It's insane to have this kind of software written in MS .Net wizwaz.

Yast will get better again in the next version(s). The new package management library is a large change and has to be brought up again to the old standards. But it's a good change: having multiple repositories is already far better than before and having patches managed by the same system is a very nice thing, too.
Just give them a little time.

I sort of doubt it. (You have the source: look at it. Oops, look, it
doesn't phone home.)
(I'm just trying to figure out what on earth AppArmor would phone home
about. `Hey, this guy just tried to run an application requiring
CAP_NET_ADMIN!' I'm sure that would simply *fascinate* everyone.)

zend/zmd and beagle eat memory like mad and cpu resources to boot.
apparmor broke some instrumentation stuff i use.
firefox phones home. ( actually to some google site
in a repeating pattern. keep the ISDN line up)
moving forward through all the various SuSE
versions starting with 6.3 was never such a
hassel as with this last step to 10.2.
The problem I see is that it has developed into a field of

I'd be interested in hearing how AppArmor broke your instramentation package. as I understand AA it only affects things that it's configured for, if it didn't know about your software it shouldn't have affected it.

Or even conveniently bring up different sets of services at boot time?
Eg. you would get a menu with entries like "broadband", "dialup", "a place
where I have a fixed IP address N.N.N.N", "no network at all" etc. before
init runs, and each could be made to start up different sets of things.
(This obviously is useful only on systems normally booted with a user in
attendance, like desktops and laptops).
The SysV init runlevels do not handle this, because they are rather
hierarchical (level N assumes services started at level N-1 are running).
In this case it is not a question of network vs no network, but
different kinds of network.
I guess what I want isn't very hard to implement in principle, but
it would probably be very distribution-dependent. I wonder if there
is existing software like this?

"SCPM enables your system to save different configurations in profiles. You can boot directly into a profile as well as switch profiles at run time. It is the successor of scheme management."

My critique was about having expensive ( resourcewise ) software
installed and running by default ( and only an absolute minority
of users having any real use for that.)
YaST currently is too splintered to give access to switching
these features in a meaningfull way.
Forex adding some timesource via serial line breaks _silently_
on apparmor rules for ntpd. ( had some Talk, fixed )
The answers to my original post are up to slahdot level.

However, it's quite unlikely that a random argument you pick will
name-clash, and if it does you can always rename it.

P.S.: Anyone knows the cleanest way to shut off beagle entirely?

should also work and is less hackish
