Someone comes into #Fedora and asks how to get their wireless card working and don’t know their chipset. You need to see the output of lspci. Someone else comes into Fedora and can’t find out why their second hard drive isn’t showing up. You need to see the output of dmesg. The problem is, pasting these things into a high-volume IRC channel is not ideal.
Fedora Unity hosts FPaste, which is an easy to use pastebin.
The user must find a way to copy the output from the console to this website and paste the URL back into the channel. But for many users this is not ideal – especially for those running without X.
What we need is a simple utility than could do something like:
lspci | fpaste
Where the output could get piped into a script to submit to fpaste.org and output the URL back to console. This would save a lot of time and hassle for end-users in #fedora.
Possible solution in Comments. Patch-work done by daMaestro. Big thanks!
