    The Online Update feature in Yast Control Center does the same thing the updater applet does. Except you can tell what it's downloading and how much more time it will take.



    The updates appear in the summary box. The packages that each update will affect are in the top right box. It's like installing any other package. You have full control over what you're updating.



    I don't have any updates at the moment, but you get the central idea.

    Hope this helps!

    Right-click the applet in systray, choose Configure, uncheck 'Start update-applet on login', OK, exit update-applet, done.

    Good idea. Use yast online update or zypper. For the latter, try

    zypper ref
    zypper up -t package
    See how that goes.

    Hi, again.

    Luckily I have some updating to do. When you run the Online Update tool from Yast THIS is what it will look like when updates are available.



    As you can see, my update applet shows I have updates, but instead of clicking on it, I'm updating through Yast's Online Update.

    After everything is set to install you just click accept and then it will download and install the patches for you.
