We are using the UP in new systems we sell and want to give them a serialnumber/licensecode.
We found command: dmidecode -t 1
It gives info like: To be filled by O.E.M.

Question: where, in which file, can we put something unique automatically by our software to gice the board kind of licensecode?

    We too would like to set the serial number. Can this be done via the BIOS or would it be set via the JTAG connector (CN34 "Update CPLD" on UP-CHT01)

    Hi!

    The values from dmidecode are generated in kernel code.
    As they aren't "real" files, just a "link" to kernel functionalities (around sysfs), you have to edit that files in kernel compilation and rebuild and reboot it.

    Cheers!
