Description Mike MacCana 2002-08-15 05:15:07 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020724

Description of problem:
The logviewer uses descriptive names for all the other logs apart from dmesg -
Security Log, Mail Log, Boot Log, Update Agent Log. These names work well for
users without existing Unix knowledge and accurately describes the logs
contents. Dmesg should have a descriptive name like the other log files -
`kernel log' or `kernel and and drivers' for example.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the System Logs program
2.Look at the names of each look
3.Notice dmesg lacks the simple, descriptive  name of other logs

Actual Results:  `dmesg log' doesn't have a usable, descriptive name

Expected Results:  Dmesg should have a usable, descriptive name.

True. At the time, I couldn't think of a user-friendly name for dmesg.
I've changed it to Kernel Startup Log. Thanks.
