Weird. I saw this this morning because I'm slow:
No new patches will be put on ftp.novell.com (ftp://ftp.novell.com/) or FileFinder (http://support.novell.com/filefinder) after January 12, 2007 because patches are being moved to the Novell Downloads website.So, in other words, downloading patches will require a novell.com login from now on. Not that I mind, I have that. But I find such requirements annoying from other vendors.
On the evening of January 16th, all new patches and all patches currently on FileFinder will be made available on the Novell Downloads web site http://download.
novell.com/ instead of through FileFinder and ftp.novell.com.
To allow transition time, patches that are currently on ftp.novell.com will remain there until February 12th at 5:00 PM Mountain Time. At that point in time, all patches in the /pub directory will be taken off ftp.novell.com and will need to be accessed on the Novell Downloads web site.
