Anyone know the status of the Novell IPrint Client and Netware Clients
for openSUSE? The IPrint client does seem to work ok. But it is never
included with openSUSE. The Netware client is more of a mystery.
http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tip/19968.html implies that with
fiddling it can work with 10.2, 10.3 and 11.0. But why not a proper
package for the releases of openSUSE?
I understand that Novell would like to sell things. I work at a place
with a Netware site license - we have already bought everything. It is
everywhere. Except on any openSUSE clients. Is the idea that folk who
want to work in a strictly MS environment are fine with openSUSE (Novell
+MS deal helps ensure that), but folk who want to work in a Netware
environment are not in as good a position to be integrated with Netware?
Something seems odd about that. I can only interpret the continued lack
of real releases of these clients for the releases of openSUSE to mean
that Novell are not as interested in Netware integration of openSUSE as
they are of MS integration. I can join a Windows active domain via
Yast. I can do nothing to integrate with Netware.

"On two occasions I have been asked (by members of Parliament!),
'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures,
will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend
the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.

It is like talking about large city with all constructions finished.
Not impossible, but very unlikely.
