I've modified the menu entry for smart --gui to run 'ldconfig &&
SuSEconfig' when I quit smart. I too am waiting for a definitive answer on
this. At one time i heard that the SUSE developers are working to eliminate
the need to run SuSEconfig and/or that smart may gain the same capability
as
apt/synaptic.

Yeah, I have no idea what those things do,

ldconfig makes available new shared library versions, with new version numbers, that are not in /lib or in /usr/lib.

SuSEconfig makes available changes in /etc/sysconfig/ in those cases where the programs don't read these configuration files themselves, but where these values are incorporated into other configuration, data files, or symbolic links.

Sadly, this observation is not sufficient. ldconfig and SuSEconfig are needed by very few packages, mostly basic libraries and some server software. Nevertheless, it *IS* needed in those cases, and therefore I asked for it.
