[New: openFATE 326741] zypper: use dialog to display license
Feature added by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)

Feature #326741, revision 1
Title: zypper: use dialog to display license

Requested by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Partner organization:

From user feedback I got at Akademy. By default zypper displays licenses to
confirm in "less". That requires pressing 'q' to exit the pager. That is not
intuitive for not so Linux experienced users. So to make this more user
friendly, zypper could use "dialog" instead of less if available. An example
call could be for example:

# dialog --textbox /etc/YaST2/licenses/base/license.txt $((LINES-5)) 85
--and-widget --yesno $"Do you agree with the terms of the license?" 0 0
