openSUSE clients with Spacewalk

SUSE Manager screenshot

My team has been busy the last months with the release of SUSE Manager, which was received with very good reviews. There is lot of room for improvements, some of them specific to SUSE products/integration but others in Spacewalk itself.

There is lot of work to do and lot of patches being reviewed. Lot of them are already upstream.

One common question is: if I already have a Spacewalk server, how do I setup openSUSE clients?

Thanks to Michael Calmer, we submitted the required packages to a repository in the openSUSE Build Service. You can find the instructions looking for the SUSE section in the “Registering Clients” page of the official Spacewalk wiki.
