Highlights of YaST Development Sprint 74

March 29th, 2019 by

It took only 73 sprints to complete all YaST features, and there are none left to do. That’s what you might think after reading this article, because we worked on no features, just bug fixes.

It might be related to an upcoming release of SLE 15 SP1. For its openSUSE sibling we have put together a recap of YaST features in the upcoming openSUSE Leap 15.1 (scheduled for May 2019), since Leap 15.0 (May 2018).

No more locale errors during Kubic runtime

Did you know that an installed Kubic (the certified Kubernetes distribution & container-related technologies built by the openSUSE community) only has the American English locale (en_US) available? That is because it intends to be as small as possible (you can run du -h /usr/share/locale if you are curious enough).

However, YaST allows you to change the language and the keyboard layout at the very beginning of the installation process, which will be persisted as the default locale in the installed system. This is the reason for those locale errors mentioned above. Until now. Because we introduced some changes during this sprint to allow that the chosen language will be used only during the installation in case the product needs it.

So, from now on you can go through the installation of Kubic in your preferred language without those errors in the final system and, of course, preserving the selected keyboard layout. Not bad, huh? 😎

Various Fixes

Repositories for add-ons would be marked as disabled after the installation has finished. We have fixed this bug#1127818.

When registering your SUSE Linux Enterprise with the SUSE Customer Center or its proxy such as the SUSE Subscription Management Tool, a network timeout can occur. Formerly you had to use the Back and Next buttons to try again but we have added a Retry button for that.

When creating a new partition or editing an existing one, the widget for the partition type would list the types in a seemingly random order. We have made this widget more boring.
