One-click WebYaST 1.2 in Studio

Some days ago SUSE released a new version of WebYaST, WebYaST 1.2. It provides better performance, a polished layout and new role management.

For those of you who are not familiar with WebYaST. It is an easy-to-use, web-based configuration and administration tool. That means that you can configure hardware, network, services, security, and many more in a browser.

Since we offer a one-click configuration for WebYaST for a while we decided to upgrade it to 1.2. If you want to add WebYaST 1.2 to your appliance, you just need to go to the configuration tab of and click on the appliance icon. Then scroll down to the 'Additional options' and check the 'Enable WebYaST' checkbox.

This will add the WebYaST 1.2 repository which matches with your applaince's basesystem, add all neccessary WebYaST patterns & packages and do some additional configuration.
For more information take a look at this Blog.

In case your appliance already has WebYaST 1.1 enabled you can upgrade to 1.2 by un-checking the Enable WebYaST checkbox and proceed with the instructions above.
This is not required for openSUSE 11.4 appliances, as the 11.4 WebYaST repository got the newer packages since a while.

And that is how WebYaST 1.2 looks like:
