Have you emailed feedback@xxxxxxx or the maintainer of YaST? That should get
more response than the list. And if you do figure it out, could you post it to
the list or to me personally, since I used to have this problem, and I fear I
may have this problem again in the near future...
Just a note to everyone - if you spot bugs in the dist. then when you email the
list about them, also CC: the message to feedback@xxxxxxxxxx SuSE can't do
anything if they don't know about the bugs ;-)
Apologies to everyone who has been waiting for replies off me over the past few
weeks - I've been away from my computer. I'll try to catch up with my email
the coming days, but don't be surprised if you get a reply in a month's time...
