PostPosted: Sun 26 Jun 2011, 21:39    Post_subject:  video-info-glx 1.5.3 (previously known as report-video-glx)
Sub_title: Graphics interface and CPU summary
 

Video Info GLX

Summary report:
Distro, kernel, architecture

Display adapter model, manufacturer & product codes

Xserver and current Driver

X.org version

Current resolution and depth

Direct Rendering status

GLX and OpenGL vendor and versions

CPU model and current core speeds

All in one screen and recorded to text file /tmp/root/video-info-glx

Most useful when X is running, though video-info-glx also works from the console when X is not running--when current resolution and OpenGL status is not available.

Simple bash script. OpenGL data reported if glxinfo is present and X is running. Resolution data gleaned from xdpyinfo or fallback to xrandr.

Based on http://www.free3d.org/#hardware_benchmarks, report-video by BarryK, pcpufreq by Iguleder

Bugs
If a report indicates 'Driver: unknown', I would like to correct that. You can help by gzipping (or renaming to Xlog.gz) and attaching to a PM to me the associated X log, /var/log/Xorg.0.log, or the output of sys-info, which generates a more complete view of the system and saves it to a gzipped archive, ready for posting.

One report of X crash, probably only if glxinfo is present, but Mesa GLX libraries and/or DRI modules aren't available. Workaround: use video-info / sys-info instead.

The 0.4 does not work with puppy 4.2.1. It claims that Xorg is not running.

Glxgears and glxinfo works fine and reports: direct rendering: yes

With kind regards

Hi Jan,
Can you paste this into a terminal window please:
Code:
ps -eo comm | grep ^X
readlink /usr/bin/X
which xdpyinfo
which xrandr
which glxinfo
glxinfo 2>/dev/null | grep -E -A2 "direct rendering|OpenGL vendor" | grep -v '\-\-'
and paste the output here so that I can modify the script.

Thank you,
TazOC

Hi tazoc, hehehe your a bit too late or I'm too fast - I have moved to Wary 5.1.3 and here the script works:) Actually allot of things work better than in 4.2.1 - and some things are missing.

I have a rule that if I have tried to get something to work for 1 month then I move on:)

But I will see if it can be done with the livecd:)


With kind regards

Jan

No problem, I should have a CD of 4.x around here somewhere... if anyone else would like this tweaked for a specific Pup version, let us know. Glad to hear that it works in Wary. Smile

Have a nice weekend,
TazOC

In Slacko 531, I installed the ati_fglrx-11.8.pet downloaded from Slickpet>Drivers>Test your graphics card, and the ATI Catalyst Control Center reported working, but your report-video-glx ver 0.6 still showed the driver as vesa.
However,glxinfo in console is correct and gkxgears running OK. My graphics card is Radeon HD5450 (and not 5430 as report-video stated)

PenguinPupLin,
If the latest version still reports incorrect driver, please gzip /var/log/Xorg.0.log and attach it to a reply or use sys-info for the same.
