Summary: openSUSE 10.2 installation on Mac mini requiring CD4
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Beta 1
Platform: Macintosh
OS/Version: SuSE Linux 10.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Installation
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: tsuroerusu@xxxxxxxxx

When installing openSUSE 10.2 Beta 1 on my PowerPC Mac mini, it wanted CD4 just
to install one single package (xorg-x11-fonts-7.2-3.noarch.rpm). This is really
annoying if you are not aware of it, and especially since we're only talking
ONE single package. This breaks the "3-CDs for a default install" rule, and is
not a very pretty surprise, since you can't tell YaST to just grab that package
off the web during the moment you see that it needs CD4.

I also noticed a bunch of Qt4 libraries being installed, and honestly, why
install those out of the box? The typical user of SUSE is probably not a KDE
hacker, and if he is, he knows how to install Qt4 himself.
