       inxi [-x|-xx|-xxx|-a] -OPTION(s)

       All short form options have long form variants - see below for  these  and  more  advanced


       inxi  is  a  command  line system information script built for console and IRC. It is also
       used a debugging tool for forum technical  support  to  quickly  ascertain  users'  system
       configurations  and  hardware.  inxi  shows  system hardware, CPU, drivers, Xorg, Desktop,
       Kernel, gcc version(s),  Processes,  RAM  usage,  and  a  wide  variety  of  other  useful

       inxi  output varies depending on whether it is being used on CLI or IRC, with some default
       filters and color options applied only for IRC use.  Script colors can be  turned  off  if
       desired  with  -c  0, or changed using the -c color options listed in the STANDARD OPTIONS
       section below.


       In order to maintain basic privacy and security, inxi used on  IRC  automatically  filters
       out  your  network  device  MAC  address, WAN and LAN IP, your /home username directory in
       partitions, and a few other items.

       Because inxi is often used on forums for support, you can also trigger this filtering with
       the  -z  option (-Fz, for example). To override the IRC filter, you can use the -Z option.
       This can be useful in debugging network connection issues online in a  private  chat,  for


       Options can be combined if they do not conflict. You can either group the letters together
       or separate them.

       Letters with numbers can have no gap or a gap at your discretion, except when  using   -t.
       Note  that if you use an option that requires an additional argument, that must be last in
       the short form group of options. Otherwise you can use those separately as well.

       For example: inxi -AG | inxi -A -G | inxi -b | inxi -c10 | inxi -FxxzJy90 | inxi -bay

       Note that all the short form options have long form equivalents, which are  listed  below.
       However, usually the short form is used in examples in order to keep things simple.


       -A, --audio
              Show Audio/sound card(s) information, including card driver.

       -b, --basic
              Show basic output, short form. Same as: inxi -v 2

       -B, --battery
              Show  system  battery  (ID-x)  data,  charge, condition, plus extra information (if
              battery present). Uses /sys or, for BSDs without systctl battery  data,  dmidecode.
              dmidecode  does  not  have  very  much  information, and none about current battery
              state/charge/voltage. Supports multiple batteries when using /sys data.

              Note that for charge, the output shows the current charge, as well as its value  as
              a  percentage of the available capacity, which can be less than the original design
              capacity. In the following example, the actual current available  capacity  of  the
              battery is 22.2 Wh.

              charge: 20.1 Wh 95.4%

              The  condition  item  shows  the  remaining  available  capacity  / original design
              capacity, and then this figure as a percentage of original  capacity  available  in
              the battery.

              condition: 22.2/36.4 Wh (61%)

              With  -x  shows  attached Device-x information (mouse, keyboard, etc.)  if they are
              battery powered.

       -c, --color [0-42]
              Set color scheme. If no scheme number is supplied, 0 is assumed.

       -c [94-99]

              These color selectors run a color selector option  prior  to  inxi  starting  which
              lets you set the config file value for the selection.

              NOTE:  All  configuration file set color values are removed when output is piped or
              redirected. You must use the explicit runtime -c <color number> option if you  want
              color codes to be present in the piped/redirected output.

              Color  selectors  for  each type display (NOTE: IRC and global only show safe color

       -c 94  - Console, out of X.

       -c 95  - Terminal, running in X - like xTerm.

       -c 96  - GUI IRC, running in X - like XChat, Quassel, Konversation etc.

       -c 97  - Console IRC running in X - like irssi in xTerm.

       -c 98  - Console IRC not in  X.

       -c 99  - Global - Overrides/removes all settings.

              Setting a specific color type removes the global color selection.

       -C, --cpu
              Show full CPU output,  including  per  CPU  clock  speed  and  CPU  max  speed  (if
              available).   If max speed data present, shows (max) in short output formats (inxi,
              inxi -b) if actual CPU speed matches max CPU speed. If max CPU speed does not match
              actual  CPU  speed,  shows  both actual and max speed information.  See -x for more

              For certain CPUs (some ARM, and AMD Zen family) shows CPU die count.

              The details for each CPU include a technical description e.g. type: MT MCP

              * MT - Multi/Hyper Threaded CPU, more than 1 thread per core (previously HT).

              * MCM - Multi Chip Model (more than 1 die per CPU).

              * MCP - Multi Core Processor (more than 1 core per CPU).

              * SMP - Symmetric Multi Processing (more than 1 physical CPU).

              * UP - Uni (single core) Processor.

              Note that min/max: speeds are not necessarily true in cases of overclocked CPUs  or
              CPUs in turbo/boost mode. See -Ca for alternate base/boost: speed data.

       -d, --disk-full,--optical
              Show optical drive data as well as -D hard drive data. With -x, adds a feature line
              to the output. Also shows floppy disks if present. Note that there  is  no  current
              way to get any information about the floppy device that we are aware of, so it will
              simply show the floppy ID without any extra data. -xx adds a few more features.

       -D, --disk
              Show Hard Disk info. Shows total disk space and  used  percentage.  The  disk  used
              percentage includes space used by swap partition(s), since those are not usable for
              data storage. Note that with RAID disks, the percentage will  be  wrong  since  the
              total  is computed from the disk sizes, but used is computed from mounted partition
              used percentages. This small  defect  may  get  corrected  in  the  future.   Also,
              unmounted  partitions  are  not  counted  in disk use percentages since inxi has no
              access to the used amount.

              Also shows per disk information: Disk ID, type (if present), vendor (if  detected),
              model,  and  size. See Extra Data Options (-x options) and Admin Extra Data Options
              (--admin options) for many more features.

       --filter, --filter-override - See -z, -Z.

              Filter partition label names  from  -j,  -o,  -p,  -P,  and  -Sa  (root=LABEL=...).
              Generally only useful in very specialized cases.

              Filter partition UUIDs from -j, -o, -p, -P, and -Sa (root=UUID=...). Generally only
              useful in very specialized cases.

       -f, --flags
              Show all CPU flags used, not just the short list. Not shown with  -F  in  order  to
              avoid spamming. ARM CPUs: show features items.

       -F, --full
              Show  Full  output  for  inxi. Includes all Upper Case line letters except -W, plus
              --swap, -s and -n. Does not show extra verbose options such as -d -f -i -l -m -o -p
              -r -t -u -x unless you use those arguments in the command, e.g.: inxi -Frmxx

       -G, --graphics
              Show  Graphic  card(s)  information,  including  details  of  card and card driver,
              display protocol (if available), display server (and/or Wayland compositor), vendor
              and version number, e.g.:

              Display: x11 server: Xorg 1.15.1

              If protocol is not detected, shows:

              Display: server: Xorg 1.15.1

              Also  shows  screen  resolution(s)  (per monitor/X screen), OpenGL renderer, OpenGL
              core profile version/OpenGL version.

              Compositor information will show if detected using -xx option or always if detected
              and Wayland.

       -h, --help
              The  help  menu.  Features  dynamic  sizing to fit into terminal window. Set script
              global COLS_MAX_CONSOLE if you want a different default value, or use -y <width> to
              temporarily override the defaults or actual window width.

       -i, --ip
              Show  WAN  IP  address and local interfaces (latter requires ifconfig or ip network
              tool), as well as network output from -n.  Not shown  with  -F  for  user  security
              reasons.  You  shouldn't  paste your local/WAN IP. Shows both IPv4 and IPv6 link IP

       -I, --info
              Show Information: processes, uptime, memory, IRC client (or shell type  if  run  in
              shell,  not  IRC), inxi version. See -Ix, -Ixx, and -Ia for extra information (init
              type/version, runlevel, packages).

