    Shows up on 12.1 (yast 2.21.##) but not 11.4 - looks like a new (and
    unheralded) feature of 12.1.

    Try the gnome version of yast, it has it in plain 11.4.

    Trick: "yast2 --gtk sw_single &" from konsole as root.

    Another gnome feature is that you can undo one of those historic
    operations. Yes, we usually say that the QT version is more powerful, but
    it is not completely so, both are different and have different set of
    features - which is a pity, and a nuisance when we do remote telephone or
    email maintenance, as you can well imagine.

    holy-moly that is cool....THANKS, i had no idea

    that make NO sense to me...why should moving from QT to gtk change the
    features available? i do not understand.

    who would think of doing it that way, and why?

    I use it every day, but the other way round, with --qt to start the QT
    flavour of the package manager, or the "online_update" module. The rest of
    yast is similar on both sides.

    Welcome to the club. Different devs, different goals. They develop
    separately not only the interface, but the engine.

    You gotta be joking. :-)

    AH! last i looked SLED uses Gnome (does it even offer KDE?) so i _guess_
    the commercial side hopes that kpackagekit, apper or whatever KDE can
    come up with will be good enough to dump a QT version of yast package
    management..

    and, _that_ is why they keep delivering a broken kpackagekit/apper to
    openSUSE users.....maybe!

    Yes, SLED installs gnome by default, but it also has kde. I wonder if the
    enterprise side (the clients) will like gnome 3, I guess not much. We will
    have to wait to learn about that.

    Both gnome and kde use packagekit, with different frontends and similar
    problems, because I read that what is at fault is the engine common to both.

    The appeal of packagekit to the devs is that it is maintained upstream, and
    allows plain users to do some updates if authorized. Whatever is maintained
    free of charge is interesting to them.

    I don't think they have any idea of dropping the qt version of kde, though.

    You have to read the factory mail list to keep a bit of track on what they
    will drop on us ;-)
