Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

just type yast
but of course be root:


Usage: /sbin/yast [OPTIONS] [MODULE] [module specific parameters]

        -l, --list      list all available modules
        -g, --geometry  default window size (qt only)
        -s, --style     widget style (qt only)
        -h, --help      this screen

exceptional case for installing packages:
/sbin/yast OPTION <package>

        -i, --install   install rpm package

<package> can be a single short package name (e.g. gvim)
which will be installed with dependency checking, or the full
path to an rpm package (e.g /tmp/gvim.rpm) which will be
installed without dependency checking
