Applies to:

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9

PROBLEM: When doing a new installation of SLES9, I found that a user could not run susewatcher and check for new updates.

SOLUTION: On SLES9, with the new https Novell updates you must copy /var/lib/YaST2/you/password to each local user's ~/.yast2/you directory in order for update checking (susewatcher) to work for that user.
