About YaST on RHEL/EL, only the main modules and some modules we needed are ported. YaST on RHEL4/EL4 has been opened to download and YaST on RHEL5/EL5 will be uploaded soon. The codes will be contributed as soon as possible too.

I think the codes and experience can help YaST on Fedora or other distributions. So I would like to work on "YaST on other Distributions"

Hi Pearly,

good to hear that!
Would you like to come over to Nuremberg for the workshop? Yes, I
realize that it is a long way and short notice.

I looked at last year and I was
somewhat dissappointed seeing that you were using yast2-2.9.x. That
is old, it comes from SLES9, released in 2004, and we released
SLES10 in 2006 already. Yesterday openSUSE 11.0 came out having
yast2-2.16.x, and SLES 11 will have 2.17.x.
I mean, if you use a code base that is too old, it will not be
possible to merge your patches to the current development tree.

I understand that you have already started porting for RHEL5, right?
Can you share the source/patches with us?

Hi, Martin

Thanks for your invitation, but for some personal reason, I can't go to Nuremberg to attend the workshop.

Porting YaST to RHEL/EL is for an Oracle product Oracle Enterprise Manager, so we have to use the same version YaST between SLES9 and RHEL4/EL4, though it is old.

YaST for RHEL5/EL5 is ported from the version of SLES10SP1 and it is in testing now. I will share the sources/patches when it is finished.
