Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Text about Fedora

Expected results:

No details of version.

Additional info:

Either include the Fedora version in the release notes or change the GNOME menu
item to About->Fedora 9.


1. Mail list discussion:

2. system-summary package does give a GUI route to this information but isn't
installed by default.

Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2008-02-29 15:20:46 UTC
Reassigning to system-summary.  Please add it as a default to the appropriate
comps group.

Comment 2 James Bowes 2008-03-19 19:44:06 UTC
gnome-system-monitor now shows all this goodness (in rawhide), plus its under
the system menu so its very obvious. I'd say its best to rely on that instead,
and get rid of system-summary.

Comment 3 James Bowes 2008-03-19 20:06:09 UTC
Moving to gnome-system-monitor (where it can really just be closed).

Comment 4 Will Woods 2008-04-01 19:35:40 UTC
Yup, this is now shown by the "About this Computer" item in your system menu.
