YaST2 GTK project

Filed under: GNOME, Software — rakeshvk @ 2:32 pm

YaST2-GTK is an effort to develop a GTK+ interface module for Suse’s setup tool YaST that started from Michael Meeks base code and was a Google’s Summer of Code project assigned to Ricardo Cruz.

Currently everything works, including the package selector, who still lacks some features. Expect some quirks, though they should be few and minor (I am excluding the package selector here… ;-)). We will be working to get it shinning for the next Suse version.

Fun facts: Yast-GTK code has nearly half of the lines of Yast-Qt who in turn has nearly half of Yast-ncurses’s lines.
