openSUSE internals

openSUSE special configuration tools are usually named "YaST", because most of the work is done through YaST, but there are several independent tools one can get to know. We will try to have here a better documentation or links for these tools.

  • YaST - The installation and system management tool
  • Libzypp - The package management library
  • Zypper - The package manager command line interface
  • SuSEfirewall2 - The openSUSE firewall script
