PostPosted: Sat 02 Oct 2010, 03:34    Post subject:  sys-info 1.5.2
Subject description: System Information & Video Info GUI / CL Tools
 

sys-info + video-info
LHP sys-info gathers configuration data from many sources, all into one file. Use it to get under the hood and learn about your Puppy-based system or establish a baseline for future comparison. Can be launched from the System menu. GUI has buttons to scan/refresh, launch HardInfo, PupSysInfo, video-info, open report folder in the file manager and a Help dialog.

The scripts sys-info and video-info have a graphical interface and can also be started from the command line, when X isn't running. sys-info -cli | --nogui to generate a report without starting the gui. sys-info -q | --quiet to silently generate report file.

video-info -d | --driver to just output driver to CL and exit. Includes ifactive to quickly verify Internet connectivity. All three scripts install to /usr/sbin.

The same report is generated in text sys-info-yymmdd and gzipped sys-info-yymmdd.gz formats, for post attachment when requesting assistance on the Puppy Forum. Care was taken to avoid collecting personal data.

Report includes current window manager, system architecture, kernel command line, uptime, load avg, # tasks, memory, extra SFS, user-installed Pets; bootinit, bootsysinit logs; video card and driver, xorg.conf, graphics log, processor, PCI and USB devices, PUPSTATE, probepart, df -h, .wh.* files in system dirs; versions of: kernel, Puppy, Xorg, CUPS, ROX-Filer, JWM, IceWM, Xfce, Samba. Based on report-video by Barry Kauler.

Designed for any Puppy-based Distro. Tested on Slacko 5.4.0.5, Lucid 5.28, Fatdog64-611 and Lighthouse 64 6.00. Sample output attached below (some reports are from an earlier release.)

Companion video-info-glx is available in a separate Pet, for Pups with mesa or proprietary video drivers installed:

TaZoC, can not wait to try this . . . many thanks . . . Smile

In ye olde days it just seemed that Puppy development was so fast that as soon as I thought, 'that would be a nice feature', it was implemented . . .

Today I proposed a puppy rating system (similar to HP but based on Huskys)

. . . you seem to have done it Cool

Puppy Linux
Faster than you thought

Thank you for attaching the report, Lobster.

Looks like the report-video section in LHP_sys-info needs some tweaking; the output shows vesa driver, but the Xorg log indicates fglrx! Surprised

I will work on that,
TaZoC

tazoc:

Many thanks for this latest utility. A report is attached and a couple of things puzzle me.

1. === probepart ===

/dev/sda1|ntfs|164249600
/dev/sdb1|vfat|30654400
/dev/sdb2|ext4|622592
/dev/sdc|none|0
/dev/sdd|none|0
/dev/sde|none|0
/dev/sr0|none|2097150
What is the value on the sr0 line given that there is no media in the drive? -I did check Smile

2. === whiteout(.wh.*) files in /bin /etc /lib /sbin /usr ===

/pup_ro1/etc/modprobe.d/.wh.nouveau.conf
/pup_ro2/etc/.wh.esd.conf.new
/pup_ro2/etc/.wh.mke2fs.conf.new
/pup_ro2/etc/.wh.nscd.conf.new
/pup_ro2/etc/cups/.wh.cupsd.conf.default.new
/pup_ro2/etc/cups/.wh.cupsd.conf.new
/pup_ro2/etc/cups/.wh.snmp.conf.new
etc

Should the search not be for say *white*

3. === xdriinfo ===

libGL is too old.

Does 01micko know about this? - Slacko 5.3.3.2 with mesa inbuilt.

Just a report in Racy 5.2.2 if you need it. I just installed version 0.9.

I usually use H2's and Trash's inxi script instead in my Puppy installs.

I don't know, I'm getting the same value here. Confused

Those are files that begin with '.wh.', which enable hiding of deleted files from read-only layers of the layered file system. They are ordinarily invisible to the user, but noting their presence can be useful when trouble-shooting.

Does 01micko know about this? - Slacko 5.3.3.2 with mesa inbuilt.
I have removed xdriinfo from latest sys-info as it may be outdated and is architecture dependent. report-video-glx is more reliable for systems with mesa or proprietary drivers.
