I've been doing this 10.1 test work just like a real user: In other words I never
read any release notes or documentation :-).
Meanwhile, there is all this highly confusing yast/rug/zypp/zen stuff going on
changing everything about online updates out from under me. In the 10.0
incarnation I submitted bug 141063 which was closed saying all would be
automatic in 10.1.
Now with RC2, I finally see some automatic things happening. Configuring the
online update does seem to find a mirror for me, but at this point I get really
The little updater icon turned orange with an !, so I figure that means there
are updates. If I click on the icon, it does say there are updates, but if I
goto yast's online update it says there aren't any.
Also if I goto software management to install some things from online factory
that aren't on the CDs, the things I'm looking for don't show up until I once
again manually configure a factory installation source.
So things look really confusing and inconsistent from out here in typical
user land :-).
P.S. I don't know where the zypp name came from, but you do realize
it is setup to have people call it "zyppy the pinhead" don't you? :-).
The zen updater showed available updates this morning (a whole slew of
them, including libzypp and friends; I have factory and factory-extra
subscribed), but the screen's been sitting at "Resolving dependencies"
for almost an hour. I have to cancel on the laptop to go to work
(maybe it will survive a lid close), but I will leave it running on the
test machine at home just out of curiosity...
Generally speaking, the new updater seems appallingly slow. Comments?

This is a new one. I swear I've done this before with no problems
since installing RC2, but now when I boot into RC2 and run normally
for a while, then restart the system and boot into Fedora Core 5
instead, the FC5 initial fsck always reports a corrupted superblock
on a big partition I have on my 2nd disk drive (always the same
If I shutdown all the way (power off), and restart from power up
booting to FC5 I don't get any corrupt superblock messages (all
partitions on this system are ext3). So it isn't really corrupt,
it just looks that way when I soft restart. Don't know if the sata
drivers on suse are leaving the disk in funny state or what.
In RC2 I see the main yast screen now has an item labeled "Setup
Online Update" and another labeled "Configure Online Update".
Might I suggest changing the name of the appropriate one
to "Setup Automatic Updates" or something like that?
As it is, I can't tell why they would do different things from the
