Sys-info 0.6

Tazoc is the creator of a Puppy derivative named Lighthouse Puppy. Read more here:
http://www.lhpup.org/

Tazoc has also created a PET named 'sys-info', that reports on all of the hardware in a computer. This is very handy when someone reports a bug, and instead of the developer having to ask one question after another about what hardware the person is running Puppy on, sys-info provides it all in one hit. See Forum thread:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=60462

I have uploaded the PET to the Puppy 'common' repo, for all Woof-built puppies to use. Note, I had to modify the 'pinstall.sh' script slightly, to suit installation of the PET in the Woof build environment (that is, not in a running Puppy) (44KB):

This will be in the next Wary and Racy.

Sys-Info
Thanks Barry.

This should allow everyone to produce common information back to distro developers and supporters.

I agree that there's a need for a common report tool like this in all PUPs for behavioral reporting.

And there other useful uses of a tool like this as well.
