    Default too many repositories?????

    hello all,
    i have not so much of a problem than an annoyance ... i am ask to update between 150 to 250 packages every day ... i do suspect, it has got to do with the repositories i have got activated, of which some may try to out do each other, or update back and forth between each other, or something ... can someone help me clean that up, so that update comes back to a normal pace ... here are the repositories i have activated:

    Default Re: too many repositories?????

    Hi,

    it is quite normal that there are often changes on the kde 4 repositories. I recognized that the contents changes in general once per day and I guess that this is the biggest part of the updated packages. The only thing you can do is not to update you kde packages every day

    Hope this helps

    Default Re: too many repositories?????

    These ae the 5 I recommend whole heartedly or variants of it seems you have mirrors in there and maybe some duplicates...

    Now to the others Well guess seeming as your using 4.2 you're going to need them..

    Repository 'KDE 4.2 Community' ist aktuell.
    Repository 'KDE 4.2 Desktop' ist aktuell.
    Repository 'KDE 4.2 Extra Apps' ist aktuell.

    As for the others well think your libdvdcss one may occasionally throw one up with ffmpeg iirc, the others shouldn't be too bad. You have mozilla guess so you get the latest, java (I doubt this would conflict much)ditto, OO your decision but again wouldn't thought you should have any troubles, webcam ditto, now xine maybe.

    Only thing I can perhaps see is slightly different ffmpeg's and such like from OSS, libdvdcss, and xine. If you're just going in circles with multimedia I would suspect these.

    I only ever recommend the first 5/(variant with nvidia) after those it becomes a management thing and QA can't be guaranteed.
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.
