@JoeAtari: lspci (and other "MinT executables") are intended to run in a UNIX-like
environment, which is not part part of FreeMinT snapshot. E.g. lspci should be started
from a shell (sh or bash) and exepts the executable "gzip" in path /bin/ or /usr/bin/ for
extracting the database file "pci_ids.gz". Without this file (or if "gzip" is not found),
lspci only shows numerical values instead of the names and parameters found in database.
I don't know your current MinT installation, so perhaps i explained things you already know...
I have the full mint install with the UNIX-like environment (I think). I just don't know what I am doing
Here is what I tried:
Code: Select all
root@easymint:/home>exec /home/lspci -vv -i /home/pci.gz
bash: /home/lspci: Permission denied
bash: exec: /home/lspci: cannot execute: Success
