Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

the site I mentioned that closed its data was some development stuff, it's not related to intel or amd etc, was just some website connected to some tech group or person, no idea whose it was/is, it just happened that they had datasets of raw data available, but then they closed it off at some point,...

Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

yes, I use that site, I think I mentioned it upthread, and a few others, for more legacy stuff. But it takes them a while usually to get the cpuid data, you won't generally see that on new cpus. Takes work. And for amd, they don't seem to show steppings, but I suspect that with one exception, amd do...

Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

By the way, model 55hex suffers a similar microarch / stepping issue, though so far I have not found any actual ambiguities, steppings 5-7 are cascade lake, stepping 8 and maybe > are cooper lake, allegedly, unconfirmed so far, it's too new, and pre 5 are skylake, also not confirmed, but it has to b...

Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

Keep in mind that whiskey/comet lake are the same, one of the model steppings IDs both of them, same model number, but other model IDs id each specifically and correctly. However, since inxi can't resolve Intel's internal psychological problems or failures [your comments roughly confirm that what we...

Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

Give pinxi a try: wget -O smxi.org/pinxi && chmod +x pinxi && ./pinxi -Cay or pinxi -U if you already have pinxi installed. I've used the latest data available, so many IDs are now either clearly ambiguous and tell you what the choices are, and to check, or are updated to latest know...

Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

kaby lake can be different IDs, actually, the IDs have been updated, so can Whiskey Lake, at least, which can be whiskey or comet lake, sigh. elsif ( $model =~ /^(8E)$/ ) { # can be AmberL or KabyL if ($stepping == 9){ $arch = 'Amber/Kaby Lake'; $note = $check;} elsif ($stepping == 10){ $arch = 'Cof...

Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

I think all the links you posted, which I added to the inxi docs/inxi-resources.txt doc file since, why not? actually confirm that the methods I ended up using were and are pretty much the only ways to do it. I've added, in pinxi, current version, the modifier note: check for certain known ambiguous...

Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

hah, I finally realized how to deal with this issue!!! I already use this in RAM memory report, where if inxi knows there might be ambiguities, or that it made up the data and it might be wrong, it adds note: check or note: est. to let the user know the information may not be right, not to fully tru...

Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

As an aside, zen 3 has its own AMD family ID [19], and there's a chinese licensed zen that has its own family as well, 18, so technically, if it's that family, it's a zen 3, at least that's the data so far I have. Zen, Zen+, and Zen 2 are all family 17. There's one case where a Zen and a Zen+ have t...

Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

Note that I have no interest in taking on another endless data collection task where I can't find the data, as noted, I use an excellent disk string source, that gives me endless new variants without my having to go out and look for them, though I do have to look up each unhandled variant to see wha...

Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

64bitguy, I didn't take your post the wrong, way, you noticed something that had a real backstory that would not be obvious to normal users not well versed in the actual code, so I thought I'd help fill in the actual story. I believe though I'm not positive that inxi is one of very few, if not the o...

Re: Kaby Lake vs Amber Lake Hardware Mismatch Mint 20

It's because Intel has HORRIBLE documentation and use really weird ways to assign which release architecture belongs to each cpu family, model, and stepping. Sometimes it's literally impossible to know if something is say kaby lake or some other lake because the cpu family, model, and stepping numbe...

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 --us...

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...
