Re: [opensuse-factory] YaST Software Management exits after package installation

openSUSE: 13.1 RC1 with one 'zypper dup' today

I had a problem with YaST Software Management that was closing after
package(s) installation. This is really not handy. It is the same as
restarting text editor after each paragraph.

With YaST Software Management we edit system, changing what it can
do by adding, or removing, applications, and we have reasonable
expectation that we should decide when to stop.


There is entry in /etc/sysconfig/yast2
PKGMGR_ACTION_AT_EXIT=""
that can be set to:
close
restart
summary
If it is empty, as above, it will default to close.

As I can see at:
http://www.muktware.com/2013/03/10-things-to-do-after-installing-opensuse-12-3/4157
it seems that "close" is still default, after years of requests to
make that "summary".

There was also a bug report, that I can't find, but so far I recall,
it was closed with conclusion that "summary" should be default.


Background:

Feature:
Make Yast2 stay open after installing packages
https://features.opensuse.org/312750

YAST "install software package" module exits immediately after
installing one module:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=661229

https://features.opensuse.org/307942
change YaST PKGMGR_ACTION_AT_EXIT behavior from EXIT to RESTART

Yeah, well, don't worry abou it too much and don't lose sleep over it.


Some anal-retentive, or -retentives, decided that "close" it should be and s/he/it will not move from this idiotic position.

You want something intelligent then do the editing yourself and change the setting to, "summary" because the anal-retentive(s) will not.
