Running inxi -Faz fails to access and run the command. Not sure what changed here. Is the same on a fresh install.
Can you show the command and the possible output?
It did this on a current install and i reinstalled it with the latest ISO and is the same so something changed with updates maybe?
Is logging in not working as well as inxi?
No i was already logged in and this box comes back up instead when i run the command from the terminal.
Edit: It’s strange because inxi works. It seems to happen with the small a is added added?
Edit2: I can run
I can run inxi -F but as soon as i add an a that’s what comes up?
Inxi was upgraded 2 days ago.
What happens if you downgrade inxi?
This is fresh install so i I have to find the inxi version and downgrade it another way.
Edit: How do i find the older version if it’s not a package cache?
It gives you a list of older versions to choose. They are archived to the internet.
But it is a fresh install and only shows current version?
[ricklinux@rick-ms7c37 ~]$ sudo downgrade inxi [sudo] password for ricklinux: loading packages... warning: inxi-220.127.116.11-1 is up to date -- reinstalling resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages...

It should show many old versions even if you have never installed them.
Well it isn’t showing any other than installed?
Does EnOS keep an archive of older packages?
inxi is not in Arch repos (and consequently not in ALA) so that is probably why downgrade comes up empty handed.
I noticed that too.
So won’t that explain why downgrade is not showing older versions?
That was the point I tried to make
Sorry Rick, I totally forgot inxi is from our repo. We don’t have archives.
No problem. I had reinstalled Sway trying to figure out if it was a problem that happened from the new ISO but obviously it isn’t. I had the same issue on the current install and and when i installed the new ISO.
Edit: It only seems to do this when using inxi -Faz
Edit2: If i drop the small a it doesn’t do it. Yet i can use the small a in other commands.
BTW, we do have some older packages archived, but it is not under real maintenance.
For example, an older inxi is here:
Okay i downgraded it and it still does the same thing.

Very strange? I used inxi -Fa this time
I remember the eos-log-tool had some problems with inxi earlier, and I haven’t tested that lately.
Inxi did something strange with terminal I/O at the time, but later they fixed it. Maybe it is not working well now?
I don’t know but I can use the small a in the command except after an F?
