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. Try it. $ pinxi -m Memory: RAM: total: 31.43 GiB used: 8.06 GiB (25.6%) RA...

New inxi test, usb without lsusb, using /sys

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...

I don't check these forums that often, just now and then at random. Re webcams, you can imagine my surprise when I discovered t...

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 ...

Re: Why upgrade inxi?

inxi 3.0.16 will be rushed out soon too, I discovered a significant bug with LXQt version detection, it was popping open a gui dialogue, sigh, which is new behavior, I've broken down now and installed most of the wm on a vm so I can verify these detections, which are very tricky to do.

Re: inxi -G error driver on graphic card

There is no logical conflict between the multi driver, unloaded, failed: values here, just FYI. If I were to guess, I'd guess that the intention here is to use nvidia non free, but modesetting has not been disabled in grub, a new initramfs was not generated, and the kernel is booting with these free...

inxi 3.0.15 was done yesterday, should be in unit193 ppa, debian, and ubuntu repos fairly soon. Contains all the fixes etc, updates, enhancements. As an aside, for new issues, it's best to post on https://github.com/smxi/inxi because I only check distro forums at a sort of random interval. Plus I wo...

Re: Why upgrade inxi?

Try just explaining in your own words what this information tells you, and why it matters. The more words the better. When I'm basically totally ignorant about something, I have to have some understanding of it to get a feel for what it can be as a feature. By the way, congratulations, while testing...

Re: inxi 3.0.14 tells "nouveau" unloaded, inxi 2.3.56 says "loaded"

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...

Re: Why upgrade inxi?

gm10, I've added the vdpau item to https://github.com/smxi/inxi/issues/134 ongoing issues because I think I need to see a wider range of data for that feature before adding it. I also need to actually understand it more in terms of what that data is actually telling us.

Re: inxi 3.0.14 tells "nouveau" unloaded, inxi 2.3.56 says "loaded"

Or should I make it 'suggested:' ? hmm. The advantage of --admin is I can explain it in man page, and one assumes admin type users are able to read the explanation. I don't even want to hint that, say, an nvidia is 'suggested' when 'nouveau' is present, for example. That's not appropriate at all.

Re: inxi 3.0.14 tells "nouveau" unloaded, inxi 2.3.56 says "loaded"

I've added this as an --admin -G option, the second --admin feature option! However, I do completely disagree because I view this as so utterly impossible to explain to average users that they would inevitably have to assume they are missing a driver, or that their missing driver failed, or that som...

Re: inxi 3.0.14 tells "nouveau" unloaded, inxi 2.3.56 says "loaded"

Heh, I thought we might disagree. What's actually going on is Xorg is assigning two separate meanings to Failed. Technically, for every roughly 1 or 2 loaded drivers, there are about 40 unloaded ones, that is, ones that could exist, but are not loaded. Possibly much more if you could the ARM SOC gpu...

Re: inxi 3.0.14 tells "nouveau" unloaded, inxi 2.3.56 says "loaded"

No, it's not a driver that failed, it's a driver that doesn't exist. It's largely irrelevant that a non existing driver fails. For example, on an nvidia card, if you use nouveau, and don't have nvidia driver, it's not relevant that xorg has a preset list of drivers to test for that vendor, the only ...

Re: inxi 3.0.14 tells "nouveau" unloaded, inxi 2.3.56 says "loaded"

Because they are fallback drivers that could be used, and are present in the system, and do load. Same rough reason that the drivers that are tested, but do not exist in the system, are not shown, those simply were random drivers loaded, tested, then removed since they didn't exist. Same reason to s...