              Note: if -m is used or triggered, the memory item will show  in  the  main  Memory:
              report of -m, not in Info:.

              Rasberry  Pi  only:  uses vcgencmd get_mem gpu to get gpu RAM amount, if user is in
              video group and vcgencmd is installed. Uses this result  to  increase  the  Memory:
              amount and used: amounts.

       -j, --swap
              Shows all active swap types (partition, file, zram). When this option is used, swap
              partition(s) will not show on the -P line to avoid redundancy.

       -J, --usb
              Show USB data for attached Hubs and Devices. Hubs also show number  of  ports.   Be
              aware  that a port is not always external, some may be internal, and either used or
              unused (for example, a motherboard USB header connector that is not used).

              Hubs and Devices are listed in order of BusID.

              BusID is generally in this format: BusID-port[.port][.port]:DeviceID

              Device ID is a number created by the kernel,  and  has  no  necessary  ordering  or
              sequence  connection,  but  can be used to match this output to lsusb values, which
              generally shows BusID / DeviceID (except for tree view, which shows ports).

              Examples: Device-3: 4-3.2.1:2 or Hub: 4-0:1

              The rev: 2.0 item refers to the USB revision number, like 1.0 or 3.1.

       -l, --label
              Show partition labels. Default: main partitions -P. For full -p output, use: -pl.

       -m, --memory
              Memory (RAM) data. Does not display with  -b or  -F unless you use  -m  explicitly.
              Ordered  by  system  board  physical  system  memory array(s) (Array-[number]), and
              individual memory devices (Device-[number]).  Physical  memory  array   data  shows
              array  capacity,  number  of  devices  supported, and Error Correction information.
              Devices shows locator data (highly variable in  syntax),  size,  speed,  type  (eg:
              type: DDR3).

              Note:  -m  uses  dmidecode,  which  must  be run as root (or start inxi with sudo),
              unless you figure out how to set up sudo to permit dmidecode to  read  /dev/mem  as
              user. speed and bus width will not show if No Module Installed is found in size.

              Note:  If -m is triggered RAM total/used report will appear in this section, not in
              -I or -tm items.

              Because dmidecode data is extremely unreliable, inxi will try to make best guesses.
              If  you  see  (check)  after  the  capacity  number,  you  should check it with the
              specifications. (est) is slightly more reliable, but you  should  still  check  the
              real  specifications  before buying RAM. Unfortunately there is nothing inxi can do
              to get truly reliable data about the system RAM; maybe one day the kernel devs will
              put  this  data into /sys, and make it real data, taken from the actual system, not
              dmi data. For most people, the data will be right, but a significant percentage  of
              users will have either a wrong max module size, if present, or max capacity.

              See --memory-modules and --memory-short if you want a shorter report.

              Memory  (RAM)  data. Show only RAM arrays and modules in Memory report.  Skip empty
              slots. See -m.

              Memory (RAM) data. Show a one line RAM report in Memory. See -m.

              Sample: Report: arrays: 1 slots: 4 modules: 2 type: DDR4

       -M, --machine
              Show machine data. Device, Motherboard, BIOS, and if present, System Builder  (Like
              Lenovo).   Older  systems/kernels  without the required /sys data can use dmidecode
              instead, run as root. If using dmidecode, may also show BIOS/UEFI revision as  well
              as  version.   --dmidecode forces use of dmidecode data instead of /sys.  Will also
              attempt to show if the system was booted by  BIOS,  UEFI,  or  UEFI  [Legacy],  the
              latter being legacy BIOS boot mode in a system board using UEFI.

              Device  information  requires either /sys or dmidecode. Note that 'other-vm?'  is a
              type that means it's usually a VM,  but  inxi  failed  to  detect  which  type,  or
              positively   confirm   which   VM   it   is.   Primary  VM  identification  is  via
              systemd-detect-virt but fallback tests that should also support some BSDs are used.
              Less  commonly  used  or harder to detect VMs may not be correctly detected. If you
              get an incorrect output, post an issue and we'll get it fixed if possible.

              Due to unreliable vendor data, device type will show:  desktop,  laptop,  notebook,
              server, blade, plus some obscure stuff that inxi is unlikely to ever run on.

       -n, --network-advanced
              Show  Advanced  Network card information in addition to that produced by -N.  Shows
              interface, speed, MAC ID, state, etc.

       -N, --network
              Show Network card(s) information, including card driver. With -x, shows PCI  BusID,
              Port number.

       -o, --unmounted
              Show unmounted partition information (includes UUID and LABEL if available).  Shows
              file system type if you have lsblk installed (Linux only). For BSD/GNU Linux: shows
              file  system type if file is installed, and if you are root or if you have added to
              /etc/sudoers (sudo v. 1.7 or newer):

              <username> ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/file (sample)

              Does not show components (partitions that create  the  md-raid  array)  of  md-raid

       -p, --partitions-full
              Show full Partition information (-P plus all other detected mounted partitions).

       -P, --partitions
              Show basic Partition information.  Shows, if detected: / /boot /home /opt /tmp /usr
              /usr/home /var /var/tmp /var/log.   If  --swap  is  not  used,  shows  active  swap
              partitions  (never  shows  file  or  zram  type  swap).   Use -p to see all mounted

       --processes - See -t

       -r, --repos
              Show distro repository data. Currently supported repo types:

              APK (Alpine Linux + derived versions)

              APT (Debian, Ubuntu + derived versions, as well  as  RPM  based  APT  distros  like
              PCLinuxOS or Alt-Linux)

              CARDS (NuTyX + derived versions)

              EOPKG (Solus)

              PACMAN (Arch Linux, KaOS + derived versions)

              PACMAN-G2 (Frugalware + derived versions)

              PISI (Pardus + derived versions)

              PORTAGE (Gentoo, Sabayon + derived versions)

              PORTS (OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD + derived OS types)

              SLACKPKG (Slackware + derived versions)

              TCE (TinyCore)

              URPMI (Mandriva, Mageia + derived versions)

              XBPS (Void)

              YUM/ZYPP (Fedora, Red Hat, Suse + derived versions)

              More  will be added as distro data is collected. If yours is missing please show us
              how to get this information and we'll try to add it.

              See -rx, -rxx, and -ra for installed package count information.

       -R, --raid
              Show RAID data. Shows RAID devices, states, levels and components, and  extra  data
              with -x / -xx.

              md-raid: If device is resyncing, also shows resync progress line.

              Note: Only md-raid and ZFS are currently supported. Other software RAID types could
              be added, but only if users supply all data required,  and  if  the  software  RAID
              actually can be made to give the required output.

              If  hardware RAID is detected, shows basic information. Due to complexity of adding
              hardware RAID device disk / RAID reports, those will only  be  added  if  there  is
              demand, and reasonable reporting tools.

              Checks  inxi  application dependencies and recommends, as well as directories, then
              shows what package(s) you need to install to add support for each feature.

       -s, --sensors
              Show output  from  sensors  if  sensors  installed/configured:  Motherboard/CPU/GPU
              temperatures;  detected  fan  speeds.  GPU temperature when available. Nvidia shows
              screen number for multiple screens. IPMI sensors are also used (root  required)  if
              present. See Advanced options --sensors-use or --sensors-exclude if you want to use
              only a subset of all sensors, or exclude one.

              Show PCI slots with type, speed, and status information.

       --swap - See -j

       -S, --system
              Show System information: host name, kernel, desktop environment (if in X),  distro.
              With -xx show dm - or startx - (only shows if present and running if out of X), and
              if in X, with -xxx show more desktop info, e.g. taskbar or panel.

