Thread: YaST Speed in OpenSUSE 11

  1. #1

    Default YaST Speed in OpenSUSE 11

    Howdy all,

    Don't know if this has been discussed in detail yet, but I've seen a few people mention how YaST is faster in openSUSE 11 than in older versions. I'm wondering how much faster. In my 10.3, I load YaST, click on "Software Management," and have to go do other things while I wait for it to load, even with the repos set to not refresh. Can you tell me, how does YaST package management's speed now compare to other distros' pm systems, such as Synaptic in Ubuntu?

    My single biggest complaint with SUSE since I started using it with 9.3 has been that package management is way too slow. Has that really been fixed in 11.0?

    The speed is amazing if you are used to the times of previous versions. With 12 repositories YaST's Sofrware Management only takes 10-20 seconds from click to open on my system.

    So I say : thumbs up!!
    Have a lot of fun!

    The YAST speed increase is one of the best things about 11.0

    First time during the day is ~12 secs and I have 15+ repo's to update.
    Say I need to install something later in that case it is less than 2 secs, really fast, I like YaST again (hated it for years).

    PS On many discussion boards and forums where openSuSE 11.0/KDE4.0 are duscussed one can see post from people who are beating on YaST, obviously they have not tried openSuSE110./KDE4.0

    Whoa! So you're telling me YaST fully refreshes all your repos in just 12 seconds the first time, and then knows not to refresh them again for the rest of the day?? That is so sweet! Too bad KDE 4.1 isn't out yet or I'd totally switch.

    Thanks everybody for you responses!

    Install it with KDE 3.5.9 for now? I have both KDE 4.0 and 3.5.9 installed with 3.5.9 as my default. It is totally worth the upgrade.

    And like all the other comments say Yast is really fast and OpenSUSE 11.0 is all in all better.

    Just my 2cts

    Yep, I must add that I use openSUSE 11.0 with KDE 3.5.9 (not KDE 4.0.85). For these times.

    Really, I used to hate YaST for being sloooooow, now I love it
