Feature changed by: Christ Schlacta (aarcane) Feature #310701, revision 6 Title: package byobu in an opensuse repository
openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed Priority Requester: Important
Requested by: Divan Santana (divansantana7) Partner organization: openSUSE.org
Description: Would be great if anyone using opensuse could zypper in byobu . Unfortunately it's not in any opensuse repo despite it being a great tool for administrating linux servers. I'm quite surprised this isn't already available for opensuse. Would be a nice addition for 11.4
Discussion: #1: Andreas Jaeger (a_jaeger) (2010-11-09 12:00:09) Please provide an URL and tell us what exactly would be the benefits of it.
#2: Divan Santana (divansantana7) (2010-11-10 21:03:37) (reply to #1) https://launchpad.net/byobu I'm sure some searching on the net will say more regarding the benefits but basically it's great as a default screen profile esp for servers. As a screen profile by default, it says what the server OS is exactly, how many security/non-security updates are available, what the current load is, mem, disk, etc. So immediately when you are working on a server(not just on login) you can view all this information. It's very handy. It's although basically screen made easier for newbies, kinda like nano vs vim.
#3: Christ Schlacta (aarcane) (2013-07-25 21:59:12) I'm trying to migrate from ubuntu, and the lack of a packaged byobu may be a deal breaker. It's a super useful screen and tmux enhancement and I'm VERY fond of it, nearly dependent. I'd definitely like to +1 this feature request.
