Latest version now: 1.4.86
New options: -n
shows an additional line of information for user network cards, the interface id, like: eth0, status up/down, speed, mac address, duplex mode.
This can help in especially non X situations to verify what actual connection is present, if any.
This is a new feature so it probably won't work for all scenarios, especially usb wifi I suspect, but we'll get that debugged as we get more user feedback, that's why this release is 1.4.86, not 1.5.0
Also, -Gx now shows the graphics card pci busID, also useful for debugging misconfigured xorg.conf files or whatever.
A new option allows users to pick from one of about 30 color schemes, this is started by running inxi in terminal, with -c 94 to 99 options, like so: inxi -c 98
This runs what is basically a color picker for the schemes, then writes them to user config files.
Code: Select all
-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: 0-30 Example: inxi -c 11
Supported color selectors: 94 (console, no X); 95 (terminal, X); 96 (irc, X);
97 (irc, X, in terminal); 98 (irc, no X); 99 (global).
-n Show Advanced Network card information. Same as -Nnx. Shows interface, speed, mac id, state, etc.
I also fixed the inxi updater, inxi -U, now it's more robust and less prone to failures, and has better exit error messages to let the user know what to do to fix the problem depending on the cause.
