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):
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.
Fixed on 0.8.2-1
Fix confirmed with redhat-logviewer-0.8.2-1.
