Re: [opensuse-factory] Really too much to ask for a working Software Management system ??

Since the update of Factory to GCC 4.7, the YaST software management system
has not been working anymore. I have seen numerous bug reports on this, but it
seems as if the YaST maintainers are pointing to the Zypp Team.

So instead of working together and providing a solution for this, we as users
are still stuck with a non working Software Management system. Despite that we
have already reached the 12.2 Beta 1 milestone.

Are we really expecting from our users that they will fall-back to a command
line tool with reduced functionality ?? I think this is the biggest Show-
Stopper that openSUSE 12.2 has at the moment and I really hope that the YaST
and Zypper teams getting their acts together and providing a working solution
before 12.2 is released. It would be really strange to see a release without
the possibility to update the system properly.

I apologize for the tone of the message, but I am really getting pissed off
with the current situation around YaST and if this is not resolved soon, then
my system for one will never see the official release of 12.2.

What bug reports have you filed? Did you supply proper debugging information?

For me, both YaST and zypper mostly work, thus it is important that tose people with problems file good reports.
