SuSE experiences (negative)

SLES didn’t quite finish setting itself up. To get the YaST updates system to work, you apparently need to run another setup process, meaning you need to insert CD#1-the-first yet again. Since the server’s a couple of miles away at the moment…

Here is the point in my SuSE Linux experience where I started to swear a lot:

# man yast
No manual entry for yast
# yast --help
Usage: /sbin/yast [OPTIONS] [MODULE] [module specific parameters]


-l,--list      list all available modules
-g,--geometry  default window size (qt only)
-s,--style     widget style (qt only)
-h,--help      this screen

exceptional case for installing packages:

/sbin/yast OPTION


-i,--install   install rpm package

can be a single short package name (e.g. gvim)
which will be installed with dependency checking, or the full
path to an rpm package (e.g /tmp/gvim.rpm) which will be
installed without dependency checking

I can tell that this distribution and I will not be friends.
