$ inxi -help
inxi supports the following options. You can combine them, or list them
one by one: Examples: inxi -v4 -c6 OR inxi -dDc 6

If you start inxi with no arguments, it will show the short form.
The following options if used without -d or -v will show just that complete line:
A,C,D,G,I,N,P,S - you can use these together to show just the lines you want to see.
If you use them with a -v level (or -d), it will show the full output for that line
along with the output for the chosen verbosity level.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Output Control Options:
-A Show audio/sound card information.
-c Available color schemes. Scheme number is required.
Supported schemes: 0-15 Example: inxi -c 11
-C Show full CPU output, including per CPU clockspeed.
-d Default output verbosity level, same as: inxi -v 1
-D Show full hard disk info, not only model, ie: /dev/sda ST380817AS 80.0GB.
-f Show all cpu flags used, not just the short list. Not shown with -F to avoid spamming.
-F Show Full, all possible, output for inxi.
-G Show graphic card information (+ glx driver and version for non free video drivers).
-i Show Wan IP address, and shows local interfaces (requires ifconfig network tool).
Not shown with -F for user security reasons, you shouldn't paste your local/wan IP.
-I Show information: processes, uptime, memory, irc client, inxi version.
-l Show partition labels. Default: short partition -P. For full -p output, use: -pl (or -plu).
-N Show network card information.
-p Show full partition information (-P plus all other detected partitions).
If any of your partitions have spaces in their names, they will not show with -p
-P Show partition information (shows what -v4 would show, but without extra data).
Shows, if detected: / /boot /home /tmp /usr /var. Use -p for All partitions.
-S Show system information: host name, kernel, distro
-u Show partition UUIDs. Default: short partition -P. For full -p output, use: -pu (or -plu).
-v Script verbosity levels. Verbosity level number is required.
Supported levels: 0-5 Example: inxi -v 4
0 - short output, same as: inxi
1 - basic verbose, same as: inxi -d
2 - Also show networking card data
3 - Also show hard disk names as detected.
4 - Also show partition size/filled data for (if present):/, /home, /var/, /boot
5 - For multicore systems, also show per core clock speeds; shows audio card.
-x Show extra data: bogomips on cpu; driver version (if available) for network/audio.
Only works with verbose or line output.

Additional Options:
-h - this help menu.
-U Auto-update script. Note: if you installed as root, you
must be root to update, otherwise user is fine.
-V inxi version information. Prints information then exits.
-% Overrides defective or corrupted data.
-@ Triggers debugger output. Requires debugging level 1-10.
