  That nonsense again?  Well, you're welcome to use another open source RADIUS server.  I'm sure that will be better.  Or, a commercial one.

  It's trivial.  Go to  Type "suse" into the search bar.  Clock on the second link.  It gives detailed instructions on how to build a Suse package.

  But you're right... the FreeRADIUS documentation is crap.

  The stop whining, and read the existing documentation.  Don't ask questions about a version of the server which is 8 years old.

  And if you want help, stop complaining, and start doing some work on your own.  If you make it clear that your priority is getting things done, you will have the problem solved quickly.  If you make it clear your priority is complaining, you will be unsubscribed from the list, and permanently banned.

 This list is for people who want help with FreeRADIUS.  People who do nothing but complain can go somewhere else.
