    Default Problems updating the system

    Hi,

    I was having no problems with Yast up to now. I always check once a week for updates but, this time, I found some KDE4 components showed in red. Seems that opensuse-11.1-Oss and openSUSE-11.1-Update were having more priority over the KDE4 repos... but this is not the case as I attach below.

    For example, I have kde4-dolphin 4.2.90-91.4 (4.1.3-3.8.9) as well as all the kde4-* components in the mentioned repos.

    Does anybody is having the same this days? Are the Opensuse guys changing something among the repos.? Any help would be appreciated. Also let me know which extra output would be useful.

    Thank you very much!

    All the package names are changing from the kde4 prefix eg: kde4-dolphin

    Is now just dolphin.
    see this thread I started:
    KDE4.3 Application Name changes - openSUSE Forums

    This is how you suffer if you use development. Great fun, for me at least!

    Right! Thanks for the tip! I read the thread but something is not clear to me. How should I fix this? What you mean by "back and forth" in that post? You mean to downgrade and re run the update?

    Sorry for my confusion. and thank you very much once more.

    No. You have to use Repository view.
    In 'System' you can identify packages in Red colour particularly with the kde4- prefix eg: kde4-dolphin
    This can be marked to delete
    Then switch to factory kde4 desktop repo filter and check to see 'dolphin' is checked for install.
    Some packages - when you mark to delete the kde4- version, will auto mark the new package, but this does not happen with all of them.
    So that is what I mean. You have to go back and forth between the system and the factory kde4.

    If you don't understand this, you shouldn't really be using development repo's.

    N.B.
    When examining each package in system, if it only offers a downgrade to 4.1.3 version, these are the ones. So they are RED and only offer a version in kde4.1.3 from the oss repo

    Thanks, I get the idea. I'll give it a try.
