While we strive to produce a problem free product, there are sometimes issues which are not easily resolved or for which special consideration is required. This chapter discribes known issues and workarounds for this release of the software.
Certain graphics drivers on Linux will momentarily
when SysInfo and other similiar programs such as
ddcprobe are run.
The blink occurs when the monitor is probed via the DDC protocol.
The blinking is a bug in the graphics drivers themselves rather than a bug
in the SysInfo.
If you wish to avoid blinking monitors, specify the
--avoidblink command line option.
When specified, DDC probing will not be performed when graphics cards
known to have this problem are installed.
The list of known graphics cards known to have this problem is as follows:
You may receive an "Out of Memory!" error on HP-UX when
generating HTML output, especially if using
in conjunction with
This error is due to the default maximum data memory allowed by the kernel
being set too low.
To avoid this error,
you can adjust the
maxdsize kernel parameter from
it's typical default of 500MB to 1000MB or more.
Alternatively you can first create a SysInfo report of the data you want, transfer the report data to a system with lots of memory, and then create the report. Here's the basic procedure:
On the HP-UX system with the error run:
mcsysinfo --nw --class software --msglevel all --format report > sw.rpt
sw.rpt file to
a host with enough memory and then run:
mcsysinfo --nw --class software --msglevel all --encode html --infile sw.rpt > sw.html
