Overview

Class which collects all installation/update information in order to write it into the /var/log/YaST2/installation_info directory when the process has been finished correctly or the process has crashed.

The implementation uses a callback mechanism to allow easily extending the logged data, it avoids circular dependencies between packages and easily handles optional YaST modules (e.g. the registration module is not present in the openSUSE Leap installer).

The callbacks also ensure that we really log the current values at the time of writing the dump file.

::Installation::InstallationInfo.instance.add_callback(“my_module”) do { “foo” => foo.value, “bar” => bar.value } end

if failed ::Installation::InstallationInfo.instance.write( “Setting foo option failed”, additional_info: “File foo does not exist” ) end

Examples:

Registering a custom callback

Dumping the data when an error occurs

Instance Method Details

#add_callback(name, &block) ⇒ Object

Register a block which will be called while generating the data file.

Parameters:

  • name (String)

    id of the function call, using the same id will overwrite the previous setting, use the module/package name to avoid conflicts

def add_callback(name, &block)
  return unless block_given?

  log.info("Adding callback #{name.inspect}")
  callbacks[name] = block
end

#callback?(name) ⇒ Boolean

is the callback already registered?

Parameters:

  • name (String)

    name of the callback

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

#write(description, additional_info: nil, path: nil) ⇒ String

Collects the data and writes the dump into an YAML file.

Parameters:

  • description (String)

    description of data, e.g. what happened

  • additional_info (Object) (defaults to: nil)

    optional additional information

  • path (String, nil) (defaults to: nil)
