Would be great if anyone using opensuse could zypper in byobu .
Unfortunately it's not in any opensuse repo despite it being a great
tool for administrating linux servers. I'm quite surprised this isn't
already available for opensuse. Would be a nice addition for 11.4

Please provide an URL and tell us what exactly would be the benefits of

I'm sure some searching on the net will say more regarding the benefits
but basically it's great as a default screen profile esp for servers.
As a screen profile by default, it says what the server OS is exactly,
how many security/non-security updates are available, what the current
load is, mem, disk, etc.
So immediately when you are working on a server(not just on login) you
can view all this information. It's very handy. It's although basically
screen made easier for newbies, kinda like nano vs vim.

I'm trying to migrate from ubuntu, and the lack of a packaged byobu may
be a deal breaker. It's a super useful screen and tmux enhancement and
I'm VERY fond of it, nearly dependent. I'd definitely like to +1 this

Wanting to give opensuse a genuine test and not having time to wait for
somebody else, I have created a build for this, located here:
I'd far prefer if some more experienced maintainer take up the chore,
as I'm not even sure I'll stick with opensuse at this point, but
there's the initial groundwork at least.
