I'm afraid I don't know of such a thing.
If I were looking to get that information I'd probably start by parsing
the output of lshw. But that might be what you're doind already - you
We had a brief chat on the #wellington.pm channel on irc.perl.org and
the only other suggestion that came up was perhaps your problems are due
to running inside a VM where you can't get access to the information
(once again, wild speculation in the face of little information).
If you do find an awesome solution then by all means tell us :-)
