There is never an unsolvable problem in *nix!
Unix is the best place to find solutions - I am always stumbling on new
solutions - it's such a joy! ***
I use SuSE regularly but mainly Solaris - I get a bit annoyed by the init
and rc scripts being in the wrong place - Haven't SuSE changed this in
Anyway - there are many ways round it (for the user - not to be expected of
vendors, except maybe SuSE themselves)
- reconfigure init (don't do this unless you don't want to call your distro
SuSE anymore - it makes new problem for old SuSE RPMs),
- Create a svr4 dir tree for installs to write to and script a mv/cp to run
after installation (very complete but slightly awkward).
Symlinks might not be followed so we'll not consider that one....
*** A few weeks ago I had a one line awk script which had a limit with open
files - I used a2p and the perl script worked first time!

The problem is that suse linux puts its bootup scripts in a different
directory to other RPM-based linux distributions .. and so the fixed paths
in the webmin RPM will be wrong on suse linux. As far as I can tell, this
problem is unsolvable :(
