I had just set up a new server with sles10sp2 and zen 10.2.0 (sp2?) and I
tried updating it through the web interface. It ended up downloading 4 out
of 5 updates correctly and the last one was stuck at 86% for about an hour,
so I figured I'd cancel it and retry. But then it was stuck at 'canceling'
for an hour, even tried rebooting the server but it would not budge. Then i
found some field test file which described something like this and then i
couldnt get the login screen to even pop up anymore.

Did i overlook something here ?

Right now I'm just doing a full re-install of the server because that seems
to be quicker then trying to figure out what is wrong .. but this does not
really get my hopes up for putting this thing into production.
