Re: [yast-devel] Services UI, a different approach


On Mar 5 16:22 Ancor Gonzalez Sosa wrote (excerpt):

If the user want to enable and start a service he needs
to do both things explicitly (and the other way around).

Is this user interface meant for experienced users
or also for unexperienced users?

What I am thinking about is:
When an unexperienced user reads in whatever documentation
that he must for example "start apache", then YaST should
provide a user interface, where even an unexperienced user
can find something that matches his intent to "start apache"
where YaST does everything so that the "apache" thingy works.
Perhaps such a functionality belongs to a YaST module
to set up a web server and not to the YaST module to
configure individual services?
In this case the YaST module to configure individual services
is not meant to be used by unexperienced users.
