The SUSE system configuration is controlled by SUSE-specific control files that the system application SuSEconfig uses to write application-specific configuration files. This enables the user to configure services and server processes without having to understand application-specific configuration files. When all packages have been installed, SuSEconfig picks up the default configuration files installed by SUSE and writes out specific application configurations.
SuSEconfig is a core element of the SUSE system and allows YaST to maintain configuration files for services it can control. Any time you make changes to a service using YaST, SuSEconfig will be called to commit those changes.
