Everyone,

I have had several issues with patches breaking various services and I
can see from the lists that many other people are having the same
issues... I spoke with someone at Novell and he recommended that I
should *NOT* patch my machine until Novell straightens out the patch
system... The issues with the patch system is that people are installing
patches that are not for their system and they dont even know it... This
is due to the issue with the way the channels are setup... Novell is
working on separate channels for each SP level... Until Novell finishes
this I would highly recommend that you make sure that the patch that you
are installing is a patch that was designed for your system or you can
just wait until Novell completes the work with separating the channels...

My question to Novell... WHEN ARE THE CHANNELS GOING TO BE SEPARATED????

Thanks!