       -t, --processes
              [c|m|cm|mc NUMBER] Show processes. If no arguments, defaults to cm.  If followed by
              a number, shows that number of processes for each type (default: 5; if in IRC, max:

              Make sure that there is no space between letters and  numbers  (e.g.  write  as  -t

       -t c   - CPU only. With -x, also shows memory for that process on same line.

       -t m   -  memory  only.  With -x, also shows CPU for that process on same line.  If the -I
              line is not triggered, will also show the system RAM used/total information.

       -t cm  - CPU+memory. With -x, shows also CPU or memory for that process on same line.

       -u, --uuid
              Show partition UUIDs. Default: main partitions -P. For full -p output, use: -pu.

       -U, --update
              Note - Maintainer may have disabled this function.

              If inxi -h has no listing for -U then it's disabled.

              Auto-update script. Note: if you installed as root, you must  be  root  to  update,
              otherwise   user   is   fine.   Also   installs   /   updates  this  man  page  to:
              /usr/local/share/man/man1 (if /usr/local/share/man/ exists AND there is no inxi man
              page  in  /usr/share/man/man1,  otherwise  it  goes  to  /usr/share/man/man1). This
              requires that you be root to write to that directory.  See  --man  or  --no-man  to
              force or disable man install.

       --usb - See -J

       -V, --version
              inxi version information. Prints information then exits.

       -v, --verbosity
              Script  verbosity  levels.  If  no  verbosity  level number is given, 0 is assumed.
              Should not be used with -b or -F.

              Supported levels: 0-8 Examples : inxi -v 4  or  inxi -v4

       -v 0   - Short output, same as: inxi

       -v 1   - Basic verbose, -S + basic CPU (cores, type, clock speed, and min/max  speeds,  if
              available) + -G + basic Disk + -I.

       -v 2   -  Adds  networking card (-N), Machine (-M) data, Battery (-B) (if available). Same
              as: inxi -b

       -v 3   - Adds advanced CPU (-C) and network (-n) data; triggers -x advanced data option.

       -v 4   - Adds partition size/used data (-P) for (if present): / /home /var/  /boot.  Shows
              full disk data (-D)

       -v 5   -  Adds  audio card (-A), memory/RAM (-m), sensors (-s), partition label (-l), UUID
              (-u), full swap data (-j), and short form of optical drives.

       -v 6   - Adds full mounted partition data (-p), unmounted  partition  data  (-o),  optical
              drive data (-d), USB (-J); triggers -xx extra data option.

       -v 7   - Adds network IP data (-i); triggers -xxx

       -v 8   -  All  system  data  available.  Adds  Repos  (-r), PCI slots (--slots), processes
              (-tcm), admin (--admin). Useful for testing output and to see what data you can get
              from your system.

       -w, --weather
              Adds weather line. To get weather for an alternate location, use -W [location]. See
              also -x, -xx, -xxx options.  Please note that your  distribution's  maintainer  may
              chose to disable this feature.

              DO NOT USE THIS FEATURE FOR AUTOMATED WEATHER UPDATES! You will be blocked from any
              further access. This feature is not meant for widget type  weather  monitoring,  or
              Conky type use. It is meant to get weather when you need to see it, for example, on
              a remote server.

       -W, --weather-location <location_string>
              Get weather/time for an alternate location.  Accepts  postal/zip  code[,  country],
              city,state  pair,  or  latitude,longitude.  Note: city/country/state names must not
              contain spaces. Replace spaces with '+' sign. Don't place spaces around any commas.
              Postal  code is not reliable except for North America and maybe the UK.  Try postal
              codes with and without country code added. Note that  City,State  applies  only  to
              USA,  otherwise  it's  City,Country. If country name (english) does not work, try 2
              character country code (e.g. Spain: es; Great Britain: gb).

              See for current 2  letter  country

              Use only ASCII letters in city/state/country names.

              Examples:  -W 95623,us OR -W Boston,MA OR -W 45.5234,-122.6762 OR -W new+york,ny OR
              -W bodo,norway.

              DO NOT USE THIS FEATURE FOR AUTOMATED WEATHER UPDATES! Use  of  automated  queries,
              will  result  in  your access being blocked. If you try to work around the ban, you
              will be permanently banned from this service.

       --weather-source, --ws <unit>
              [1-9] Switches weather data source. Possible values are 1-9. 1-4 will generally  be
              active,  and  5-9  may  or  may  not be active, so check.  1 may not support city /
              country names with spaces (even if you use the + sign instead of space).  2  offers
              pretty good data, but may not have all small city names for -W.

              Please  note  that  the  data  sources are not static per value, and can change any
              time, or be removed, so always test to verify which source is being used  for  each
              value  if  that  is  important  to  you.  Data  sources  may be added or removed on
              occasions, so try each one and see which you prefer. If you get unsupported  source
              message, it means that number has not been implemented.

       --weather-unit <unit>
              [m|i|mi|im]  Sets weather units to metric (m), imperial (i), metric (imperial) (mi,
              default), imperial (metric) (im). If metric or imperial not found,sets  to  default
              value, or N/A.

       -y, --width [integer]
              This is an absolute width override which sets the output line width max.  Overrides
              COLS_MAX_IRC / COLS_MAX_CONSOLE globals, or the actual widths of the  terminal.  80
              is  the  minimum  width supported.  -1 removes width limits. 1 switches to a single
              indented key/value pair per line, and removes all long line  wrapping  (similar  to
              dmidecode output).

              If no integer value is given, sets width to default of 80.

              Examples: inxi -Fxx -y 130 or inxi -Fxxy or inxi -bay1

       -z, --filter
              Adds  security  filters  for  IP addresses, serial numbers, MAC, location (-w), and
              user home directory name. Removes Host:.  On by default for IRC clients.

       -Z, --filter-override
              Absolute override for output filters. Useful for debugging networking issues in IRC
              for example.


       These  options  can be triggered by one or more -x.  Alternatively, the -v options trigger
       them in the following way: -v 3 adds -x; -v 6 adds -xx; -v 7 adds -xxx

       These extra data triggers can be useful for getting more in-depth data on various options.
       They can be added to any long form option list, e.g.: -bxx or -Sxxx

       There are 3 extra data levels:

       -x, -xx, -xxx


       --extra 1, --extra 2, --extra 3

       The  following  details  show which lines / items display extra information for each extra
       data level.

       -x -A  - Adds (if available and/or relevant) vendor: item,  which  shows  specific  vendor
              [product] information.

              - Adds version/port(s)/driver version (if available) for each Audio device.

              - Adds PCI Bus ID/USB ID number of each Audio device.

       -x -B  - Adds vendor/model, battery status (if battery present).

              -   Adds  attached  battery  powered  peripherals  (Device-[number]:)  if  detected
              (keyboard, mouse, etc.).

       -x -C  - Adds bogomips on CPU (if available)

              - Adds boost: [enabled|disabled] if detected, aka turbo. Not  all  CPUs  have  this

              - Adds CPU Flags (short list). Use -f to see full flag/feature list.

              -  Adds  CPU microarchitecture + revision (e.g. Sandy Bridge, K8, ARMv8, P6, etc.).
              Only shows data if detected. Newer microarchitectures will have to be added as they
              appear, and require the CPU family ID and model ID.

              Examples: arch: Sandy Bridge rev: 2, arch: K8 rev.F+ rev: 2

       -x -d  -  Adds  more  items  to Features line of optical drive; dds rev version to optical

       -x -D  - Adds HDD temperature with disk data if you have hddtemp  installed,  if  you  are
              root or if you have added to /etc/sudoers (sudo v. 1.7 or newer):

              <username> ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/hddtemp (sample)

       -x -G  -  Adds  (if  available  and/or relevant) vendor: item, which shows specific vendor
              [product] information.

