I need to know what chipset / motherboard type for a FreeBSD box. Is there a quick way to do that without ports ?

Thanks

pciconf -lv will give a list of the PCI devices in the system. It's not a great way to read chipset information and may return very little usable information, at any rate it will be in cryptic form. The dmidecode port would be much preferred, but pciconf is part of the base OS.

You will find dmidecode in /usr/ports/sysutils/dmidecode –  Tim Dec 20 '11 at 17:16
