What I would love to see is a button in Yast that provides for backing up a list of installed applications and repositories into a text file so you can run an install and point to that text file to have all the applications you’ve already installed on top of the refreshed installation.
What a beautiful idea. I thought to ask for a possibility like this recently. This would reduce part of the opportunity cost of a fresh install. Dragonbite, why don’t you put this in Openfate, I will vote for it
Note the problem with the Intel 855GM. To fix this problem, which was a regression somewhere in the Kernel code (or somewhere else), WILL take longer than the openSUSE 2-releases+2 months. Possible 2 or even 3 years to identify and then fix the problem in the kernel.
Hence IMHO the openSUSE 2-releases+2months lifetime is not consistent with the time to fix upstream Linux problems.
