I've been doing hand to hand combat with a test server for a little over a
month now and it was winning. Somewhere during the update process nici
would get clobbered and I would loose my nss volume and a few other
things. I could never figure out where nici was broken.

I found sp2 over the weekend. Created the CDs (10) and did another fresh
install. The updates clobbered nici again but this time it was an easy
fix.

<sauntering> That's right. We bad.

Pre sp2 I never did figure it out. Redcarpet, I'm assuming, deleted
the nici folder in /var/novell. I created a symlink to
/var/opt/novell/nici and all is well.

This really had me bugged because I have an install next week.

Yeah, the update process & method has been changing between SLES 9, SLES
9 SP2, SLES 9 SP3, SLES 10, & now SLES 10 SP1.

On top of that we've got novell services in directories like

/opt/novell
/var/novell
/var/opt/novell

Seems to be madness in the method! Crazy.

At least it is not /windows /windows/system /windows/system32 etc. :)

Well, just imagine an operating system that would put 64 bit files into a
directory called system32 and 32 bit files into a directory called syswow64

Good Grief!!!

Haven't played with pieces of flat transparent silicon dioxide for a while
now so have not seen the chaos that must be going on as standards ( I use
that word loosely ) change between minor version upgrades of the visual
family of IDEs.
