Feature changed by: Christopher Yeleighton (yecril71pl)
Feature #310609, revision 3
Title: Yast2 log search

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Christopher Yeleighton (yecril71pl)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
The system log viewer in Yast2 should allow searching and filtering the
log.
+ Also, please add /var/log/zypp/history (file:///var/log/zypp/history)
+ to the log menu.  This file is crucial.

Use Case:
My Connexant HSF (http://www.conexant.com/) modem driver is down since
the latest kernel update
(http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-security-announce/2010-09/msg00003.html)
and I was asked by Linuxant (http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf)
support to identify the previous kernel.  So I opened
/var/log/YaST2/y2log (file:///var/log/YaST2/y2log) in Yast2 System Log
window and I tried to look for kernel , but there is too much to read
there and no search or filter function.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: We want this because the system logs are long and it is
tedious and time-consuming to review them in whole when you are looking
for something specific.

Discussion:

The log is actually so long that it exceeds the capacity of the X11
clipboard, and copying it has no effect.
