Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2010-05-26 21:06:32 UTC

plymouth log viewer - boot messages

It doesn't seem to be fixed. It looks like there are some extra result fields which don't have any corresponding message.

Comment 9 Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-07-23 14:51:44 UTC

This bug got changed into "plymouth log viewer should be in a monospace font"

Jon McCann filed 3 separate bugs for the other output issues (against their relevant components).

I've updated the bug summary now to make that clearer.
