It's OK. It was a fight but I have managed to fix it. Thanks again.

Oh! By the way. That #! SMXI tutorial is out of date. The sequence of instructions and some of the instructions have changed. I don't think a less experience user would be able to follow it. I just barely did myself, even though I have been 8 years on Linux and also using it prior to this.

smxi without a tutorial offers "some" in script running help

as I know you know, saying it aloud for anyone lurking.

feel free to join that cb forum and offer updated advice, I am sure they will appreciate your time.

feel free to join the smxi forum and offer feedback ditto

there is also online help here

--- believe it or not, you are the best person to offer such advice as
a) you can tell there are deviations and
b) developers find it hard to test from a newbie point of view

----I am not suggesting you are a newbie but you are newish to running smxi.

good luck in the future

PS that developer has dedicated script for nvidia and AMD cards and also
inxi which is also in the debian repo
