Hi!
I noticed a while back that the hardware tab in gnome-system-monitor,
which I found quite useful, has disappeared for 11.3. I thought this was
something upstream, but now I see this report
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=582311
and it looks like it was actually an openSUSE patch that was committed
upstream in 2009. So if this is not in 11.3 is it because of a bug, or
by design and if so is there some simple way to enable it?

It was committed upstream in a branch, which means it's not in the
releases.

We removed the patch in openSUSE because it made gnome-system-monitor
depend on hal, and that didn't make sense. We also try to avoid keeping
patches forever if upstream doesn't accept them...

FWIW, Kay was mentioning that the information in there was most
generally incomplete.

So the short story is that's it's gone, and unless someone make it go
upstream properly, it won't come back.

Vincent
