Re: Why do new people give up on Linux?

I can't resist, many good comments, but didn't read the entire thread. I can say a few things, I've been stuck helping windows and osx users fix their issues, which to me is fairly comical because I haven't even seen windows 10 beyond a quick look or two over the years, and the only time I ever see ...

Re: Testers new pinxi/inxi feature: -E/--bluetooth

Serial number should be either there or not there, that comes from the USB /sys data.

Thanks for the sample, looks good, I guess yours just doesn't show serial data.

ls /sys/bus/usb/devices/5-4:*/serial
cat /sys/bus/usb/devices/5-4:*/serial

If those don't show anything, there was no file for that.

Testers new pinxi/inxi feature: -E/--bluetooth

Going through some of the oldest issue/feature requests of inxi, next in line is bluetooth report, which looks/behaves similar to -n advanced networking report. As always: pinxi -U if you have pinxi installed already, that being the development version of inxi, and cd /usr/local/bin && sudo ...

Re: All types of inxi

Re disabling -U, Debian has a rule that packages can't update themselves, which is in most cases a fine rule, but to get inxi packaged in Debian/Ubuntu, I had to add that ability to disable -U, no big deal, easy to undo if you want, the package won't as far as I know overwrite the config file so onc...

Re: All types of inxi

sudo inxi --full --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host I see this one pop up, and most of all, it indicates the problem with stringing together random arguments without even checking if they are required, that is, read the help/man before suggesting redundant arguments like this.

Re: All types of inxi

I forget that mint is running a legacy inxi, -y is what I meant, but I think that came along in 3.1, -u has no meaning since -v8 already runs everything, including -u. -y is a shortcut for -y80, which lets you insert the y wherever you want, not only at the end with the numbers after it.

Re: All types of inxi

It's easy, to see the most possible: sudo inxi -zyv8 for public use, and sudo inxi -v8 for private use. sudo so the stuff that requires root, lke --slots, -m, -L will run fully. unlike running as root, sudo will preserve the gfx and desktop data. -v8 basically shows all system options, so if some ar...

Re: inxi/pinxi beta testers for 3.2 LVM and upgraded RAID etc

There's a bug in 3.2.00, caused by the refactor, that was my fear, I'd missed on key bit, but it only triggered in specific cases, doing things most people, including me, didn't do. I didn't find it during vm testing because it would never trigger in a vm, unfortunately, it's related to how inxi was...

Re: inxi/pinxi beta testers for 3.2 LVM and upgraded RAID etc

inxi 3.2.00 went out yesterday, but in general, there's never any need to wait for next inxi, just run pinxi, use pinxi -U to update it, and have all the latest as soon as it's committed, find any bugs, report them, and help contribute to active development. pinxi is already ahead of inxi 3.2.00 bec...

Re: Linus Torvalds doubts Linux will get ported to Apple M1 hardware

Portreve, interesting observations, thanks. I'd forgotten about really old apple stuff, no idea what they built the first generations on, but that does ring a bell now that you mention risc not being first, makes sense too. Since I've suffered a fair amount in the random chaos that is ARM and SOC de...

Re: [CLARIFIED] RAM identification method used by inxi 3.0.32 is a bit strange

My faith in stick speeds being valid was not justified, so I've further extended it to add note: check for clearly silly values, I'd seen the 1 MT/s glitch in another data set, but found this really good one: Memory: RAM: total: 31.38 GiB used: 20.65 GiB (65.8%) Array-1: capacity: N/A slots: 4 note:...

Re: Linus Torvalds doubts Linux will get ported to Apple M1 hardware

Just a few comments, the M1 is a proprietary apple design, they purchased the very expensive ARM license that allows you to create your designs based on the ARM core, that's quite different from what most arm entities do because it's very expensive, they design their own iphone/idevice arm chips, th...

Re: [CLARIFIED] RAM identification method used by inxi 3.0.32 is a bit strange

This is a very valuable fix, I didn't know this stuff, I'd grabbed the configured speed data but never did anything with it, probably because most data samples, my systems included, showed the same values, so I never looked into it. Fortunately all the complicated logic is in the memory array part, ...

Re: [CLARIFIED] RAM identification method used by inxi 3.0.32 is a bit strange

Looking into this, as with all dmi data, it's not clear, not well documented, and possibly somewhat random. There can be I believe different causes for configured clock/memory speed being different, another example I found was because the person had two matching sticks, and got the 2x speed buost fr...

Re: [CLARIFIED] RAM identification method used by inxi 3.0.32 is a bit strange

ah, that explains it, a speed field name inxi does not know about, I was half wondering if that was the case. I don't know how to read those two field names however, to me, speed is the actual speed, and configured speed is the speed something set it to, but it sounds like configured speed could be ...

Re: RAM identification method used by inxi 3.0.32 is a bit strange

Believe me, if I could get the data from anywhere else reliably, I would, in fact, the man page for -m includes a statement that I waited, and waited, and finally gave up and used dmidecode. I was hoping the kernel guys would put some of the ram data into /sys, but it never happened, at least not th...

Re: RAM identification method used by inxi 3.0.32 is a bit strange

inxi doesn't make up this data, it's from dmidecode, so your assumption that inxi changed something is wrong. dmidecode told it whatever speed inxi reported, inxi doesn't touch that particular part of ram data. There has been some speculation on my part whether the speeds reported by dmidecode refle...

Re: no compiler?

You want to keep allow update true, since inxi is always evolving and handling new changed situations. It is not a good choice for software to be frozen and unchanging, because the hardware kernels and os change. the gcc issue was one such change, introduced in kernel 5.8, a change in /proc/version ...

inxi/pinxi beta testers for 3.2 LVM and upgraded RAID etc

Note also, given how much of pinxi has been rewritten, it would be nice also to just have general testers bounce it around to see if they can find anything wrong, I think pretty much every feature has had code changed internally. If anyone wants to test the new pinxi features -L/--logical and enhanc...
