[SOLVED]inxi - Intention to upgrade package
« on: September 20, 2012, 09:32:53 PM »

This is an intention to upgrade inxi.tcz
A pm has been sent to maintainer and a  bug report posted.

As per the guidelines, I will now wait  a week to see if maintainer can respond etc.

package was uploaded to main mirror today. As per the info file, when you download-install it as onboot or suggest ondemand, the first thing to do is probably set your default colors. The command for that depends on whether you are in console (no graphics), terminal or irc client in console/X.

Code: [Select]
inxi -h (snip the color stuff only)

-c  Available color schemes. Scheme number is required. Color selectors run a color selector option
    prior to inxi starting which lets you set the config file value for the selection.
    Supported color schemes: 0-32 Example: inxi -c 11
    Color selectors for each type display (NOTE: irc and global only show safe color set):
    94 - Console, out of X
    95 - Terminal, running in X - like xTerm
    96 - Gui IRC, running in X - like Xchat, Quassel, Konversation etc.
    97 - Console IRC running in X - like irssi in xTerm
    98 - Console IRC not in  X
    99 - Global - Overrides/removes all settings. Setting specific removes global.

if you are not sure what you are in, run inxi -c99 or inxi -c 99

2) inxi can check what it finds.....try running

Code: [Select]
inxi --recommends

3) and pretending this information might be useful to know what I have set and not set, downloaded,tweaked etc I might run

Code: [Select]
inxi -v5

If you are concerned about your wired or wireless details, you can x out the mac details which is what I have done as example

The new dependency now shows labels and UUID in the partition snip

good luck
