From my new openSUSE 12.3 Tumbleweed install it seems something has changed.

Recommended X application: glxinfo (info: -G glx info)...................... Missing
The solution for Redhat/Fedora/Suse: glx-utils

glx-utils is no longer in the repos. It seems in order to get glxinfo I had to install Mesa-demo-x. You might want to change the directions to:

Application: glxinfo
To add to your system, install the proper distribution package for your system:
Debian/Ubuntu: mesa-utils :: Arch Linux: mesa-demos :: Redhat/Fedora: glx-utils :: openSUSE: Mesa-demo-x

Thanks, inxi is still the first thing I add to a new install.

ah, the classic: change package name / api/ path/ for no particularly good reason issue, heh.

Always tricky to handle cleanly because the old names are still in use on all older systems.

I'll squeeze in the new name but there wont' be a new version release numerically, you can update inxi -U and check it again and it may or should show the right thing in the package name, though of course it has to still also show the old name for all redhat and older suse systems. Sigh.

am I reading that right that they use an uppercase in the actual package name? Mesa-demo-x ? weird.

Also note that this appears to be an opensuse 12.3 only package name, not redhat, so I had to modify the recommends output to not that as well.

These types of pointless changes I view as one of the issues that makes any long term adoption of a linux desktop increasingly improbable, since these types of pointless changes are the norm from my experience.

update: there was a bug in my first fix that would make the --recommends output wrong if glxinfo is missing.

Only for opensuse users however, but if anyone else happened to update inxi in the last hour or so, update it again and it will be right, I think.

inxi does not show package names for redhat/fedora and opensuse/suse differently because it's too much of a pain to track that and I get almost no feedback from either opensuse or redhat/fedora users so I don't want to be stuck tracking the package names over time, but I will update it if someone lets me know as you did.

Wow, inxi is up past 1.9 ... a milestone. Anyway ...

Yes, the name of the application is "Mesa-demo-x". I can't believe someone actually came up with that name.

I'll have to try removing it to see what the notification looks like, but, right now, everything looks good. It even found a missing hddtemp on one of the installs.

I'm just getting used to running openSUSE Tumbleweed. It's got a nice look, and, an up to date KDE.

And inxi -F fills in all the slots.
