Neofetch


I think it's preferable to run neofetch in a xterm window because in a bash terminal, some unwanted logs are added at the end of the fetch..

What do you mean? I don't see any difference across terminal emulators (konsole/xterm/VT) or shells (zsh/bash).

Did you mean to write in a "...X-based terminal window because in a console..."?

Either way I just tested this. On my laptop the output looked the same in a X-based terminal window and X-less console.

I have a question. What is the value of newly added neofetch?

Each user is going to have a different idea on the value of it. Pat felt it was common enough in the Linux world to include it. It requires little knowledge to package and maintain it and is unlikely to have any security issues that they need to keep up with (unlike something like postgresql).

This is Pat's distro and we are along for the ride. We can make suggestions along the way, but it's ultimately Pat's choice.

[removed]? Seriously, you do that all the time.

I asked the question about this software to hear real answer.

But you seem to reply to all my posts with the idea how Pat is great and mighty etc. [removed]

I know that I have no control over what Pat does with Slackware. I have been happy with his decisions so far, so I continue to use Slackware. I'm not sure how that is "kissing his ass". It's stating the truth, that we are just along for the ride... but you're able to get off at any time.

The software provides output for the system in an easy to view text format. It's popular online. That is the value it provides. I think lshw would make a great addition to Slackware as it is very powerful and you can parse its output. If Pat decides to add it to Slackware, awesome, if not, I'll continue to install it from SBo.

I said nothing of the sort. I just stated that this is his distro. He is the only one who has control over the direction it heads. He does take input from his dev team and from users, but it's ultimately his decision on what happens.

You should know that this type of statement/question is against the forum rules and could lead to issues with the mods.

However, would it matter if I was? My sexual orientation has no bearing on being able to have respect for people I've never met (or that I have met). I've never met Pat in person, although, I certainly wouldn't mind doing it and buying him a drink or something. I do have a great deal of respect for the man as he has been able to continually pump out a distro over the years while sticking to the ideals and principles that have made Slackware what it is. I have a great deal of respect for other members in this forum and would be happy to buy them drinks as well. For some of those members, I have no idea what gender they are and that does not affect my level of respect for them.

Contrary to some people's desires on this forum, if you want to continue trolling this forum, I have no problem continually replying to you with facts and logic. Maybe you'll eventually decide to leave us in peace or maybe you'll cross enough lines that will lead the moderators to temporarily or permanently ban you. In the meantime (and long after you stop trolling us), I'll continue to provide help to those who need help with Slackware.

@IGOR Ultra lame dude Re neofetch, looks like a bit of fun to me (the inxi script probably has more utility, but whatever). Regarding your pattern of posting more generally, Slackware is highly resistant to structural change. If you want a distribution that "evolves" and changes faster, I think you're on about the worst Linux distribution possible. Clearly for others, that aspect is very appealing. But that's a good thing, Linux users have lots of options. Take it easy champignon

Neofetch appears to behave the same for me between xterm, yakuake or xfce4-terminal.

It's a neat little program, even if just for show.

bassmadrigal,

I think you're wasting your time with this one.

I think we're going to need to actually see this.

Pictures?

I know it's a waste of my time, but I still feel drawn to comment. It's definitely one of my flaws and ultimately why I stopped going on my personal Facebook... I just couldn't keep quiet on posts that I knew would lead to more issues (I once had a friend unfriend me and cut off contact since he couldn't believe that he was wrong, even when shown proof that his conclusions were false). With the prevalence of false information on social media these days, I'd be typing all day to correct inaccurate statements put out by friends, which can lead to hard feelings if they can't have a civil discussion online.

But on this forum, those corrections seem to be relatively small in the overall course of the posts on the forum. I am not worried about offending someone that I know in my personal life by my actions on the forum. I like this forum to be a good representation of Slackware.

I love having discussions, but I hate bashing sessions.

No, you didn't want to hear a real answer. You wanted to start an argument.

This is one of the most pathetic and juvenile responses I've read on LQ, which I've reported.

It's a Slackware thing, you wouldn't understand.

It's cool. I likes it.
