I agree, the packages they distribute SHOULD work, but I'm not
upset or shocked that some don't work.
The other side of the problem is maybe QA guy did test the package
and when he "installs" Suse it works for him(in his configuration),
but when you the user installs Suse in your "configuration" it
doesn't work. So some package B causes a problem with package A
when the two are installed along with package D, E, F, G, H,
and Z. SO if you don't installed F then everything works.
The point is, there are too many variables, to check that the package
works with every other package in the distro.
I really don't think they put that much effort as you say into
deciding packages for their distro.
Perhaps someone from Suse can enlighten us on this?
