Lightbulb noobinfo: Script that helps novice users to share info, searching for issue solutions


Hi,
inspired from many topics like:
"My wifi dongle isn't recognized"
"My linux doesn't play sounds"
and so on, followed by answers begging for more info and so on I've written a "quite stupid" but maybe useful script to generate in a single interactive move a report of many ls* and other informations.
The script generates a collections of outputs in a tar.gz format or a single big txt report to paste in a pastebin resource.
With these information many gurus may help novices a little more.

The script is here: https://github.com/LCyberspazio/noobinfo

The report contains
uname
lscpu
lsmod
lsusb
lspci
lsscsi
dmesg

I was going to add also a "ps aux" output that may be useful for some problems with processes running but I think so much information about the system are already revealed from the side of security threat.

If you consider this script as not so stupid or... tadaaaa!!! USEFUL please let me know about other reports to add.

Just want to notify that, according to some suggestions gave me in other forums, I've uploaded a modified version of the script.
Updates include mktemp generated temporary directory, verbose ls* command output and automatic upload of the report on the paste bin arin.ga

Check it out

Have a nice day!
