    Question How much RAM?


    How can I find out in Linux how much RAM I have in my computer? I've been able to discover my processor and video card through YaST, but although I am assuming this should be in the same area, I can't find it. (I have SuSE, by the way). Thanks for any help!

    In a terminal, you can type :
    Code:
    cat /proc/meminfo
    And look for a line like that (it's the first line of the output) :

    which in that case would mean that you have 1G of ram.
