Is there a utility that comes with openSUSE that can be used to
tell what type of RAM the computer has? Not the amount. But the
type.

Stumbled upon:
decode-dimms

On openSUSE 11.1 it is in 'i2c-tools' package and needs 'eeprom'
kernel module loaded.

It reads SPD information on memory module ROM.

I didn't happen to have i2c-tools installed on my 10.3 system, but
locate found /usr/bin/decode-dimms.pl (from the sensors-2 package) and
it seems to perform a similar function. Likewise, the kernel module
eeprom must be loaded for it to work.
