    Default yast sucks...going back to smart

    Hi


    When I installed opensuse 11 ,the first thing that I noticed and LOVED was yast software manager speed.

    so i decided i didn't need SMART package manager anymore so it was all fine . BUT now I am going back to smart because:
    1) exporting list of installing package ( the packages you are going to install) in Yast does'nt work anymore

    2)renaming added repositories in yast repositories manager leads to unexpected result (like duplicating that repositories with two names)

    Regarding point number 2: The problem that you report (renaming repositories) does not happen on my system. I have renamed, added, deleted many repositories till now and especially after reading your post but things seem to work without flaw.

    Btw, why such question is moved to Soapbox (just asking, hum ) ?

    i added Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_10.3 and then edited it to change it to http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...KDE3/openSUSE_11.0/ but it duplicated it
    though i got this problem in 10.3>>11 Update

    and in my clean install i am using smart (because it also downloads filelist of packages not yet installed)

    Just a guess: because of the title. No problem identified (nevertheless people above try to help, our community is very good at that ).

    rd1381 > Zypper is _not_ designed to modify URL, you need to add a new repo, and remove/disable old repo. You can modify name, priority and keeping package.

    And what you meen by "(because it also downloads filelist of packages not yet installed)" ? All repodata are downloaded with zypper/all other package manager system.

    Just a guess: because of the title. No problem identified (nevertheless people above try to help, our community is very good at that ).
    Oh yeah, good point

    Looks like the post was moved to Soapbox not only because of the title
    but the first post didn't ask for help, it was more of an opinion on why
    the OP moved back to smart.

    I agree, but the title was reason enough imo.

    Changing the web address of a repository = adding a new repository != renaming repository. Incidentally, I just tried changing the url of a repo entry and no duplicates were created. The repo contains different packages, but same name.

    If smart works better for you, great. To each their own, but it seems more like a system issue than anything else.