              - Adds direct rendering status.

              - Adds (for single GPU, nvidia driver) screen number that GPU is running on.

              - Adds PCI Bus ID/USB ID number of each Graphics card.

       -x -i  - Adds IP  v6  additional  scope  data,  like  Global,  Site,  Temporary  for  each

              Note  that there is no way we are aware of to filter out the deprecated IP v6 scope
              site/global temporary addresses from the output of ifconfig. The ip tool shows that

              ip-v6-temporary  -  (ip tool only), scope global temporary.  Scope global temporary
              deprecated is not shown

              ip-v6-global - scope global (ifconfig will show this for all types, global,  global
              temporary, and global temporary deprecated, ip shows it only for global)

              ip-v6-link - scope link (ip/ifconfig) - default for -i.

              ip-v6-site  - scope site (ip/ifconfig). This has been deprecated in IPv6, but still
              exists. ifconfig may show multiple site  values,  as  with  global  temporary,  and
              global temporary deprecated.

              ip-v6-unknown - unknown scope

       -x -I  -  Adds  current  init  system (and init rc in some cases, like OpenRC).  With -xx,
              shows init/rc version number, if available.

              - Adds default system gcc. With -xx, also show other installed gcc versions.

              - Adds current runlevel (not available with all init systems).

              - Adds total packages discovered in system. See -xx and -a for per package  manager
              types output. Moves to Repos if -rx.

              If  your  package  manager is not supported, please file an issue and we'll add it.
              That requires the full output of the query or  method  to  discover  all  installed
              packages  on  your  system,  as  well  of  course  as the command or method used to
              discover those.

              - If in shell (i.e. not in IRC client), adds shell version number, if available.

       -x -J (--usb)
              - For Devices, adds driver(s).

       -x -m, --memory-modules
              - If present, adds maximum memory module/device size in the Array line.  Only  some
              systems will have this data available. Shows estimate if it can generate one.

              - Adds device type in the Device line.

       -x -N  -  Adds  (if  available  and/or relevant) vendor: item, which shows specific vendor
              [product] information.

              - Adds version/port(s)/driver version (if available) for each Network card;

              - Adds PCI Bus ID/USB ID number of each Network card.

       -x -r  - Adds Package info. See -Ix

       -x -R  - md-raid: Adds second RAID Info line with extra data: blocks, chunk  size,  bitmap
              (if present). Resync line, shows blocks synced/total blocks.

              - Hardware RAID: Adds driver version, bus ID.

       -x -s  - Adds basic voltages: 12v, 5v, 3.3v, vbat (ipmi, lm-sensors if present).

       -x -S  - Adds Kernel gcc version.

              -  Adds  to Distro: base: if detected. System base will only be seen on a subset of
              distributions. The distro must be both derived from a parent distro (e.g. Mint from
              Ubuntu),  and explicitly added to the supported distributions for this feature. Due
              to the complexity of distribution identification,  these  will  only  be  added  as
              relatively solid methods are found for each distribution system base detection.

       -x -t (--processes)
              - Adds memory use output to CPU (-xt c), and CPU use to memory (-xt m).

       -x -w, -W
              - Adds humidity and barometric pressure.

              - Adds wind speed and direction.

       -xx -A - Adds vendor:product ID for each Audio device.

       -xx -B -  Adds  serial  number, voltage (if available). Note that volts shows the data (if
              available) as the voltage now / minimum design voltage.

       -xx -C - Adds L1 cache: and L3 cache: if either  are  available.  Requires  dmidecode  and

       -xx -D - Adds disk serial number.

              -  Adds  disk speed (if available). This is the theoretical top speed of the device
              as reported. This speed may be restricted by system board limits,  eg.   a  SATA  3
              drive  on  a  SATA  2  board  may  report SATA 2 speeds, but this is not completely
              consistent, sometimes a SATA 3 device on a SATA 2 board reports its design speed.

              NVMe drives: adds lanes, and (per direction) speed is calculated with lane speed  *
              lanes  *  PCIe overhead. PCIe 1 and 2 have data rates of GT/s * .8  = Gb/s (10 bits
              required to transfer 8 bits of data).  PCIe 3 and greater transfer data at  a  rate
              of GT/s * 128/130 * lanes = Gb/s (130 bits required to transfer 128 bits of data).

              For  a  PCIe  3 NVMe drive, with speed of 8 GT/s and 4 lanes (8GT/s * 128/130 * 4 =
              31.6 Gb/s):

              speed: 31.6 Gb/s lanes: 4

       -xx -G - Adds vendor:product ID of each Graphics card.

              - Adds Xorg compositor, if found (always shows for Wayland systems).

              - For free drivers, adds OpenGL compatibility version number  if   available.   For
              nonfree  drivers, the core version and compatibility versions are usually the same.

              v: 3.3 Mesa 11.2.0 compat-v: 3.0

              - If available, shows alternate: Xorg drivers. This means a driver on  the  default
              list of drivers Xorg automatically checks for the card, but which is not installed.
              For example, if you have nouveau driver, nvidia would show as alternate if  it  was
              not installed. Note that alternate: does NOT mean you should have it, it's just one
              of the drivers Xorg checks to see if is present and loaded when checking the  card.
              This  can  let  you  know  there  are  other driver options.  Note that if you have
              explicitly set the driver in xorg.conf, Xorg will not create this  automatic  check
              driver list.

              -  If  available,  shows Xorg dpi (s-dpi:) for the active Xorg Screen (not physical
              monitor). Note that the physical monitor dpi and the Xorg dpi are  not  necessarily
              the same thing, and can vary widely.

       -xx -I - Adds init type version number (and rc if present).

              - Adds other detected installed gcc versions (if present).

              - Adds system default runlevel, if detected. Supports Systemd/Upstart/SysVinit type

              - Shows Packages: counts by discovered package manager types. In cases where only 1
              type  had  results,  does  not  show total after Packages:. Does not show installed
              package managers wtih 0 packages. See -a for full output.  Moves to Repos if -rxx.

              - Adds parent program (or tty) that started shell, if not IRC client.

       -xx -j (--swap), -xx -p, -xx -P
              - Adds swap priority to each swap partition (for -P) used, and for all  swap  types
              (for -j).

       -xx -J (--usb)
              - Adds vendor:chip id.

       -xx -m, --memory-modules
              - Adds memory device Manufacturer.

              -  Adds   memory  device  Part  Number  (part-no:).  Useful  for  ordering  new  or
              replacement memory sticks etc. Part numbers are unique, particularly if you use the
              word memory in the search as well. With -xxx, also shows serial number.

              -  Adds  single/double  bank  memory,  if data is found. Note, this may not be 100%
              right all of the time since it depends on the order that data is found in dmidecode
              output for type 6 and type 17.

       -xx -M - Adds chassis information, if data is available. Also shows BIOS ROM size if using

       -xx -N - Adds vendor:product ID for each Network card.

       -xx -r - Adds Packages info. See -Ixx

       -xx -R - md-raid: Adds superblock (if present) and algorithm. If  resync,  shows  progress

              - Hardware RAID: Adds Chip vendor:product ID.

       -xx -s - Adds DIMM/SOC voltages, if present (ipmi only).

       -xx -S -  Adds  display  manager (dm) type, if present. If none, shows N/A.  Supports most
              known display managers, including gdm, gdm3, idm, kdm, lightdm,  lxdm,  mdm,  nodm,
              sddm, slim, tint, wdm, and xdm.

              -  Adds,  if  run  in  X,  window  manager type (wm), if available.  Not all window
              managers are supported. Some desktops support using more than one  window  manager,
              so  this  can  be  useful  to see what window manager is actually running.  If none
              found, shows nothing. Uses a less accurate fallback tool wmctrl if ps tests fail to
              find data.

