    Default Protest! scpm must be included back to SuSE

    SCPM used to be a very useful tool esp. for laptop users that had to operate in varying environments!

    The alternative offered (NetworkManager) is absolutely unacceptable: it has no relation whatsoever to the functionality that scpm used to offer - and please do not insult our intelligence by offering silly hints of the type "use NetworkManager instead"!

    SuSE is supposed to be a serious distribution: it is supposed to be addressed to people that use Linux to do a job - not computer kids that see all this a run around the block! being serious means preserving continuity so that users tend to their own problems - not those their O.S. creates for them!

    P.S. I tried to run NetworkManager - it showed absolutely no respect for the settings of my network - changed my IP - everything stopped working for a horrid 15 minutes !!!!!

    Submit your request here:

    openFATE

    But first search to make sure it hasn't already been requested. If it has, vote for it!

    It has been removed. The maintainer left Novell, and there is no current maintainer. This has been
    explained recently in the opensuse mail list (Thread: I want SCPM back!)

    I found "Bug 620409". There might be a FATE, haven't looked yet.

    I did not see any openfate creation, so I created one, requesting it be added back to 11.3, and kept in future releases. Please swing by and vote for it to be included:

    I voted it up. More and more I see the "world" wanting a (worthless)
    network mgmt system like Windows. One that understands little and assumes a
    lot. Thus we have things like NetworkManager which is cool and also stupid.

    So... while I can't say that scpm is needed.... I'm VERY sympathetic to the
    cause... BECAUSE I see a lot of people doing some really, really, really
    stupid things right now in Linux distro user space (and somewhat in kernel
    space as well).

    The idea that a Linux distro MUST conform the idiocy found in Windows SHOULD
    not be a goal of any Linux distro.... not matter how much peer pressure is
    out there that says "it's the only way".

    Absolutely. I would use Windows as the rest of the world, if not. Less fighting.

    That is the tension between commercial Linux and user based Linux. Commercial Linux is chasing dollars and MS has all the dollars so they strive to duplicate the "user experience"

    I don't want to do things the MS way. If I do I need to use Windows it's a separate computer. I don't even allow it on my main computer.
