caprea, thanks. inxi is now live at 2.9.01, about to go to 2.9.02 to fix some small issues. pinxi is remaining active as the development branch of inxi.

i_ri thanks a lot, I appreciate that. Yes, you can update to inxi now.

Note also that I am keeping pinxi alive as development inxi, so you can always update that one too to see if anything is happening there.

Will be: pinxi -> inxi -> commit.

I fixed a few subtle issues in 2.9.02, the biggest one that anyone would notice is using the technically precise but somewhat arcane and litte used MiB/GiB/TiB to indicate 1024 vs 1000 units, GB technically I realized means 1000 units, not 1024, so the results for disks would have been slighly inaccurate. Note that harddisk vendors are to blame, they started using the 1000 based sizes because it made their disks sound bigger, but since we all store data in 1024 blocks, and our systems report in those sizes by default usually, it makes sense to actually show the correct units there, but to be clear about it.

I'll see if this change confuses people.

hello h2-1
accuracy is less confounding.
Indeed the -U is up. yesterday -V 2.3.56 ; Today is -V 2.9.02-00 _ _ Now.
Thank You for all the work.

much appreciate, again. Also thanks for the vote re accuracy vs habit. I was basically convinced by the debates I found online too, particularly after I realized the reason I was confused is that GB has been used to refer to 1000 and 1024 bytes. At that point, I realized, even if its' slightly unusual looking, if inxi tells users that their disks are 78.3 GiB instead of the expected 80 GB, it's easy to explain, and to point to references.

But I also want to see how people feel about it or react to it. My suspicion is that as soon as it's explained, they will prefer it too.

There was a glitch with the downloader, the man file didn't update, if you run inxi -U and then inxi -U again the man file should download. I had to change some stuff on the repos today that broke some things, and there were some bugs in the man downloader logic as well, those are corrected, and the man downloads should now work for inxi. Note, only inxi master branch, that's the main -U no arguments, will install the man page.

'No apt repos found' bugs me a little since it is not technically correct.
Perhaps the message should read 'No active apt repos found'

anticapitalista, thanks, makes sense. Next release will have it, but I literally just did one now. I'm letting the new stuff build on pinxi, so that's now up on pinxi, will see how many changes collect tomorrow before next inxi release. Also removed the word 'found' because that starts to push the 80 column min width a bit with more words there. All of them are now roughly consistent, for stuff that gets repos from commands, it says non found, for file based ones, it says: No active apt repos in

For the very arcane, I've also added in support for the very hard to parse DEB822 apt .sources file format. Pain, it was.

Thanks, learned something new today. Reading the manpage, it looks like we'll need to get familiar with DEB822 format in the next couple years.
