OK so first off, I’m really new to Linux. My *UX background is HP-UX (for quite a few years) and I must say I’m surprised that SLES is so different from the Unix that I’m used to.
I’ve just installed a 60 day evaluation of SLES 11 SP2 that I want to run as a Xen server and have just (successfully) run Online Update for the first time.
I stumbled at an early hurdle in that the documentation said to run it from YaST, however it was nowhere to be seen in YaST(2). In the end I ran ‘yast2 online_update’ from the command line and that worked a treat.
My question (hopefully an easy one) is: how do I add an ‘Online Update’ icon to the ‘Software’ section of yast2?
