I just make it available on github a post-installation script for openSUSE. I hope he can help someone.

i just glanced at the script and have a few questions:

have you discovered YaST Software Management, or Software
Repositories, or zypper??

are you aware that YaST Software Management includes ‘patterns’ for
things like servers, and list different server software?

and, the same for all sorts of development tools–right there already
listed?

have you yet read the paragraph beginning with “IMPORTANT” in this
posting: http://tinyurl.com/33qc9vu

hmmmmm…i may be wrong but to me it appears you have invented a
script to meet a vacuum which does not exist…

to your credit you have shown a great willingness to be helpful, but
as far as i can see you have produced a script that i would not
suggest to a new openSUSE user, and an experienced user (already
familiar with YaST and zypper) would not need…

you might wish to review this section of the documentation:

hI DenverD,

I’m using SUSE since SUSE Linux 7.3, so i know a little YaST …

I’m not really agree with you, maybe it’s not suitable for beginners and maybe it’s not suitable for advanced users of openSUSE but you forgot one category: intermediate users other distibutions (Debian/Ubuntu , Fedora, Mageia …) that use these scripts to quotidient post installation. It’s really important for them to configure and install their scripts and their migration goes better. (Perhaps it’s psychological …)

I manage hundreds of machines and I can tell you that these scripts make me gain a lot of time. (even on SUSE / openSUSE)

Best regards
