Re: [SOLVED] inxi

Code: Select all

inxi -zwv8
that's easier to type. That's everything, including weather, and the z filters out serials, ips, mac addresses, and a few other things.

Never, ever, use automated -w commands with inxi, that is, NEVER run it on a schedule, if you do, you'll be banned from the service forever.

Re: "System Info" utility very limited in Mint 19. No "Hardware Manager"?

Yes, you're right, -x 3 does in fact work. I forgot, in perl option handling, if the long form accepts extra values, so does the short form. I just wouldn't use that since in general the reason to use -x is so you can pile up the options: -Fxxz and so on. If you number it, you have to put the x last...

Re: HDMI not found

inxi 2.2.xx is too old to reliably show drivers for such scenarios, these issues were all resolved in the 3.x version. While most cases are right in the 2.2 version, not all are, particularly not cases where you have different graphics types, intel, nvidia, etc, on one system. 3.x shows the driver i...

Re: "System Info" utility very limited in Mint 19. No "Hardware Manager"?

unfortunately, as useful as the above commands are, they are ONLY available in certain releases of Linux. Latest inxi is available always on all flavors of linux, except maybe the slackware based puppy, which uses a stripped down perl. inxi -Sx3 is not a valid option in any inxi, ever. So that woul...

Re: "System Info" utility very limited in Mint 19. No "Hardware Manager"?

I know it offers more commandline options than anybody will very likely ever be able to remember. Except for its developer maybe. Sad to say, the developer also can't remember all of them either ;), though I do know that -v8 triggers basically all the sysinfo options. Most of the options were in re...

Re: "System Info" utility very limited in Mint 19. No "Hardware Manager"?

If you want to see all the inxi data, do, as root or sudo: sudo inxi -v8 If you want it saved to a text file, do: sudo inxi -v8 > /path/to/your/file.txt When coming from windows, it's useful to not look for exact duplicates, but rather to see if there are standard ways of doing what you want in GNU/...

Re: inxi output: no code tags, please!

it's easier to do inxi [options] -y 80, the output gets weird at less than 80 I found. fmt is a neat trick though, never seen that one. Plus piping will drop the colors unless you specify a specific color via -c I do tend to wince though when very wide screened outputs are pasted into forum code box...

Re: inxi output: no code tags, please!

To make inxi output readable, just use the -y width option: inxi [options] -y 80 Note that legacy inxi (pre 3.x) line width handling was really crude and hacked, so it's narrow width handlers weren't very reliable. This makes a nice what I consider 'forum friendly' output. Note that inxi will do thi...

Re: Mint Beta testers for the new inxi Perl release requested

it already does that, re telling you you need root permissions to do certain things. You can't put in a password via a program like this as far as I know, nor do I want to go there, it's the user who should do that, not inxi.

The development branch of inxi, pinxi, now has support for no lsusb usb data, using /sys, which will apply to -A, -N, and --usb. Blame or thank gm10 for these new features, who requested this set of changes. Devices I do not have: printers, usb wifi, more than 1 daisy chained usb hubs (could of swor...

Re: Kernel 4.15.0-29 update Crashes LM 18.2 Cinnamon

You can get two drivers active as far as Xorg is concerned, I see that all the time, for example, ati,radeon. When a driver in inxi is listed as a driver, it means it was loaded, and did not get unloaded, and did not fail. I don't actually know how xorg thinks about this internally, since it's quite...

Re: Kernel 4.15.0-29 update Crashes LM 18.2 Cinnamon

To be precise, X.org or something related to it got a bug that double loaded drivers, and inxi pre version 3.0 had failed to handle that scenario/bug, since it should never have happened. As noted, inxi now works around this bug in X.org or whatever is creating that double loaded driver situation. T...

Re: Why upgrade inxi?

Thanks for confirming, inxi must have been on github longer than I thought. I double checked, and yes, the download/update urls were github, so it will work, I could have sworn 2.2 was on googlecode, with googlecode update urls. So mint users are in general safe unless they are using the ancient 1.9...

Re: Why upgrade inxi?

Technically speaking, the /etc/inxi.conf file can have other values in it than the upgrade block item. However, most user configurations, or root, would be in the user/root configuration files (like colors, etc), not the master /etc/inxi.conf file. But as far as I know, most distros do not add much ...

There is no logical conflict between the multi driver, unloaded, failed: values here, just FYI.

gm10, after thinking about it, and seeing a clear example where this data could be of use, re alternate drivers, I've switched the name of the missing driver to 'alternate:', and made it an -xx option. I had to think about it, but I have come to agree with you about the possible value of such a feat...
