I have uploaded the following to These are
specifically for "SuSE 8.1" as I have discovered the configuration has
changed for susehelp. Strange though no body has complained or filed a
bug. Looks like nobody is using this package maybe I should abondon the
project :-(

Anyway for those using it


my keys are available at

Once you install the rpm

1) edit /sbin/conf.d/SuSEconfig.susehelp around line 40 changing
indexsusehelp to susehelpindex

# /usr/sbin/indexsusehelp -> /usr/bin/susehelpindex
if [ "$DOC_AUTOINDEX" = yes ] ; then
/sbin/checkproc -p /var/lock/susehelpindex /usr/bin/susehelpindex >&
/dev/null || \
echo " Creating susehelp index."; \
/bin/bash -c "/usr/bin/susehelpindex >& $MYLOG & /sbin/pidofproc \
/usr/bin/susehelpindex >/var/lock/susehelpindex" &

2) Then run /sbin/SuSEconfig --module susehelp

3) Now Unofficial SuSEFAQ should be again in the SuSEhelpcenter with
Search enabled.

4) If there are bugs please submit them at
