Note: novfs is now part of our kernel tree:
pm -qlp kernel-default-18.104.22.168-1.1.i586.rpm |grep novfs
So, no need anymore for the kmp.
It IS part of the kernel, but (at least on my system... I did not update
yet to the 22.214.171.124 kernel) the version is older than what is shipped in
the 2.0 beta client (2.0.0-440 vs 2.0.0-504 from the client)
Ouch, so now it means that there is no way to upgrade the KMP as it
will conflict with the kernel package :(
ko modules from KMPs go to a different location
(/lib/modules/$kernel/updates) so they don't conflict.
IMHO it would be better to have it as a KMP that is
against the latest kernel in oss-updates, especially if the release

Why not just have them in a repository of their own ? It would be
non-oss, with EULA/disclaimer/copyright/whatever, but in its own
non-oss repos on build.opensuse.org
is an interesting idea.
You could alternatively ask for a build.novell.com
software, to have a clear and obvious separation of the two.
It does sound quite hopeless, tried in the past
already. Seems that
the Novell Client for Linux is developed by the part of Novell that
doesn't care at all about openSUSE.
'not at all' is too strong -- it's about priorities and about risk:
openSUSE has no support or QOS commitments whatsoever, and no API
commitments, nothing. It's a world in its own and there is a lot of
goodwill but nobody would buy a great car if you *maybe* get it fixed,
which is if someone happens to be interested in fixing it.
So if Novell officially commits to support a product on top of
openSUSE, and some bug that shows in the product actually needs a fix
in the base OS, then the users are bad off.
That's why. It's actually a "we do care": we care about the
I agree, though, a 'beta' release with goodwill commitments could be a
