Feature #309483, revision 11
Title: Create Spacewalk compliance

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Stephan Kleine (bitshuffler)

We are currently lacking some free solution to manage servers /
Red Hats Spacewalk ( ) provides their
enterprise solution to that problem.
Please make [open]SUSE compatible with Spacewalk so it will be possible
to manage it together with Red Hats products so it evolves to a one
stop solution to manage linux products within an enterprise enviroment
regardless of the vendor.

I see this can be useful for SLE, but openSUSE has a different target
in my opinion, so I voted against this.

#2: Per Jessen (pjessen) (2010-05-11 19:17:01)
Presumably Spacewalk has some kind of plugin mechanism for making it
work with different architectures/systems - writing such a plugin might
be a better approach.

#3: Marcus Moeller (marcusmoeller) (2010-05-16 09:39:22)
Spacewalk Client packages are already available for:
openSUSE 11.0
SLE 10
Best Regards

Are you aware that Spacewalk, even being free, requires Oracle right?

+ #5: Stephan Kleine (bitshuffler) (2010-05-18 01:40:59) (reply to #4)
+ Sure, but:
+ 1) there's an "Oracle Express Edition" which is free to use (correct me
+ if I'm wrong on that).
+ 2) there's ongoing work to make it compatible with PostgreSQL.
+ So, if we make [open]SUSE compatible with it until PostgreSQL support
+ is done I'm fine.
