Pls, add package "acpica" in dependencies to dump and decode acpi using "hw-probe -all -upload -dump-acpi -decode-acpi"

@louson: if auracle fails to find edid-decode-git which provides=(edid-decode), that's a bug you should report to auracle ;)
(Fwiw yay works correctly, if you can't get auracle fixed you can always use yay :)

I'm not sure what you mean about dmidecode though?

@TheGoliath: I don't intend on packaging the beta, I'm waiting for 1.6 final :)

Can not satisfy dependency edid-decode-git when installing this package.

Just install edid-decode-git first.

There seems to be a communication problem between hw-probe and inxi. When doing hw-probe I get a file ../LATEST/ with only size is 66 Byte and the content is:

root@monastir logs]# cat inxi Error 22: Unsupported option: -! Check -h for correct parameters.

Please add edid-decode-git to dependencies.

$ sudo hw-probe -all
