do not quit "Install/Remove Software" after it's done

It's a litte weird that when the software manager finishes installing the new softwares (packages) it quits automatically. I often want to intall more packages or see what happened during the install.

Most of the times i don't watch all the installation process. I just minimize it and go do something else. I just want to come back and see what if the process went all fine, but it quits with no messages.

I don't know if there's a reason for this behaviour, but i think it would be nicer if it comes back to the package selection screen with a message.

I think you're right, for me, this is the only with Packagemanagement left on openSUSE.

I think, only the gtk UI suffers from this missing feature.

Hi Karl!

The gtk UI in openSUSE 11.3 (as of Milestone 7) no longer misses this feature. It is implemented as a confirmation dialog that pops up when you select all required packages for installation. The dialog-box shows the amount of downloads YaST will make, and has a check-box that reads "Close window when finished" or something similar. If you un-check it then you are returned to the package-manager after installation of all the packages. The interface also remembers your previous choice, so that if you like the window not closing you can de-select this just once and returning to the package manager after the installation is done is the behaviour that will happen every time since then.

Hope that clarifies things.

I confirm that (just found the check box). I must say it's not very obvious. Maybe it should default to "not close" ?
