[Bug 849743] New: DSL-configuration - if user control is activated, smpppd is attempted to be installed endlessly

Summary: DSL-configuration - if user control is activated,
smpppd is attempted to be installed endlessly
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.3
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

If you configure a DSL interface with user control, both smpppd and qinternet
are mandatory. Either it should be installed by default as it is only small or
the checkbox "Erlaube Ger├Ątesteuerung ohne root-Rechte mit Qinternet" should be
off by default.
If something goes wrong with the installation the system tries endlessly to
install smpppd without success. As it is quite normal that something goes wrong
initially, this behaviour is boring - and not neccessary.

Thank you for looking into this!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install DSL via Yast2
2.Keep Checkbox active and have something go wrong
Actual Results:
You end up in an endless attempt of yast to install both smpppd and qinternet.
If something with the installation might go wrong, this is something to happen
quite often and is very boring.

Expected Results:
Maybe one single message that the installation of smpppd has failed because of
a failed connection, but not an endless loop of attempts to install something
that is currently not available, implying that this is the root cause of
failure though it is only a consequence of the failed connection.
