YAST1 should work quite well. After I wrote you, I created yet another user
account just to make sure that the advice I gave was, indeed, correct.
Basically There is a lot of change going on in the Linux distros. New kernel;
new desktops (GNOME and KDE); and new XFree86. So there is bound to be some
difficulties. This is the price of progress.
From my experience, I do not see any major bug in SuSE 7.1. The
overwhelming majority of my desktop apps work and I have no instabilities.
Did you get all the relevant updates from the SuSE site? I have installed
Scilab, RealPlayer, Chemtool, Qcad and the latest edition of KDE. I have also
compiled in Octave. All these are working quite well. If you are still
having problems creating user accounts, please post to the list. I am most
interested as to why YAST1 should not work.
However it cannot hurt to try the latest release if you are experiencing
exceptional problems with SuSE. Mandrake is a good distro; they employ one of
the top KDE developers, David Faure.
