    Lightbulb how to use the new zypper in oS 10.3 ?

    hi,

    is there a way to install and use new zypper from oS 11 with oS 10.3??

    thanks in advance!

    ps. I hope that this question was not answered before, but it's pretty hard to construct a good search patterm for it.

    Afaik, you can add the zypp:svn and YaST:SVN repos to update
    Index of /repositories/zypp:/svn/openSUSE_10.3
    Index of /repositories/YaST:/SVN/openSUSE_10.3

    You can install it by adding the Zypp and YAST backports from
    Index of /repositories/zypp:/Backport/openSUSE_10.3
    &
    Index of /repositories/YaST:/Backport/openSUSE_10.3

    However, this HIGHLY unsupported and it can cause all kinds of issues - including YAST software no longer functioning normally, "eternal installation loops" and other issues.

    I suggest an upgrade to 11.0 - it's worth it.
