Subject description: System information utility
 

Purpose and Base Features
PupSysInfo is a graphical interface with quick access to more than fifty utilities that provide information about the underlying system interface and functions of Puppy Linux.

From the File menu you can generate summary and complete reports of hardware and system activity (with privacy option), and optionally export the current report to the default text editor. Setting the editor to a fixed-width/monospace font will preserve the intrinsic text format of each report. The View menu provides a convenient way to change the size of text in the information window.

The Mainboard menu provides individual reports for the system BIOS and CPU, and additional reports for DMA (direct memory access), DMI (desktop management interface), Input/Output resources, and interrupt requests.

The Devices menu will generate standard hardware reports for the following devices: Drive Storage, PCI, USB, Audio, Notebook Battery, Display, Input, Memory, Network, Printers and Sensors. The Drive Storage, PCI, USB and Display options have submenus which provide many additional hardware reports.

In addition to summary and complete kernel module reports, the Drivers menu of PupSysInfo provides convenient access to the companion PupKview kernel module viewer.

The Logs menu includes the following reports: bootinit.log, bootsysinit.log, Kernel Log, Login Report, System Log, xerrs.log, and Xorg.0.log.

Reports for the network and firewall are available in the Network menu, and scrollable versions of the ipinfo utility are also supported in this menu.

The Sys-Apps, Sys-Files and Sys-Specs menus provide easy access to multiple system applications, files and specifications.

System Requirements
Availability of a standard monospace font for the display of system information.

Code for detecting the current window manager is missing from the initial release today. The corrected version of PupSysInfo-1.4 is now available. If you have the initial release, please download again.

Thanks

Testing 2.0... I get this message.. Not sure if it matters..

Code:
# Pup-SysInfo
lspci: invalid option -- 'k'
l# lspci --version
lspci version 2.1.11


I get no PCI devices listed, while HardInfo lists quite a few, including my FX5200 GPU...

I think that Pup-SysInfo calls pupscan. Pupscan tests if pci.ids is found. If it is found, it calls lspci instead of scanpci (older way, not realible anymore). You need to update your lscpi.
Code:
# lspci --version
lspci version 3.1.7

Code:
# lspci --help
lspci: invalid option -- '-'
Usage: lspci [<switches>]

Basic display modes:
-mm      Produce machine-readable output (single -m for an obsolete format)
-t      Show bus tree

Display options:
-v      Be verbose (-vv for very verbose)
-k      Show kernel drivers handling each device

Hi sc0ttman,

(thank you pemasu for the prior post)

Currently, PupSysInfo has four separate scenarios for the evaluation of PCI devices.

1 - If Barry's PupScan is available, PupSysInfo will use the PCI information generated by Pupscan (available in /tmp/chipnummod.txt). This will be the case in most recent Puppy derivatives.

2 - If PupScan is not available, PupSysInfo will check if the current version of lspci supports the -k switch. If so, PupSysInfo will use PCI information from lspci -knn. The -k switch, if supported, shows kernel drivers handling each device. If the -k switch is not supported, lspci may generate the following message: invalid option -- 'k'.

3 - If the -k switch of lspci is not supported, PupSysInfo will check if the deprecated scanpci utility is available. If so, the scanpci information will be used for the PupSysInfo PCI report.

4 - If scanpci is not available, PupSysInfo defaults to lspci -nn.

4 - If scanpci is not available, PupSysInfo defaults to lspci -nn (no -k switch), which provides very little useful information.

Hmm, something is wrong then, my lspci (which I will update) does not support the -k option, but Pup-sysInfo tries to use it.. Pupscan also relies on the -k option, in my install.. I do have scanpci installed, and its working fine.. I will investigate later..

EDIT: I did see workarounds, but they did not work for me,
so have compiled and updated to 3.1.7, that fixed it..

I had to move the lspci binary from /usr/sbin to /sbin for it to work..
The rest of the package was not moved..

Hi sc0ttman,

Thanks for confirming the successful upgrade of the lspci utility in your Akita puppy derivative.
