so Ed's suggestion
of "hwinfo --bios" tells you not about RAM but about the BIOS itself:
It may tell you only that but you saw from Roger's post that it also
gave him info about the RAM. It does the same for me (296 lines of
stuff) and presumably for Ed.
