Just a note for the few 11.0 boxes left out there. If you are updating
your box
with some of the newer packages in build service, etc... do NOT update zlib,
zlib-32bit and zlib-devel to 1.2.5 from 1.2.3 -- it will break just about
everything yast and gtk related (sw_single, firefox, thunderbird, gnome,

32 bit system ?


I pulled zlib from /Archiving/SLE_11/ which provided a lot of excellent updates
to compression libs and apps. All worked great except for zlib. First indication
of a problems was yast sw_single exploding with the following:

YaST got signal 11 at YCP file XML.ycp:3
/sbin/yast2: line 421: 7746 Segmentation fault $ybindir/y2base $module

At first I thought I had pulled in an incompatible Qt library, but then I found
the following which pointed to libz and the solution:
