That is correct. Those updates did fix the YAST problems and after performing the updates, YAST works as it should.

Cheers,

Yup, YaST works.. , haven't yet tried the Zen Installer, but I will when I need something to install. I am excited, now I am just configuring my updater, and taking out all the crap services (why they all got entered from "Installation Sources" I have no idea (old bug I guess that got fixed).

Here's to the OpenSuSE team.. Good Job

Setup a 64bit Update source, and it'll tell you if they are there, but I am assuming that there is.

Here is a repository local to me:

http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/suse/suse/x86_64/update/10.1/

That is a 64-bit update site..

You can try to find one nearer to you here:

http://www.novell.com/products/susel...t_mirrors.html

The "Argentina" Mirror only updates 1386, so find the nearest country too you, and use that repository for your "updates".

Have fun.

It doesn't matter what repository you use, the xml repodata and parser(YAST or Zen) will take care of the rest. Package manager will offer you 64bit rpms if you are using a 64 system and the repo has 64bit packages available.

For example :

ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/update/10.1/rpm
has a directory listing :
Directory: i586
Directory: noarch
Directory: ppc
Directory: ppc64
Directory: src
Directory: x86_64

and the xml-files in ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/update/10.1/repodata
will tell the updater what to get

I asked because this patch http://www.novell.com/linux/download.../101_i386.html as it says ends in i386. I thought It only worked on x86, and not on x86_64.
thanks averyone

YaST crashes? Have you installed the YaST / Zen / Rug etc updates?

SL 10.1 was and still is quite buggy so hopefully the next release is in better shape.

Here is the roadmap for SL 10.2:

Jun 16, 2006 - SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 1 release.
Jul 13, 2006 - SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 2 release.
Aug 10, 2006 - SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 3 release.
Sep 7, 2006 - SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 4 release.
Oct 5, 2006 - SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 5 release.
+ betas + rcs --> so the final one maybe in late October or November or after KDE4 is done

IMO 10.1 > 10.0, just people got stuck and kept pointing out "YaST!" issues... But cmon, there is SMART, there is command line, and a bunch of others.. But now my solid concensus is:

Patched 10.1 > 10.0 and if people think otherwise, then try going back to 10.0
