Re: pinxi / inxi - new feature: --swap added as line item

I'm tentatively adding a single letter arg for --swap, -j at this point (I"m running out of letters, can't match it), so that you can type something like this. pinxi -jpa for example. Since swap use is pretty important overall, having a single letter arg option makes sense. I may also make --usb hav...

pinxi / inxi - new feature: --swap added as line item

Back when the initial pinxi > inxi process was being done, I collected many of the suggestions on this this github thread: https://github.com/smxi/inxi/issues/134 for future use. One of those is now somewhat done, adding in an explicit --swap Swap: item. This was initially a wo_Dogs suggestion, and ...

Re: Testers wanted: new inxi/pinxi feature, smartctl data in -D disk section

smurphos, that thread has possible solutions to your external drive issue. inxi won't be able to implement them, but it might explain why it stopped working for you, and possible manual methods to get smart reports again from the drive inside the usb enclosure. https://askubuntu.com/questions/637450...

Re: Testers wanted: new inxi/pinxi feature, smartctl data in -D disk section

smurphos, thanks for finding another smartctl error case, I'll add that, the unknown smartctl error is just a fallback in pinxi to let me know the error condition is not recognized. So far looks good, I'm probably going to adjust some of the levels to not show errors unless worsening values indicate...

Re: Testers wanted: new inxi/pinxi feature, smartctl data in -D disk section

Re -Cx, your inxi is probably out of date. Someone requested a few more default flags to add to the short flag list in -C. They were added, been in inxi for quite a while now.

You have to install smartctl (package smartmontools) to do the -Da test, note the error message there.

Testers wanted: new inxi/pinxi feature, smartctl data in -D disk section

The pinxi elves have been hard at work, there's a new feature, I'm still padding out the details, and of course, finding exceptions and random data output syntax, but overall it's going well. If you want to try this new feature, update or install pinxi (not inxi!): cd /usr/local/bin; wget -O pinxi s...

Re: USB 3.0 front hub ports not working Mint 19.2

Yes, stick a usb device into hub 9 or 11 then confirm it's actually not working. Also stick a usb device into the front ports you believe are not working and run inxi --usb -xxx again to see if it shows up, and under which hub. --usb -xxx makes these things easy to see, and also to see which usb rev...

Re: USB 3.0 front hub ports not working Mint 19.2

Just FYI, inxi since 2.9 has had --usb support, which is quite useful to debug usb issues like this, since it digs into the system and lets you know quite a bit about the usb stuff going on. Seems that mint users haven't picked up on this feature. inxi -xxx --usb -y80 USB: Hub: 1-0:1 info: Full spee...

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...

it already does that, re telling you you need root permissions to do certain things.

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...
