Linux system utilities

Post by biodoc » Mon Aug 23, 2021 1:27 pm

I'm a bit bored so I thought I'd start a thread on useful system utilities for linux.

CPU-x

If you like cpu-z on the windows side, cpu-x is very similar.

Installation (mint): sudo apt install cpu-x

Running: To obtain the most information, run it as root. cpu-x --help gives all the options

sudo cpu-x -g <----- Start graphical user interface (GUI) (default)
sudo cpu-x -n <------ Start text-based user interface (TUI) Can be run over ssh connections.
sudo cpu-x -d <------ Dump all data on standard output and exit. Can be run over ssh connections

Same here on my 3950X. :)

The app version distributed by mint is an older version. Perhaps installing the latest version manually would fix that error.

mark@x32-linux:~$ cpu-x -V
CPU-X 3.2.4 (version 4.2.0 is available)
