With one exception: the online update module has a bug in it, and it eats,
no, wolves memory. I have on that 32Mb machine about 2 GIGA bits of swap
only for that purpose.

Just have a look at the binary's name: "/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2bignfat", ie,
"yast2 big and fat.", I suppose. Yes, it does have yast2.

I have it online for the purpose of working as modem-router for 9.1:
modem pppd is broken in 9.1, as reported time ago.
