why are the service files 'incompatible' ?

The files generated by fwbuilder are not compatible with openSUSE, as they include for instance routing rules. This conflicts with routing handled by openSUSE (/etc/sysconfig/network/).

it 'can' include, but that depends on config of 'Managing interfaces and addresses'. I did switch off interface handling by fwbuilder. And there is NO conflict.

It's a systemV script, instead of systemd. Still includes, for instance:
load_modules "nat " configure_interfaces verify_interfaces

Even tough these functions don't do anything, when the "Configure interfaces of the firewall machine" and "Add virtual interfaces for NAT" are disabled.

Regarding, the previous service script. The name is always a specific name. The script name fwbuilder like the gui, this conflicts.

I don't think that openSUSE should provide a systemd script yet.

Because a user will standard compile rules with network interface etc settings and the standard name is not automatically choosen. OpenSUSE is Linux distro that can be used by users without in depth Linux knowledge.

Therefore I don't want to add the script for now.

User without in depth Linux knowledge should not make use of fwbuilder and should not install the gui on the firewall itself. And how do you start the firewall no matter if the script set network settings or not ? What is your real problem ?
