+Memory (RAM) data. Does not show with \fB\-b\fR or \fB\-F\fR unless you use \fB\-m\fR explicitly. Ordered by system board physical system memory array(s) (\fBArray\-[number] capacity:\fR), and individual memory devices (\fBDevice\-[number]\fR). Physical memory array(s) data shows array capacity, and number of devices supported, and Error Correction information. Devices shows locator data (highly variable in syntax), size, speed, type (eg: \fBtype: DDR3\fR).
+Note that \fB\-m\fR uses \fBdmidecode\fR, which must be run as root (or start \fBinxi\fR with \fBsudo\fR), unless you figure out how to set up sudo to permit dmidecode to read \fB/dev/mem\fR as user. Note that speed will not show if \fBNo Module Installed\fR is found in size. This will also turn off Bus Width data output if it is null.
+Because dmidecode data is extremely unreliable, inxi will try to make best guesses. If you see \fB(check)\fR after capacity number, you should check it for sure with specifications. \fB(est)\fR is slightly more reliable, but you should still check the real specifications before buying ram. Unfortunately there is nothing \fBinxi can do to get truly reliable data about the system ram, maybe one day the kernel devs will put this data into \fB/sys\fR, and make it real data, taken from the actual system, not dmi data. For most people, the data will be right, but a significant percentage of users will have either wron max module size, if present, or max capacity.
