CBP for a (working) usr_desktop does NOT require manual editing of any files.
Otherwise, no offense taken. In my experience, SuSE_the-*itch is a
horror. I earn my living without apology on slick, rock_solid WinME
systems ( solid 10_hours at a time, of-course ...) . Never earned $0.05
from *nix ... but grab-azz Unkil Bill$$ gotta be kept honest. And yep, I
pay for my *nix distros.
