[Bug 1527826] Re: Please enable dmidecode for arm64


Thanks for reporting.

I found a corresponding bug report in Debian, and from what I can see,
dmidecode 2.12-4 and later are built for arm64. This is available in
Ubuntu 15.10. I don't know how easy it would be to enable this for older
releases, but if you need a fix for the bug in previous versions of
Ubuntu, please perform as much as possible of the SRU Procedure [1] to
bring the need to a developer's attention.
