Description Chandrasekar Kannan 2006-08-24 21:44:55 EDT
migrated from http://raidzilla.sfbay.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=57443

Currently there's no version number for ESC that the end user can see. 

We need one of these two solutions:

(1) make an about box for ESC where it prints out the ESC version number , with
nice redhat Logos. 

(2) or do it from command line, esc -V , will print out the version number. 

Also, we need to talk to Sean Cotter to find out what version number to put
for ESC.

move to 7.2, if you get to it, re-target it

> We need one of these two solutions:

My request is to have both UI and command line output.  
Comment 2 Jack Magne 2006-08-25 12:11:31 EDT
That can be done, I will figure it out.
Comment 3 Bob Lord 2006-09-08 18:09:35 EDT
Examples from other XUL apps on Linux:

$ /local/firefox/firefox --version
Mozilla Firefox 2.0b2, Copyright (c) 1998 - 2006 mozilla.org

$ /local/thunderbird/thunderbird --version
 Thunderbird 2.0a1, Copyright (c) 2005-2006 mozilla.org

Comment 4 Chandrasekar Kannan 2006-09-27 01:31:51 EDT
per bug council on 09/26, out of 72
Comment 5 Chandrasekar Kannan 2006-11-21 00:54:56 EST
per bug council on 11/17, these bugs are not targeted for RHEL 5.0 Smart card
login work. These bugs will now be targeted for RHEL 5.1. 

Comment 6 Chandrasekar Kannan 2007-03-20 07:12:25 EDT
per the last bug meeting, we decided this would be targeted in the rhel 5.1
Comment 7 Bob Lord 2007-03-28 13:26:28 EDT
This bug was proposed for RHEL 5, but wasn't resolved in time.
    devel_ack+ for RHEL 5.1.
Comment 8 Jack Magne 2007-04-13 14:30:03 EDT
Locally have it working to where the user can say while in:


./esc -version

It will print out the version on the command line.
Comment 9 Jack Magne 2007-04-18 20:53:20 EDT
Now the feature works by simply typing:

esc -version

At the terminal in any directory.

Fixed in esc-1.0.0-21.el5 .
Comment 12 Chandrasekar Kannan 2007-08-23 14:24:45 EDT
Verified on x86_64. I see an additional (null) printed out. Filing a separate
bug to get that removed/replaced.
