Title: Yast Package Management - return to the search window after
installing packages

openSUSE-11.4: New
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Ashwin G (ash25)
Partner organization:

Currently in the GUI based Yast's Package management tool, after you
select some packages to install and you click Install, it performs the
download and installation. After it is complete it closes the
application and comes out. Instead it would be good if again the search
box to install further packages is displayed after installing few
packages, i.e. go back to the initial view in the application again.

You can alter this behavior by editing the valuie of
PKGMGR_ACTION_AT_EXIT in /etc/sysconfig/yast2
That said, I think a default of summary would be optimal.

I tried the suggested edit but refused permission.  I then tried
copying the text of the file into my own one in my home folder as
suggested at the top of the file when opened.  This did not work so
back to square one.
This default 'close after operation' behavior is daft and should be
changed even before the next release.

You have to be root to edit the file. You can also use YaST sysconfig

#3: Brian Marr (cabernet) (2010-07-29 00:43:12)
Yes, I like this idea. The default should be return to the install

#5: Will Bickerstaff (wdbstaff) (2010-08-05 19:18:56)
Agree, I think the default should be summary.

#6: cochise césar (cochisecesar) (2010-08-05 21:54:33)
I think the default should be restart

+ Isn't this already present in YAST in 11.3 itself ?When the
+ confirmation window for new packages installation comes up you have a
+ check box which you can uncheck which allows you to go back to YAST
+ search module
