I DID wonder about that but you certainly do have access to the patches
via YOU during an evaluation - otherwise what meaning would a time
limited evaluation have?
And as I said, when I placed a ticket I got pointed to the right place
on the portal, which required me to login with my eval. credentials.
So, it may well be that their portal code is borked in such a way that
eval. credentials don't show you the appropriate information on the
front page. TBH I wouldn't find that terribly surprising as teh Novell
and SuSE web sites are a bit of a mess at the moment, due to the Novell
takeover of SuSE. (And in fairness, Novell freely admits this)
