Hi all,

I'd like to announce the Yast DBus service which is now available in SVN Trunk
and in
FACTORY. You just need to install yast2-core-2.18.7 package [*].

The new service can export every Yast name space, even non YCP modules like
(Perl) or Pkg:: (C++).

This service should be used as the base component for our new Yast Web

For more information look at

I'm looking forward to your feed back.

Ladislav, can you show us a more concrete example?

For example, I want to enable the firewall, and open port 8080, using dbus.

1) what would be the policykit policies for this
2) what would I need to call via dbus?

One nice example is here:
