Hardware and Systeminformation from Commandline Part2 inxi

inxi shows system hardware, CPU, drivers, Xorg, Desktop, Kernel, GCC version(s), Processes, RAM usage, and a wide variety of other useful information.

inxi output varies between CLI and IRC, with some default filters and color options applied to IRC use.
Script colors can be turned off if desired with -c 0, or changed using the -c color options listed in the OPTIONS section below.

inxi is already installed in Pisi Linux
and is a very great Commandline-Information Tool.

In order to maintain basic privacy and security, inxi filters out automatically on IRC things like your network card mac address, WAN and LAN IP, your /home username directory in partitions, and a few other things. 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 to debug network connection issues online in a private chat, for example.


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 below:

 Xchat, irssi (and many other IRC clients) /exec -o inxi [options]

 If you leave off the -o, only you will see the output on your local IRC client.

 Konversation /cmd inxi [options] To run inxi in konversation as a native script if your distribution or inxi package did not do this for you, create this symbolic link: ln -s /usr/local/bin/inxi /usr/share/kde4/apps/konversation/scripts/inxi If inxi is somewhere else, change the path /usr/local/bin to wherever it is located. Then you can start inxi directly, like this: /inxi [options]

 WeeChat /shell -o inxi [options]

 Before WeeChat can run external scripts like inxi, you need to install the weechat-plugins package. This is automatically installed for Debian users. Next, if you don’t already have it, you need to install shell.py, which is a python script. In a web browser,

Click on the download button at:http://www.weechat.org/scripts/source/stable/shell.py.html/ Make the script executable by chmod +x shell.py Move it to your home folder: /.weechat/python/autoload/ then logout, and start WeeChat with weechat-curses Top of screen should say what pythons scripts have loaded, and should include shell. Then to run inxi, you would enter a command like this: /shell -o inxi -bx If you leave off the -o, only you will see the output on your local weechat. WeeChat users may also like to check out the weeget.py
