Which is kind of a setback I agree, but 99% of SuSE customers don't use
those two tools, I guess. I know that is not a valid argument, but it
sure didn't make things more difficult for SuSE to decide: Let's roll
9.0 now.

I guess that's certainly the case when you are a paying SuSE customer.

The more unskilled user doesn't know how to use nmap at all. In fact, if
you're not able to install a single RPM then you shouldn't be using nmap
at all. But that's just my opinion. The same goes for Tripwire.

We already have. Or are you still using MS products? ;-)

I just don't understand the hostile tone here, because obviously there
_is_ a solution everybody here can work out in less than 10 minutes. So
relax and give the guys the time they need. I rather want it working
when they release the fix and not have to fix a second time.

kind regards,
Tobias W.
