inxi -F, helping others help you.
« on: March 26, 2014, 05:14:44 am »
I've noticed that a lot of people are submitting questions without providing any or, skimpy system info. We are all guilty of this at one time or another.  Kendall has provided a really nice tutorial on how to use, "inxi -F"  to generate this valuable information.  How to post to this board. Please read.  It must be stressed that NOBODY can help you if you don't at least provide this info.  Here is an idea to make life much easier for everyone: 
If you are running multiple machines you can include these also in you signature,  Just refer your questions to the relevant machine.   :)

Now you don't have to worry about forgetting to include your system info when you post a question  :)!!

That's a good idea .. cheers.

I must add though that if at any time you ask for help from/for a different system .. be sure to mention that ;)
