parse-metadata occassionaly leads to a slow down, but only a minute

It blocks my three 10.1 systems always at bootup and never for less than
20 minutes. These are all installations from scratch.
To me it
smells like the end of SUSE on desktops, really. As I am using
and testing other linux distros as well I know that the only difference
is Zen. My wild guess: Zen architecture prevents it from performing
well. Because if it would be the implementation of Zen making its
performance so ridiculous, we would find some messages concering fixes
and dramatic improvements and timetables.
You are overblowing the issue.
I really wish you were right.

You can also do:
rpm -e zmd rug zen-updater
Ofcourse, that's what I am doing. But I could also build linux from
scratch then. The moment, Novell decides to drop "zmd rug zen-updater"
from the default installation I can recommend this distro again. Why?

Linux and get a well performing desktop system. Which is not the case
with the current 10.1.
