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.
Yes, I'm sure KMPs can still be used.. but they don't exist ;)
non-oss repos on build.opensuse.org

I was actually referring to the already existing non-oss repository of
the openSUSE distribution, but a (maybe exceptional permission) to host
NCL on OBS would be fantastic!
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:
Sounds maybe to strong, but from all the bugreports I was involved for
NCL in the last months, it sounds almost realistic :(
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.
Give as much support to the novell client as to openSUSE itself. I'm
sure not everybody is going to install it in an office environment. Some
are geeky (like Pascal and me :) ) and we want to be able to perform our
work on our latest greatest platforms (after all: I already use 11.1 in

A repository containing NCL, that actually can be installed (without
many symlinking tricks) would be a great step in this direction.
And I promise I would submit all the bugs I can find ;) After all: NCL
will probably bi shipped on CODE11 anyhow; CODE11 will be (mostly) based
off openSUSE 11.1. So all the reports you get now for openSUSE 11.1
together with NCL can already be treated before SLE goes out of the
door. I think THAT should be a good motivation, isn't it?
