YaST2 screen title needs a machine-name in it

Feature state

Rejected Information


The nomenclature, "[YaST control panel] @ [machine name]' is very useful for figuring out which window belongs to which server. Especially if the managing workstation is also openSUSE.

Formerly Bug #385625


When managing openSUSE servers over X-forwarding via SSH, it is possible to have multiple YaST screens up at the same time, each belonging to a different remote server. Having a way to differentiate between YaST instances in the title-bar will reduce confusion, and help avoid config mistakes.

The ncurses interface already has this. (The qt one does not?)

yast2-qt shows the hostname in the title bar for remote connection only. I think it doesn't make sense to show @localhost.

@<hostname> is shown, if it is a remote connection. I mark this feature as done.
