I just rerun sgfxi -fB here again for a starter now and it worked.
Looks like the patched version already did the trick

Thanks and regards !!

if you can do the tests anyway with 331 current stable and even 304.121 that would be helpful so I know.

I will try that and report asap.
But I think the 304 driver will/might not work with my GF 8600 card.

Didn't got it done yesterday, sorry.

331.49 didn't compile at all via sgfxi, even the -f parameter didn't help

304.121 compiled like a charme, even my GF 8600 series card works with it, despite what the infos on the driver said.

with a 8/9000 series card, I believe 304 will work in most cases.

Remember that 304 was not so long ago, and it was the current stable, so whatever cards were supported when it became legacy 6/7xxx driver would still be supported.

So 331.49 needs a patch, ok.

added same patch for 331.49, it applies, but I have no idea if it works in terms of the driver building and working.

try it and see.

Just tested again with 331.49.
Compiles and works now like a charme too.

Just to let you know that using sgfxi -f on latest antiX 3.14 kernel works just fine with 331.49 in 32 and 64 bit.

:: Code ::
 inxi -b

Just as further information, installing the patch reported some offset, but it built ok. If you want me to send you any debug for this, just let me know.

I'm using the same patch for 334 and 331, so there's a a small offset because the lines of code are a bit different.

If I was super picky I'd make a 331.49 patch and fix the offset, but I'm lazy and it works, the offset just means the line number was off by that number but it found it.

thanks for confirming the patches work, wish it was always this easy.

I notice you are using an antique inxi, I guess there's no accounting for taste, heh.

The inxi update is now largely done by the way, dynamic wrapping on all features and lines, down to 80 columns with some overflow on some lines if certain data types are very long, but that's too much to deal with so I'm calling it done.

You can test the resize with the new -y option, inxi -Fxx -y 85
will emulate an 85 column width in irc/terminal, though of course it's not exactly the same since if lines go over and your terminal is wider, it won't actually wrap like it would in a 85 column wide terminal, so to speak. 2.1.18 has all the goodies, the first complete one released for line wrap. 2.1.17 introduced -y.

For support purposes, it's useful, you can tell someone:

inxi -Fxxxpluod -y 125 -c 0 > inxi.txt
and it will output text file lines of 125 columsn no matter what the terminal was sized to.
