Yast Package Management - return to the search window after installing packages

Feature state

openSUSE-11.4
New

Description

Currently in the GUI based Yast's Package management tool, after you select some packages to install and you click Install, it performs the download and installation. After it is complete it closes the application and comes out. Instead it would be good if again the search box to install further packages is displayed after installing few packages, i.e. go back to the initial view in the application again.

You can alter this behavior by editing the valuie of PKGMGR_ACTION_AT_EXIT in /etc/sysconfig/yast2

That said, I think a default of summary would be optimal.

I tried the suggested edit but refused permission.  I then tried copying the text of the file into my own one in my home folder as suggested at the top of the file when opened.  This did not work so back to square one.

This default 'close after operation' behavior is daft and should be changed even before the next release.

You have to be root to edit the file. You can also use YaST sysconfig module.

Yes, I like this idea. The default should be return to the install window.

Agree, I think the default should be summary.

I think the default should be restart

Isn't this already present in YAST in 11.3 itself ?When the confirmation window for new packages installation comes up you have a check box which you can uncheck which allows you to go back to YAST search module
