    Default *sigh* And so it begins...Trouble with updating right after install

    Just installed 11.2 and i'm having trouble with all of the software management. the updater applet, the repository setting, all of it... here is an error i am getting from the applet when i try to update...

    "ERROR: DBus error: unable to get transaction id from packagekit"

    it says in the update window there is a dummy patch available but i can't do anything with it. if i delete it from the list it comes back...

    if i click to add/remove repositories it does nothing...WTH

    apparently i can't get my wireless working until i can add a repo...right out of the gate...this is not a good sign...

    well, that will not do anything...Linux is not windows and windows
    procedures will not work here

    what operating system are you using?
    what version?
    what desktop environment?
    where did you down load it from?
    did you check the install media for errors prior to installing?
    are you having other problems?
    have you uninstalled YaST?
