Re: change in behavior from 1.2.x to 2.x (was "Re: Schemacheck")


it is always dangerous to just hit the "update" button and expect the OS to
do the right thing. even if SuSE only had OpenLDAP 2.x in version 7.1 (which
michael already disproved) the problem is not OpenLDAP, it would be SuSE
forcing you into this change without warning.

by the way, RedHat has similar problems when "upgrading". it will happily
install a ton of packages you never had in your previous release. it goes
far to make sure that you use gnome, even if your previous install used KDE
and you made sure there was no trace of gnome on the system.

next time, just do a custom upgrade and select the packages you really want.
