Support a verbose logging mode in yast

Feature state

Rejected Information


Create a verbose logging mode in yast, where any action yast performs is logged. Any file yast touches should be logged (to /var/log/YaST2/y2log AND clean up the structure of that log file, to make it easier to read and interpret) and all changes on the systems configuration. The goal is to make it really transparent what yast does.

Documentation impact

Admin guide needs to contain information about the new log file.

Please add it to the Log file section in the troubleshooting chapter

Can't be done for 10.2. Back to TPMs.

Sorry, couldn't be done for 10.3. We need a concept for this. Even within the team different developers have different needs. Improving the logging to give all developers the best possible debugging information will be difficult, but it's definitely something we should attempt in the near future.

Can we get some traction here finally?

Reopening, the YaST transparency is often cited as a problem for users.

I think this has enough user benefit and is trivial enough, we should just get it done.

I've added y2useritem and y2usernote builtins into yast2-core. This might be helpful for this feature.

I have added the two functions to yast2-perl-bindings-2.18.0 (for oS 11.2).
