This is an entry of pure frustration. Today I tried to install rsync on a modified SLES 8 installation to create a case study to use rsync to create a mirror of one of our working folders in basel, switzerland.
While I used YaST to install the package, the automatic conflict solving reinstalled an old version of samba2. But we use samba3 on our systems.
The installation of 500 kbs of software crashed the hole infrastructure… Thanks to YaST!
I’m happy that I could fix it within 10 or 15 minutes while reinstalling the samba3 packages.