              - Adds desktop toolkit (tk), if available (Xfce/KDE/Trinity).

       -xx --slots
              - Adds slot length.

       -xx -w, -W
              - Adds wind chill, heat index, and dew point, if available.

              -  Adds  cloud  cover,  rain,  snow,  or  precipitation (amount in previous hour to
              observation time), if available.

       -xxx -A
              - Adds, if present, serial number.

       -xxx -B
              - Adds battery chemistry (e.g. Li-ion), cycles (NOTE: there appears to be a problem
              with  the  Linux  kernel  obtaining the cycle count, so this almost always shows 0.
              There's nothing that can be  done  about  this  glitch,  the  data  is  simply  not
              available  as  of  2018-04-03),  location  (only  available  from dmidecode derived

              - Adds attached device rechargeable: [yes|no] information.

       -xxx -C
              - Adds CPU voltage and external  clock  speed  (this  is  the  motherboard  speed).
              Requires sudo/root and dmidecode.

       -xxx -D
              - Adds disk firmware revision number (if available).

              -  Adds disk partition scheme (in most cases), e.g. scheme: GPT. Currently not able
              to detect all schemes, but handles the most common, e.g. GPT or MBR.

              - Adds disk rotation speed (in some but not all cases), e.g.  rotation:  7200  rpm.
              Only  appears if detected (SSD drives do not have rotation speeds, for example). If
              none found, nothing shows. Not all disks report this speed, so  even  if  they  are
              spinnning, no data will show.

       -xxx -I
              - For Shell: adds (su|sudo|login) to shell name if present.

              - For Shell: adds default: shell if different from running shell, and default shell
              v:, if available.

              - For running in: adds (SSH) to parent, if present. SSH detection uses the who am i

       -xxx -J (--usb)
              - Adds, if present, serial number for non hub devices.

              - Adds interfaces: for non hub devices.

              - Adds, if available, USB speed in Mbits/s or Gbits/s.

       -xxx -m, --memory-modules
              -  Adds memory bus width: primary bus width, and if present, total width. e.g.  bus
              width: 64 bit (total: 72 bits).  Note  that  total  /  data  widths  are  mixed  up
              sometimes  in  dmidecode output, so inxi will take the larger value as the total if
              present. If no total width data is found, then inxi will not show that item.

              - Adds device Type Detail, e.g. detail: DDR3 (Synchronous).

              - Adds, if present, memory module voltage. Only some systems will  have  this  data

              - Adds device serial number.

       -xxx -N
              - Adds, if present, serial number.

       -xxx -R
              -  md-raid:  Adds  system  mdraid  support  types (kernel support, read ahead, RAID

              - zfs-raid: Adds portion allocated (used) by RAID array/device.

              - Hardware RAID: Adds rev, ports, and (if available and/or relevant) vendor:  item,
              which shows specific vendor [product] information.

       -xxx -S
              -  Adds,  if  in  X,  or  with --display, bar/dock/panel/tray items (info). If none
              found,  shows  nothing.  Supports  desktop   items   like   gnome-panel,   lxpanel,
              xfce4-panel, lxqt-panel, tint2, cairo-dock, trayer, and many others.

              - Adds (if present), window manager (wm) version number.

              - Adds (if present), display manager (dm) version number.

       -xxx -w, -W
              -  Adds location (city state country), observation altitude (if available), weather
              observation time (if available), sunset/sunrise (if available).


       These options are triggered with --admin or -a. Admin options are advanced output options,
       and  are  more technical, and mostly of interest to system administrators or other machine

       The --admin option sets -xxx, and only has to be used once.  It will trigger the following

       -a -A  -  Adds,  if  present,  possible  alternate: kernel modules capable of driving each
              Device-x (not including the current driver:). If no non-driver modules found, shows
              nothing.  NOTE: just because it lists a module does NOT mean it is available in the
              system, it's just something the kernel knows could possibly be used instead.

       -a -C  - Adds CPU family, model-id,  and  stepping  (replaces  rev  of  -Cx).   Format  is
              hexadecimal (decimal) if greater than 9, otherwise hexadecimal.

              - Adds CPU microcode. Format is hexadecimal.

              -  Adds socket type (for motherboard CPU socket, if available). If results doubtful
              will list two socket types and note: check. Requires sudo/root and dmidecode.   The
              item  in  parentheses  may simply be a different syntax for the same socket, but in
              general, check this before trusting it.
              Sample: socket: 775 (478) note: check
              Sample: socket: AM4

              - Adds DMI CPU base and boost/turbo speeds. Requires sudo/root and  dmidecode.   In
              some  cases,  like  with  overclocking  or  'turbo'  or  'boost' modes, voltage and
              external clock speeds may be increased, or short term  limits  raised  on  max  CPU
              speeds.   These  are  often not reflected in /sys based CPU min/max: speed results,
              but often are using this source.

              CPU not overclocked, with boost, like Ryzen:
              Speed: 2861 MHz min/max: 1550/3400 MHz boost: enabled base/boost: 3400/3900

              Overclocked 2900 MHz CPU, with no boost available:
              Speed: 2900 MHz min/max: 800/2900 MHz base/boost: 3350/3000

              Overclocked 3000 MHz CPU, with boosted max speed:
              Speed: 4190 MHz min/max: 1200/3001 MHz base/boost: 3000/4000

              Note that these numbers can be confusing, but basically, the  base  number  is  the
              actual normal top speed the CPU runs at without boost mode, and the boost number is
              the max speed the CPU reports itself able to run at.  The actual max speed  may  be
              higher than either value, or lower.  The boost number appears to be hard-coded into
              the CPU DMI data, and does not seem to reflect actual max speeds that  overclocking
              or other combinations of speed boosters can enable, as you can see from the example
              where the CPU is running at a speed faster than the min/max or base/boost values.

              Note that the normal min/max: speeds do NOT show actual overclocked OR  boost/turbo
              mode  speeds,  and  appear  to  be  hard-coded values, not dynamic real values. The
              base/boost: values are sometimes real, and sometimes not.  base appears in  general
              to be real.

              -  Adds  CPU Vulnerabilities (bugs) as known by your current kernel. Lists by Type:
              ... (status|mitigation): .... for systems that support this feature  (Linux  kernel
              4.14 or newer, or patched older kernels).

       -a -d,-a -D
              - Adds logical and physical block size in bytes.

              Using smartctl (requires sudo/root privileges).

              - Adds device model family, like Caviar Black, if available.

              - Adds SATA type (eg 1.0, 2.6, 3.0) if a SATA device.

              - Adds SMART report line: status, enabled/disabled, health, powered on, cycles, and
              some error cases if out of range values. Note that for Pre-fail items, it will show
              the VALUE and THRESHOLD numbers. It will also fall back for unknown attributes that
              are or have been failing and print out the Attribute name,  value,  threshold,  and
              failing  message.  This  way  even  for unhandled Attribute names, you should get a
              solid report for full failure cases. Other cases may show if inxi believes that the
              item  may  be  approaching failure. This is a guess so make sure to check the drive
              and smartctl full output to verify before taking any further action.

              - Adds, for USB or other external drives, actual model  name/serial  if  available,
              and  different  from enclosure model/serial, and corrects block sizes if necessary.
              Adds in drive temperature for some drives as well, and other useful data.

       -a -G  Triggers a much more complete Screen/Monitor output on the  Display:  line  of  -G.
              Note that the basic feature requires xdpyinfo, and the advanced per monitor feature
              requires xrandr.

