  • 5 Registering SUSE Linux Enterprise and managing modules/extensions
  • To get technical support and product updates, you need to register and activate SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop with the SUSE Customer Center. It is recommended to register during the installation, since this will enable you to install the system with the latest updates and patches available. However, if you are offline or want to skip the registration step, you can register at any time later from the installed system.

    Modules and extensions add features to your system and allow you to customize the system according to your needs. These components also need to be registered and can be managed with YaST or command line tools. For more details also refer to the Modules and Extensions Quick Start.
