That's one of the reasons I switched over to an entirely LFS system. I got 
tired of not having a clue how my system worked. SuSE has lots of bells and 
whistles, but the system scripts look like they were written by a German. ;-)
They've done so much work to make everything work automagically and with the 
GUI configuration programs, that it is very hard to troubleshoot manually. 

I'm not too thrilled with KDE's stunning lack of documentation, either, but 
that's a BLFS subject.
