As an aside, due to how the kernel guys have designed /sys, I was actually able to follow block devices back through their paths in /sys to arrive at the right hwmon directory for that device, which is how inxi now defaults to getting nvme and drive temps. Not all hdd have this data available, for those you still have to use hddtemp, but those are also being mapped more and more internally to the hwmon directories I believe, which is why inxi can now increasingly show drive/nvme temps without root or hddtemp.

inxi was not however able to reverse that detection and start with sensors output and arrive at the right drive, I could find no way to match that data to a specific drive/block device.

I may in the future try creating a /sys direct based sensors output option, I half started that, but stopped because honestly, the sensors guys have already done it for me, so there is little to be gained by having inxi recreate the data that is already in sensors output going straight to /sys for it.

@stan sorry, yes, debuggers are good, for this in particular because the new debugger gives me pairs of sys/cpuinfo files I can insert to emulate the literal user cpu almost completely. For here, just: pinxi -MCa are enough.

I am also generally curious to see various systems times:

time inxi -Cay
time pinxi -Ca

to see which ones like the way pinxi works internally and which aren't as efficient. ARM SoC without L1/L2 cache from what I can see are going to be slower for pinxi simply because they can't cache the instructions and data, but it seems like many others lean towards pinxi, but sometimes inxi is faster.

Okay, here's one... HP desktop. I needed to change -Cay to -Cay80. Also sent a debugger.

not bad. If I have the inclination/energy, I'm going to take a look to see if there is anywhere I can drop execution time a bit in pinxi, otherwise there's now just one issue outstanding, but that's a complicated one unfortunately.

Oddly, it's about a Phenom 840, which has no L3 cache, showing phantom L3 cache anyway, for reasons still not clear.

Here's the new desktop. Did not need -Cay80, but I got an "Error 80" from the debugger, "Perl module is not installed" and it wouldn't complete.

I sent the --debug 22 reports from the Fedora computers by booting on a MX-21 live USB and using the latest pinxi (patch 31) from there.

Will send more off and on through the day today.

Is that fedora? re the missing module one? it's bad about removing required core modules, actually redhat is who is bad about it, fedora just follows redhat's lead. inxi in general does not use anything for standard operations that is not in perl core modules.

Yes, it was Fedora 35 on a couple of different computers.

Checking with 'pinxi --recommends' showed this to be the missing item: /etc/lsb-release

Here is the full output:
Code:
[[email protected] ~]$ pinxi --recommends
pinxi will now begin checking for the programs it needs to operate.

Check pinxi --help or the man page (man pinxi) to see what options are
available.

Perl HTTP::Tiny is the default downloader tool if IO::Socket::SSL is present.
See --help --alt 40-44 options for how to override default downloader(s) in
case of issues.
 
If dig is installed, it is the default for WAN IP data. Strongly recommended.
Dig is fast and accurate.
 
curl: -i (if no dig); -w,-W; -U.................................. Present
dig: -i wlan IP.................................................. Present
wget: -i (if no dig); -w,-W; -U.................................. Present
 
All recommended downloader programs are present
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Test: recommended kernel modules:
 
GPU modules are only needed if applicable. NVMe drives do not need drivetemp
but other types do.
 
To load a module: modprobe <module-name> - To permanently load add to
/etc/modules or /etc/modules-load.d/modules.conf (check your system paths for
exact file/directory names).
 
amdgpu: -s AMD GPU sensor data (newer AMD GPUs).................. Present
drivetemp: -Dx drive temperature (kernel >= 5.6)................. Missing
nouveau: -s Nvidia GPU sensor data (if using free driver)........ Missing
 
The following recommended kernel modules are missing:
Kernel Module: drivetemp
Kernel Module: nouveau
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Test: recommended Perl modules (Optional):
 
None of these are strictly required, but if you have them all, you can
eliminate some recommended non Perl programs from the install.
 
HTTP::Tiny and IO::Socket::SSL must both be present to use as a downloader
option. For json export Cpanel::JSON::XS is preferred over JSON::XS. To run
--debug 20-22 File::Copy, File::Find, and File::Spec::Functions must be
present (most distros have these in Core Modules).
 
File::Copy: --debug 20-22 - required to run debugger............. Missing

IO::Socket::SSL: -U; -w,-W; -i (if dig not installed)............ Present
Time::HiRes: -C cpu sleep (not required); --debug timers......... Missing
Cpanel::JSON::XS: --output json - required for export............ Present
JSON::XS: --output json - required for export (legacy)........... Present

The following recommended Perl modules are missing:
Perl Module: File::Copy ~ Install package: perl-File-Copy
Perl Module: Time::HiRes ~ Install package: perl-Time-HiRes
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Test: recommended directories:
 
/dev: -l,-u,-o,-p,-P,-D disk partition data...................... Present

/sys/class/dmi/id: -M system, motherboard, bios.................. Present
 
The following recommended directories are missing:
Directory: /dev/disk/by-path
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Test: recommended files:
 
Note that not all of these are used by every system, so if one is missing
it's usually not a big deal.
 
/etc/lsb-release: -S distro version data (older version)......... Missing
/etc/os-release: -S distro version data (newer version).......... Present
/proc/asound/cards: -A sound card data........................... Present

Brand-spanking new install of Fedora 35 still gives Error 80 on the debugger (with latest pinxi patch 32).

I thought I may have deleted the Perl modules when uninstalling other Fedora apps, but it seems that I didn't. :)

No, lsb stuff is just alternate, that's irrelevant.

I'm familiar with this annoying issue, redhat/fedora made the decision to remove several core modules from perl core modules. Note that the entire idea of 'core modules' in perl is specifically to always have them there and available, yet redhat decided to remove them anyway, and make them separately installed. This is why module tests for those core modules had to be added when the debugger starts, since those core modules are only used in the debugger, so no need to load them normally. The Perl guys will correctly say to file a bug report against the distro, but of course, the distro being the redhat corporation, that's not going to help.

While obviously I, and the Perl guys, wish distros would not do stuff like this, redhat doesn't care, and did, and that's the end of that story. However, pinxi on failure told you the module that failed to load, and that's installable using the fedora package manager.

Not a fan of breaking stuff like this by redhat/fedora, and whoever owns redhat now, is it IBM? I forget. Anyway, their owners don't care, so that's how it goes. Note that I said redhat made this decision, not fedora, that's because it's absurd to pretend that fedora has any autonomy at all.

So pinxi added error handlers to make sure the modules that should have always been there on all perl installs were actually there. Had to do that for another core module too, which I have zero idea of why redhat moved, since it's kind of critical for debugging, but again, who knows what they are thinking and why they do what they do, I certainly don't.

Yes, IBM owns Red Hat.

I've turned to Fedora for now on my new Dell and also on these cheap Lenovo laptops I bought last year. Whether it is the NVMe and eMMC storage drives, or something else... I don't know. But I've had a devil of a time making anything Debian/Ubuntu derived to run reliably (or at all).

Still other toys to play with though! ;)

thanks for the help.

Thank you! We use inxi here a great deal. If I had to guess, I'd say it's applicable information in at least half of our support threads.
