Installing Software with YaST

The easiest way to install software is straight from the installation media using the YaST utility. YaST offers an easy interface where you can browse for and select available software. Also with YaST, you can easily install software that isn't included with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10. In the following sections, you will learn how to perform both tasks.

Caution Although it is possible to install everything you want on your SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, you should use extreme caution in doing so. If the software isn't furnished on the installation media, Novell does not support it. As a result, you may lose support on your entire system. Usually this will not be true for "regular" programs, but be careful when installing drivers, libraries, and kernel modules.