              No support currently exists for Wayland since we so far can find  no  documentation
              or  easy  methods  to  extract  this  information  from  Wayland  compositors. This
              unfortunate situation may change in the future, hopefully.  However,  most  Wayland
              systems  also  come  with xwayland, which should supply the tools necessary for the
              time being.

              Further note that all references to Displays, Screens, and Monitors  are  referring
              to  the  X  technical  terms,  not  normal consumer usage. 1 Display runs 1 or more
              Screens, and a Screen runs 1 or more Monitors.

              - Adds Display ID, for the Display running the Screen that runs the Monitors.

              - Adds total number of Screens listed for the current Display.

              - Adds default Screen ID if Screen (not monitor!) total is greater than 1.

              - Adds  Screen  line,  which  includes  the  ID  (Screen:  0)  then  s-res  (Screen
              resolution),  s-dpi,  s-size  and  s-diag.  Remember, this is an Xorg Screen, NOT a
              monitor screen, and the information listed is about the  Xorg  Screen!  It  may  at
              times  be  the  same as a single monitor system, but usually it's different in some

              - Adds Monitor ID(s). Monitors are a subset of a Screen, each of which can have one
              or  more  monitors.  Normally  a  dual  monitor setup is 2 monitors run by one Xorg
              Screen. Each monitor has the following data, if available:

              - res: resolution in pixels.  This  is  the  individual  monitor's  reported  pixel

              -  hz:  frequency  in  Herz, as reported to Xorg. Note that there have been and may
              continue to be bugs with how Xorg treats > 1 monitor frequencies.

              - dpi: dpi (dots per inch), aka, ppi (pixels per inch). This is the physical screen
              dpi, which is calculated using the screen dimensions and its resolution.

              -  size: size in mm (inches). Note that this is the real monitor size, not the Xorg
              Screen size, which can be quite different (1 Xorg Screen can for  instance  contain
              two or more monitors).

              -  diag: monitor screen diagonal in mm (inches). Note that this is the real monitor
              size, not the Xorg full Screen diagonal size, which can be quite different.

              Sample (with both xdpyinfo and xrandr data available):
              inxi -aG
              Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.6 driver: modesetting
              display ID: :0.0 screens: 1
              Screen-1: 0 s-res: 2560x1024 s-dpi: 96 s-size: 677x271mm (26.7x10.7")
              s-diag: 729mm (28.7")
              Monitor-1: DVI-I-0 res: 1280x1024 hz: 60 dpi: 96
              size: 338x270mm (13.3x10.6") diag: 433mm (17")
              Monitor-2: VGA-0 res: 1280x1024 hz: 60 dpi: 86
              size: 376x301mm (14.8x11.9") diag: 482mm (19")
              - Adds, if present, possible alternate: kernel  modules  capable  of  driving  each
              Device-x (not including the current driver:). If no non-driver modules found, shows
              nothing. NOTE: just because it lists a module does NOT mean it is available in  the
              system, it's just something the kernel knows could possibly be used instead.

       -a -I  Adds  Packages,  totals,  per  package  manager  totals, and number of lib packages
              detected per package manager. Also adds detected package managers with  0  packages
              listed. Moves to Repos if -ra.

              inxi -aI
               Init: systemd v: 245 runlevel: 5 Compilers: gcc: 9.3.0 alt: 5/6/7/8/9
               Packages: apt: 3681 lib: 2096 rpm: 0 Shell: ksh v: A_2020.0.0 default: Bash
               v: 5.0.16 running in: kate inxi: 3.1.04

       -a -j, -a -P , -a -P
              - Adds swappiness and vfs cache pressure, and a message to indicate if the value is
              the default value or not (Linux only, and only if available).  If not  the  default
              value, shows default value as well, e.g.

              For -P per swap physical partition:

              swappiness: 60 (default) cache pressure: 90 (default 100)

              For -j row 1 output:

              Kernel: swappiness: 60 (default) cache pressure: 90 (default 100)

       -a -n, -a -N, -a -i
              -  Adds,  if  present,  possible  alternate: kernel modules capable of driving each
              Device-x (not including the current driver:). If no non-driver modules found, shows
              nothing.  NOTE: just because it lists a module does NOT mean it is available in the
              system, it's just something the kernel knows could possibly be used instead.

       -a -p,-a -P
              - Adds raw partition size, including file system overhead, partition table, e.g.

              raw size: 60.00 GiB.

              - Adds percent of raw size available to size: item, e.g.

              size: 58.81 GiB (98.01%).

              Note that used: 16.44 GiB (34.3%) percent refers to the available size, not the raw

              - Adds partition filesystem block size if found (requires root and blockdev).

       -a -r  - Adds Packages. See -Ia

       -a -S  - Adds kernel boot parameters to Kernel section (if detected). Support varies by OS


       --alt 40
              Bypass Perl as a downloader option. Priority is:  Perl  (HTTP::Tiny),  Curl,  Wget,
              Fetch, (OpenBSD only) ftp.

       --alt 41
              Bypass  Curl  as  a  downloader option. Priority is: Perl (HTTP::Tiny), Curl, Wget,
              Fetch, (OpenBSD only) ftp.

       --alt 42
              Bypass Fetch as a downloader option. Priority is: Perl  (HTTP::Tiny),  Curl,  Wget,
              Fetch, (OpenBSD only) ftp.

       --alt 43
              Bypass  Wget  as  a  downloader option. Priority is: Perl (HTTP::Tiny), Curl, Wget,
              Fetch, OpenBSD only: ftp

       --alt 44
              Bypass Curl, Fetch, and Wget as  downloader  options.  This  basically  forces  the
              downloader  selection  to  use  Perl 5.x HTTP::Tiny, which is generally slower than
              Curl or Wget but it may help bypass issues with downloading.

       --dig  Temporary override of NO_DIG  configuration  item.  Only  use  to  test  w/wo  dig.
              Restores default behavior for WAN IP, which is use dig if present.

       --display [:<integer>]
              Will  try  to  get  display  data  out  of  X (does not usually work as root user).
              Default gets display info from display :0. If you use the format --display :1  then
              it would get it from display 1 instead, or any display you specify.

              Note  that  in some cases, --display will cause inxi to hang endlessly when running
              the option in console with Intel  graphics.  The  situation  regarding  other  free
              drivers such as nouveau/ATI is currently unknown. It may be that this is a bug with
              the Intel graphics driver - more information is required.

              You can test this easily by running the following command out of X/display  server:
              glxinfo -display :0

              If it hangs, --display will not work.

              Force use of dmidecode. This will override /sys data in some lines, e.g. -M or -B.

       --downloader [curl|fetch|perl|wget]
              Force inxi to use Curl, Fetch, Perl, or Wget for downloads.

       --host Turns on hostname in System line. Overrides inxi config file value (if set):

              SHOW_HOST='false' - Same as: SHOW_HOST='true'

              This  is  an  absolute  override,  the  host  will always show no matter what other
              switches you use.

              Temporary override of NO_HTML_WAN configuration item. Only use to  test  w/wo  HTML
              downloaders  for  WAN  IP.  Restores default behavior for WAN IP, which is use HTML
              downloader if present and if dig failed.

       --indent-min [integer]
              Overrides default indent minimum value. This is the value that  makes  inxi  change
              from wrapped line starters [like Info] to non wrapped. If less than 80, no wrapping
              will occur. Overrides internal default value and user configuration value:


       --limit [-1 - x]
              Raise or lower max output limit of IP addresses for -i. -1 removes limit.

       --man  Updates / installs man page with -U if pinxi or  using  -U  3  dev  branch.   (Only
              active if -U is is not disabled by maintainers).

              Overrides default use of dig to get WAN IP address. Allows use of normal downloader
              tool to get IP addresses. Only use if dig is failing, since dig is much faster  and
              more reliable in general than other methods.

