Last week I downloaded and installed Bernhard's latest r-pi image. A-ok. Boot, no problem, zypper in yast, firewall and other modules. All fine.
Except - Only one issue, I had a hardware issue with an external SSD drive setup. It gave me a bunch of errors when attempting to mount the drive. Based on other inquiries around the error message, it seemed that it might most likely be a firmware issue. I can't reproduce the issue (a mounting error) in Raspbian. And I don't think I can get rpi-update to work in openSuse. Rpi-update seems to be the fix.
It seems to me that rpi-update is going to be a key program - or it contains key functionality. I do not program, or normally even play much at this level - so I could be way wrong. But the pi foundation uses rpi-update to distribute firmware updates.
Is there some way I can get rpi-update on my openSUSE pi?
Or, can I somehow get the same functionality through a different method/program?
Or, am I missing something I should know?
This is to be a headless file server, so I would like to have Yast back.
