That's not what I'm asking for. The installer should show the current installed version, and offer the possibility to select the most recent available, as the qt version does. This adds just two columns to the view, not elements to the list.
Hm? But it does! Select a package and you can select any version from the dropdown-menu. And yes, I have used the QT-Installer during my KDE-time but perhaps I don't remember / didn't use all its features.
You don't absolutely get the point. When you write documentation for SUSE you've to manage two different installer interfaces, which is, to be honest, wrong in principle.
Well, by that logic it is also wrong in principle to feature TWO desktop environments (or even more, as SUSE does)...
Moreove you need to know two interfaces when you offer support. The result is that everyone is suggesting to disable Yast-gtk and use Yast-qt. Plain simple, and with a lot of good reasons.
I don't agree in the slightest. Have you even TRIED the new GTK-package-selector yet, before making so much noise?
