This question might not be so relevant here, but I want to know if there is some command tool that gives me the currently available RAM slots in my machine, also if any of them is free, and information of the reserved slots. Since I want to extend the RAM of my system, I need to know if there is a free RAM slot in my computer. Kindly help.
~$ sudo hwinfo --bios 2> /dev/null | grep 'Memory Device: #' -A14 | grep 'Size' Size: 4 GB Size: No Memory Installed Size: 4 GB Size: 4 GB
It is always better to look on the motherboard and read the manual about memory limitations as some system BIOSes say they have more slots than they actually do
