There are plenty of good reasons to deploy openSUSE on a Raspberry Pi. But probably the most compelling one is the YaST configuration tool. It acts as a graphical control center that gives you the ability to configure and manage practically all system settings without fiddling with arcane commands in the terminal. Of course, some tasks are easier to accomplish from the command line. Indeed, installing and managing packages with the zypper command-line tool is much faster than going through the required steps in YaST. But there are situations where you'd prefer to use YaST instead of the terminal. Deploying and configuring various servers is one scenario where YaST can prove its worth. And since enlisting Raspberry Pi for various server duties is one of the most common uses for the little machine, using YaST for that can save you a lot of time and effort.

NFS, in particular, can be tricky to set up. But YaST makes it supremely easy to transform a Raspberry Pi into a small and efficient openSUSE-based NFS server. The talk will offer step-by-step instructions on how to use YaST to install, deploy, and configure NFS on a Raspberry Pi as well as how to configure NFS clients. The overall purpose of the talk is to demonstrate how to leverage the power of YaST to solve complex technical problems with a minimum of effort.
