    Cool Renaming The Menu Titles

    Hi friends..,i hv just installed Open suse 11.1 in my computer.It is fantastic.And i hope that i will get answers for my questions here.
    I just wanted to know weather its possible to rename the Menu bars and Tabs in Suse windows..let me give a example..
    In Yast,there is a tab Called Virtualization..is it possible to rename it as AS Xen...And also is it possible to rename other things such as:

    Create Virtual Machine-->Create DOM U
    Install Hypervisor--->Install Xen
    Virtual machine Manager--->Management..

    no, i'm not a programmer so i couldn't teach you how to do it...but, i
    know anyone can download the YaST source and change those titles at
    will, and then compile and use..

    for me, i just find it easier to use what is there..

    i mean (for example) today you want to change "Virtualization" to "AS
    Xen", but i ask if you decide to use the virturalization software
    named VMbox will you then want to change "AS Xen" to "VMbox", and then
    someday (maybe) change "VMbox" to "VMWare"..

    to me, it would be easier to leave it as the more generic and be done
    with it...but, if you think it is worth the trouble and effort to
    change the source you are FREE to do so...that is one of the wonderful
    things about open source, the FREEdom it allows all..

    but, be advised you will most likely have to go through the entire
    process again when/if you update to v 11.2, .3 etc etc etc..

    As said: it can all be done In the end all source code is available, so....

    But why? Recently I saw a KDE menu, where the user had changed almost everything in the menu to the Windows equivalent. So XMMS was renamed to WinAmp, Writer to Word, even k3B was renamed to Nero. These days he's posting about 'linux not using proper names for programs', in windows fora.
    Accept that you've got another OS. I Bet you're not looking for IE on a macbook either.
    The structure and naming in Yast are the result of years of development, with lots of help from the community. Leave it as it is, it's your tool to maintain your system, and it's ready for almost anything you'll need in the future.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    WAIT! you expect US to teach you HOW to do a task REQUIRED for you to
    complete your last year of college??

    gimme a break man! THE reason they gave you that project was to FORCE
    you to LEARN something...if we TELL how to do it, you will not LEARN a
    thing..

    dig in the books and stop CHEATING via the internet..

    gimme the name of your college and instructor!!

    and, THEN download the source code and FIGURE IT OUT!!!

    "Multiple Personality" told you already, easy as one, two. three:

    1. download the source for YaST
    2. change it (that is, change 'Virtualization' to 'AS Xen', etc)
    3. compile it
