Wiki - Xorg and graphics sections

Suggestion : Provide these commands in every graphics related sections, primarily intel, nvidia and amd

 lspci -v | grep -A 10 -E "(VGA|3D)" 

( given in NVIDIA and Xorg   )

 glxinfo | grep "OpenGL renderer" 
 xrandr --listproviders 

( given in Prime page   )

Providing them in AMD_PRO , AMD and Intel will be helpful.

Also, mention Intel graphics installation note near xf86-video-intel in both PRIME and driver installation section in Xorg

Why grep out 10 lines? The maximum needed would be four (I think). And IIRC some cards are declared as "Display" so perhaps include that as well.

Anyway it's probably best to discuss your proposed changes on the relevant Discussion pages in the ArchWiki itself. Perhaps provide a link here, I always enjoy a good argument and I have some popcorn ready big_smile

Re: Wiki - Xorg and graphics sections

Are you referring to 'lshw -c display' .

Yes that's useful as well.

And regarding the discussion, should I mention this in discussion for one page or all? Because I'm proposing changes for intel graphics page (links in first post) , amd graphics.

Edit : I meant lspci -v instead of lspci -k. My bad.
For lspci -k what you said is correct.

Good grief no, I can't stand that command.

I meant

lspci -knn | grep -iA3 'vga\|3d\|display'

^ That version also includes the [Vendor ID:Product ID], which can be useful when trying to positively identify the card(s).

All of them, I think.

But perhaps wait a bit and see if the relevant authorities want to comment here.

glxinfo -B is a lot more useful imo .


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

(A works at time B)  && (time C > time B ) ≠  (A works at time C)
