ScreenFetch – A Better Way to Post System Info!

Hello readers!

I know I haven’t posted in well…forever, but I am quite busy for the last couple of months / a year, so yeah (#LameExcuse, sorry :D).

[  About  ]

Anyway, today I found this Linux package called ScreenFetch. Basically, you run it and it will display your OS, kernel and system information (plus a logo of your distro :D).

It’s meant to be used for bug reporting / debugging purposes. It definitely saves the time of looking everything up ( uname -a, free -m etc.). I think it’s a pretty cool (ASCII art :D) / useful tool for debugging and problem solving.

Here’s a screenshot of what it outputs on my server.

Then, when you need to, run it, and take a screenshot!**

Well, that’s it for this article! Thanks for reading, and hope this helps someone!
