Hi,

I'd like to announce one major change in openSUSE 11.1 / SLE 11:
...
This statically-defined library has been obsoleted by feature "Service Definitions Added via Packages" since openSUSE 10.3, openSUSE 11.0 still contains these definitions but some have been already replaced with the new dynamically-defined services.
...
Please, make sure your packages provide service definitions for SuSEfirewall2. See also:
http://en.opensuse.org/SuSEfirewall2/Service_Definitions_Added_via_Packages

AFAICS this page describes the behavior added in 10.3. So what exactly
will be changed in 11.1?

There will be no hard-coded services in SuSEFirewallServices YaST library anymore. Everything must be dynamically loaded otherwise YaST Firewall will ignore these open ports and show them only in "Advanced Configuration" as an unnamed set of allowed ports.

In openSUSE 11.0, you can still open YaST Firewall and see "Samba Server" in services to allow without having samba-server installed. But YaST Firewall can not be responsible for defining ports that should be open for a particular service, instead that package/er is responsible.

Bye
L.
