I hate RPM hell. This is why I left Redhat like, 6 years ago. Have I been using Linux for that long? Damn I'm old.
Yeahyeah, I know there's supposedly apt for SUSE, but it's not standard.
And I know there's yast2, but I don't have a damn username/password for it (yet). I tried "yast -i emacs" and after a dozen curses pages of prompts it says:
Insert 'SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 CD3'
Um, no, I'm remote... no can do.
I really just need to learn SUSE before I bitch more. I'm impatient and stuck in my Debian ways.
Why can't the default install/config of yast resort to the network if CD media isn't available? Debian, how I miss thee.
