Thread: ordering of packages for a "zypper dup" by group ?

  1. #1

    Default ordering of packages for a "zypper dup" by group ?

    I am used to upgrading from one version of opensuse to another with zypper dup (already did that with a 11.0 -> 11.1 after first upgrading zypper).
    I recently did that for 11.2 M6 -> M7.
    This time I had an internet connection failure during the dist upgrade. I tried to do again zypper dup but there was a Pb with librpm due to inconsistencies between versions of different packages, so that I have had to get some packages by hand on the download.opensuse.org site and force their installation by an rpm -ivh --force after, to be able to resume the zypper dup.

    After this long intro, my question (or suggestion) is :
    why not order the packages in a zypper dup by groups of packages, so that for example all the base packages would all be updated first, then those for X11, KDE and/or gnome, etc... ?
    Looking at the order at which the packages were downloaded and installed this time and previous times, I could not figure out the systematic for the order, since packages concerning the same sub-system (e.g. yast) were really not consecutive !...

    No, I never had such troubles though I used zypper dup several times and on several machines. Sorry I cannot help you.
