I installed openSUSE Leap 15.0 today to set up a headless server.

Since, by default, the system has a strict firewall configuration through IP
tables such that an OpenSSH server won't work, I wanted to configure the
firewall using YaST from the command line.

When trying to open the YaST firewall module, I am greeted by an error

───┐ │ Error

Unfortunately, the package "firewall-cmd" doesn't exist. Installing
"firewall-config", on the other hand, would pull in lots of GtK
dependencies which I would like to avoid.

Is the missing "firewall-cmd" package intentional? If yes, the error message
needs to be updated.

I had exactly the same thoughts about the Gtk packages, ditto headless server,
found the YaST ncurses version did not work ( as appeared to be announced )
and decided to accept the deps and installed firewall-config. And have not
regretted that step one single moment. I run it over an ssh connection.
