Ha but that isn't the problem. The problem is yast1 is closed source and
suse forces you to move on. Maybe I don't want to give up yast1 and maybe I
would like to see the source and keep it functional with future suse
releases if suse doesn't want to spend the time and money on keeping yast1
functional....

So look at it? What's stopping you? It's in zq1 along with every other piece
of source on the CD/DVD.


Where is the open sourced yast1 so suse cannot enprison us to use yast2?

On the CD/DVD

The problem is yast1 is closed source and the corporate hand forces you to
go with what suse the company decides! SuSE says yast2 is the right way and
leaves you no other choice.

The golden rule. I've broken it many, many times, so trust me: it's better to
follow it:
