Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 507807
S-c-tools cleanup: Configuration - Settings
Last modified: 2014-01-12 19:09:16 EST
Description of problem:
In tab Configuration is label Settings and button Edit. Maybe it would be good to move child dialog (with tabs Kernel, Audit Daemon, etc) into main application, so there will be main application with many tabs.
Or there could be button with label Settings (not label settings and next to it button Edit).
I'm not sure which one will look better
This bug report is part of "System Configuration Tools Cleanup Project". Don't
hesitate to ask project maintainers for any kind of help.

Appearance of the utility with all tabs in main window
I tried to design proposed layout with all tabs in main window but it looks too
crowded. Can somebody please check this layout and tell me his opinion before I
will try to create fully operational patch? Thanks
That only shows tabs for editing rules.
How does the user view current auditing status, and daemon settings (the above-mentioned Settings - Edit)?

First two buttons on toolbar are for enabling and disabling audit service. 5th button is configuration - same as Settings - Edit. There is also state informations in the status bar.
Usually, the main application are contains information more important, or more frequently used, than an application-wide settings dialog, and I'm quite convinced this is the case here. On the other hand I don't have any data to suggest it isn't the case, either.
The GUI does look much better. Feel free to go head with the patch :)

Proposed patch that relayouts the window
This patch contains a big bunch of changes to achieve suggested layout. I tried to preserve current functionality but it needs to be properly tested. It also makes OK buttons sensitive to changes but it won't a problem to make them non-sensitive (it depends on final decision in bug #507806).
Final decision in bug #507806 was done.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Thanks for your report. I'm afraid further development of s-c-audit was stopped and no significant changes are currently planned; I briefly looked at the patch at the time it was posted, but I was not able to find the time required to properly integrate it.
