Thread: Yast Exits After Install of Packages

    Default Yast Exits After Install of Packages

    Here is a simple question: Is it possible to configure Yast Software Manager module so that it does not completely exit when done installing a package? It get's annoying to search for a package and install it, the software manager exits, you then have to reopen it, install another etc. a few minutes later.

    Seems this would be a config option, but if so I can't seem to find it.

    Cheers,
    Lews Therin

    Yes it's possible. Select a different value (such as Summary) for PKGMGR_ACTION_ON_EXIT in the /etc/sysconfig editor from YaST.

    Are you using KDE, I do not know if you can configure that in KDE. But in Gnome there is Tick box in the window when installation starts. The Check box is for whether you want to close Yast after installation or close it.

    Hey Oysterboy,

    Perfect - that worked great. I hadn't thought to look at sysconfig.

    Thanks!

    Hey oysterboy!

    I didn't know this trick. I get used to this annoyance, thinking nothing couldn't be done.

    Merci mec.
