Description Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2013-03-31 04:48:06 UTC
On terminals with large resolutions (say, 200 characters wide) it becomes very hard to visually parse the output of openrc. E.g. rc-status: if there is one failed service it's almost impossible to see which one it is at first glance.

I suggest an output change similar to the way debian does it: put the [ OK ] / [FAIL] output to the left of the rest so that there is less distance between the status indicator and the service.

* Blah starting up < -- 150 characters distance -- > [ OK ]

[ OK ] * Blah starting up

This sounds like a dupe, but if you disagree feel free to re-open.