              Turns  off  hostname in System line. This is default when using -z, for anonymizing
              inxi output for posting on forums or IRC. Overrides configuration value (if set):

              SHOW_HOST='true' - Same as: SHOW_HOST='false'

              This is an absolute override, the host will not show no matter what other  switches
              you use.

              Overrides use of HTML downloaders to get WAN IP address. Use either only dig, or do
              not get wan IP. Only use if dig is failing, and the HTML downloaders are taking too
              long, or are hanging or failing.  Make permanent with NO_HTML_WAN='true'

              Disables  man  page  install  with  -U  for master and active development branches.
              (Only active if -U is is not disabled by maintainers).

              Overrides user set SENSOR_FORCE configuration value. Restores default behavior.

              Skip SSL certificate checks for all downloader actions (-U, -w,  -W,  -i).  Use  if
              your  system  does  not have current SSL certificate lists, or if you have problems
              making a connection for any reason.  Works  with  Wget,  Curl,  Perl  HTTP::Tinyand

              Skips  the  use  of sudo to run certain internal features (like hddtemp, file) with
              sudo. Not related to running inxi itself with sudo or super user. Some systems will
              register  errors which will then trigger admin emails in such cases, so if you want
              to disable regular user use of sudo (which requires configuration to  setup  anyway
              for these options) just use this option, or NO_SUDO configuration item.

       --output [json|screen|xml]
              Change data output type. Requires --output-file if not screen.

       --output-file [full path to output file|print]
              The given directory path must exist. The directory path given must exist, The print
              options prints to stdout.  Required for non-screen --output formats (json|xml).

       --partition-sort [dev-base|fs|id|label|percent-used|size|uuid|used]
              Change default sort  order  of  partition  output.  Corresponds  to  PARTITION_SORT
              configuration item. These are the available sort options:

              dev-base - /dev partition identifier, like /dev/sda1.  Note that it's an alphabetic
              sort, so sda12 is before sda2.

              fs - Partition  filesystem.  Note  that  sorts  will  be  somewhat  random  if  all
              filesystems are the same.

              id - Mount point of partition (default).

              label - Label of partition. If partitions have no labels, sort will be random.

              percent-used - Percentage of partition size used.

              size - KiB size of partition.

              uuid - UUID of the partition.

              used - KiB used of partition.

       --pm-type [package manager name]
              For  distro  package  maintainers  only, and only for non apt, rpm, or pacman based
              systems.  To be used to test replacement package  lists  for  recommends  for  that
              package manager.

              Overrides configuration values SENSORS_USE or SENSORS_EXCLUDE on a one time basis.

              Similar  to  --sensors-use  except  removes  listed sensors from sensor data.  Make
              permanent with SENSORS_EXCLUDE configuration item. Note that  gpu,  network,  disk,
              and other specific device monitor chips are excluded by default.

              Example: inxi -sxx --sensors-exclude k10temp-pci-00c3

              Use  only  the   (comma separated) sensor arrays for -s output. Make permanent with
              SENSORS_USE configuration item. Sensor array ID value must be the exact value shown
              in  lm-sensors  sensors output (Linux/lm-sensors only). If you only want to exclude
              one (or more) sensors from the output, use --sensors-exlude.

              Can be useful if the default sensor data used by inxi is not from the right  sensor
              array. Note that all other sensor data will be removed, which may lead to undesired
              consequences. Please be aware that this can lead to many undesirable  side-effects,
              since  default behavior is to use all the sensors arrays and select which values to
              use from them following a set sequence of rules. So if you force one  to  be  used,
              you may lose data that was used from another one.

              Most  likely  best use is when one (or two) of the sensor arrays has all the sensor
              data you want, and you just want to make sure inxi doesn't use  data  from  another
              array that has inacurate or misleading data.

              Note  that gpu, network, disk, and other specific device monitor chips are excluded
              by default, and should not be added since they do not provide cpu,  board,  system,
              etc, sensor data.

              Example: inxi -sxx --sensors-use nct6791-isa-0290,k10temp-pci-00c3

       --sleep [0-x.x]
              Usually  in  decimals. Change CPU sleep time for -C (current:  .35).  Sleep is used
              to let the system catch up and show a more accurate CPU use. Example:

              inxi -Cxxx --sleep 0.15

              Overrides default internal value and user configuration value:


       --tty  Forces internal IRC flag to off. Used in unhandled cases where the program  running
              inxi  may  not be seen as a shell/tty, but it is not an IRC client. Put --tty first
              in option list to avoid unexpected errors. If you want a specific output width, use
              the  --width  option.  If  you  want  normal color codes in the output, use the  -c
              [color ID] flag.

              The sign you need to use this is extra numbers before the key/value  pairs  of  the
              output  of  your program. These are IRC, not TTY, color codes. Please post a github
              issue if you find you need to use --tty (including the full -Ixxx line) so  we  can
              figure out how to add your program to the list of whitelisted programs.

              You  can  see  what  inxi  believed started it in the -Ixxx line, Shell: or Client:
              item. Please let us know what that result was so we can add it to the parent  start
              program whitelist.

              Forces the USB data generator to use /sys as data source instead of lsusb.

              Forces  the  USB  data  generator to use lsusb as data source. Overrides USB_SYS in
              user configuration file(s).

       --wan-ip-url [URL]
              Force -i to use supplied URL as WAN IP source. Overrides dig or default  IP  source
              urls. URL must start with http[s] or ftp.

              The  IP  address from the URL must be the last item on the last (non-empty) line of
              the page content source code.

              Same as configuration value (example):


       --wm   Force System item wm to use wmctrl as data source, override default ps source.


       --dbg 1
              - Debug downloader failures. Turns off silent/quiet mode for curl, wget, and fetch.
              Shows  more  downloader  action  information.  Shows some more information for Perl

       --dbg [2-xx]
              - See github  inxi-perl/docs/inxi-values.txt  for  specific  specialized  debugging
              options.  These  can  vary  but  tend  to not change much, though they are added as

       --debug [1-3]
              - On screen debugger output. Output  varies  depending  on  current  needs  Usually
              nothing changes.

       --debug 10
              -       Basic       logging.       Check       $XDG_DATA_HOME/inxi/inxi.log      or
              $HOME/.local/share/inxi/inxi.log or $HOME/.inxi/inxi.log.

       --debug 11
              - Full file/system info logging.

       --debug 20
              Creates a tar.gz file of system data and collects the inxi output in a file.

              * tree traversal data file(s) read from /proc and /sys, and other system data.

              * xorg conf and log data, xrandr, xprop, xdpyinfo, glxinfo etc.

              * data from dev, disks, partitions, etc.

       --debug 21
              Automatically uploads debugger data tar.gz file to, then  removes  the
              debug data directory, but leaves the debug tar.gz file.  See --ftp for uploading to
              alternate locations.

       --debug 22
              Automatically uploads debugger data tar.gz file to, then  removes  the
              debug  data  directory  and  the tar.gz file.  See --ftp for uploading to alternate

       --ftp []
              For alternate ftp upload locations: Example:

              inxi --ftp --debug 21


       Only used the  following  in  conjunction  with  --debug  2[012],  and  only  use  if  you
       experienced a failure or hang, or were instructed to do so.

              Force  debugger  to  parse  /proc directory data when run as root. Normally this is
              disabled due to unpredictable data in /proc tree.

              Use this to locate file that /proc debugger hangs on.

              Skip exit on error when running debugger.

              Skip /proc debugging in case of a hang.

              Skip /sys debugging in case of a hang.

              Force PowerPC debugger parsing of /sys as sudo/root.

              Use this to locate file that /sys debugger hangs on.


