For a while, I was looking for something to put on the right of the
treemenu when there is no dialog displayed (GUI mode). I finally
came with an idea. The status module is presenting one screen
(one page of the notebook) immediately at startup.
The screen shows different information:
- The name of the machine (useful when you run several
Linuxconf and do remote administration.
- An icon or picture representing the machine or its function.
- And various status information such as the uptime, load average,
memory and swap usage.
The list will probably grow and the more graphics will be introduced.
The screen is updated every 3 seconds.
You can change the icon and you can disable this completely if you
do not like it, from the feature dialog.
You need linuxconf-gui though. This won't work with gnome-linuxconf
