    Default Show YaST2 Command As Aix Smitty In Suse

    I am resurrecting this archived thread: Show Command As Aix Smitty In Suse

    Still looking for a way to see what the actual command(s) YaST2 (GUI or CLI) is running before and/or after execution.

    Thanks!

    The easiest way would be to view the source, since it's dependent on the
    module - and often it's going to be things like modifying things in /etc/
    sysconfig and then/or applying those changes to the config files for a
    specific setup (which wouldn't be "a command" but "code that runs in
    YaST".)

    Ah, the wonderful smit! "Let's simplify things and use small scripts
    instead of big programs". They just forgot that there would be thousands
    of small scripts, changing the problem from understanding how one
    program worked into how to find the one file in a twisty maze of files.

    There's also /var/log/YaST2/ and especially y2log and y2changes.

    Wow. I new /var/log/Yast2 was there, but actually never took a good look at it. This is great.