       BitchX, Gaim/Pidgin, ircII, Irssi, Konversation, Kopete, KSirc, KVIrc, Weechat, and Xchat.
       Plus any others that are capable of displaying either built-in or external script output.


       To  trigger  inxi  output  in  your  IRC client, pick the appropriate method from the list

       Hexchat, XChat, Irssi
              (and many other IRC clients) /exec -o inxi [options] If you don't include  the  -o,
              only you will see the output on your local IRC client.

              /cmd inxi [options]

              To run inxi in Konversation as a native script if your distribution or inxi package
              hasn't already done this for you, create this symbolic link:

              KDE 4: ln -s /usr/local/bin/inxi /usr/share/kde4/apps/konversation/scripts/inxi

              KDE 5: ln -s /usr/local/bin/inxi /usr/share/konversation/scripts/inxi

              If inxi is somewhere else,  change  the  path  /usr/local/bin  to  wherever  it  is

              If  you  are using KDE/QT 5, then you may also need to add the following to get the
              Konversation /inxi command to work:

              ln -s /usr/share/konversation /usr/share/apps/

              Then you can start inxi directly, like this:

              /inxi [options]

              NEW: /exec -o inxi [options]

              OLD: /shell -o inxi [options]

              Newer (2014 and later) WeeChats work pretty much the same now as other console  IRC
              clients, with /exec -o inxi [options]. Newer WeeChats have dropped the -curses part
              of their program name, i.e.: weechat instead of weechat-curses.


       inxi will read its configuration/initialization files in the following order:

       /etc/inxi.conf contains the default  configurations.  These  can  be  overridden  by  user
       configurations  found  in  one of the following locations (inxi will store its config file
       using the following precedence: if $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not empty, it will go  there,  else
       if  $HOME/.conf/inxi.conf  exists,  it  will  go  there, and as a last default, the legacy
       location is used), i.e.:

       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/inxi.conf > $HOME/.conf/inxi.conf > $HOME/.inxi/inxi.conf


       See the documentation page for more complete information on how to set these up, and for a
       complete list of options:

       Basic Options
              Here's a brief overview of the basic options you are likely to want to use:

              COLS_MAX_CONSOLE The max display column width on terminal.

              COLS_MAX_IRC The max display column width on IRC clients.

              COLS_MAX_NO_DISPLAY The max display column width in console, out of GUI desktop.

              CPU_SLEEP  Decimal  value  0  or more. Default is usually around 0.35 seconds. Time
              that inxi will 'sleep' before getting CPU speed data, so that  it  reflects  actual
              system state.

              DOWNLOADER  Sets  default  inxi  downloader:  curl,  fetch,  ftp,  perl, wget.  See
              --recommends output for more information on downloaders and Perl downloaders.

              FILTER_STRING Default <filter>. Any string you prefer to see instead  for  filtered

              INDENT_MIN  The  point  where  the  line  starter wrapping to its own line happens.
              Overrides default. See --indent-min. If 80 or less, wrap will never happen.

              LIMIT Overrides default of 10 IP addresses per IF. This is only of interest to  sys
              admins running servers with many IP addresses.

              NO_DIG  Set  to  1  or true to disable WAN IP use of dig and force use of alternate

              NO_HTML_WAN Set to 1 or true to disable WAN IP use of HTML  Downloaders  and  force
              use  of  dig  only, or nothing if dig disabled as well. Same as --no-html-wan. Only
              use if dig is failing, and HTML downloaders are hanging.

              NO_SUDO Set to 1 or true to disable internal use of sudo.

              PARTITION_SORT Overrides default partition output sort.  See  --partition-sort  for

              PS_COUNT The default number of items showing per -t type, m or c. Default is 5.

              SENSORS_CPU_NO  In  cases  of ambiguous temp1/temp2 (inxi can't figure out which is
              the CPU), forces sensors to use  either value 1 or 2 as CPU  temperature.  See  the
              above configuration page on for full info.

              SENSORS_EXCLUDE  Exclude supplied sensor array[s] from sensor output. Override with
              --sensors-default. See --sensors-exclude.

              SENSORS_USE Use only supplied sensor array[s]. Override with --sensors-default. See

              SEP2_CONSOLE Replaces default key / value separator of ':'.

              USB_SYS Forces all USB data to use /sys instead of lsusb.

              WAN_IP_URL Forces -i to use supplied URL, and to not use dig (dig is generally much
              faster). URL must begin with http or ftp. Note that if you use this, the downloader
              set  tests  will run each time you start inxi whether a downloader feature is going
              to be used or not.

              The IP address from the URL must be the last item on the last (non-empty)  line  of
              the URL's page content source code.

              Same as --wan-ip-url [URL]

              WEATHER_SOURCE  Values:  [0-9].  Same  as  --weather-source.  Values  4-9  are  not
              currently supported, but this can change at any time.

              WEATHER_UNIT Values: [m|i|mi|im]. Same as --weather-unit.

       Color Options
              It's best to use the -c [94-99] color selector tool to  set  the  following  values
              because  it  will correctly update the configuration file and remove any invalid or
              conflicting items, but if you prefer to create your own configuration  files,  here
              are the options. All take the integer value from the options available in -c 94-99.

              NOTE:  All  default and configuration file set color values are removed when output
              is piped or redirected. You must use the explicit -c <color number> option  if  you
              want  colors  to  be  present  in  the  piped/redirected output (creating a PDF for

              CONSOLE_COLOR_SCHEME The color scheme for console output (not in X/Wayland).

              GLOBAL_COLOR_SCHEME Overrides all other color schemes.

              IRC_COLOR_SCHEME Desktop X/Wayland IRC CLI color scheme.

              IRC_CONS_COLOR_SCHEME Out of X/Wayland, IRC CLI color scheme.

              IRC_X_TERM_COLOR_SCHEME In X/Wayland IRC client terminal color scheme.

              VIRT_TERM_COLOR_SCHEME Color scheme for virtual terminal output (in X/Wayland).


       Please report bugs using the following resources.

       You may be asked to run the inxi debugger tool (see --debug 21/22), which  will  upload  a
       data  dump  of system files for use in debugging inxi. These data dumps are very important
       since they provide us with all the real system data inxi uses to parse out its report.

       Initial CPU logic, konversation version  logic,  occasional  maintenance  fixes,  and  the

       The nice people at channels #linux-smokers-club and #smxi,  who   all  really
       have  to  be  considered  to  be  co-developers  because  of their non-stop enthusiasm and
       willingness to provide real-time testing and debugging of inxi development.

       Siduction forum members, who have helped get some features working by  providing  a  large
       number  of  datasets  that  have revealed possible variations, particularly for the RAM -m

       AntiX users and admins, who have helped greatly with testing and  debugging,  particularly
       for the 3.0.0 release.

       ArcherSeven  (Max),  Brett  Bohnenkamper (aka KittyKatt), and Iotaka, who always manage to
       find the weirdest or most extreme hardware and  setups  that  help  make  inxi  much  more

       For the vastly underrated skill of output error/glitch catching, Pete Haddow. His patience
       and focus in going through inxi repeatedly to find  errors  and  inconsistencies  is  much

       All  the  inxi  package  maintainers,  distro  support  people,  forum  moderators, and in
       particular, sys admins with their particular issues, which almost always  help  make  inxi
       better, and any others who contribute ideas, suggestions, and patches.

       Without  a  wide  range  of diverse Linux kernel-based Free Desktop systems to test on, we
       could never have gotten inxi to be as reliable and solid as it's turning out to be.

       And of course, a big thanks to locsmif, who figured out a lot of the core methods,  logic,
       and tricks originally used in inxi Gawk/Bash.
