Thread: Changes in Yast2 update recommendations?

  1. #1

    Default Changes in Yast2 update recommendations?

    updated a 11.1 machine to RC2 and Yast2 has gone through some significant changes. I recall seeing a post here refering from something on the mailing list that stated that Yast2 was "sorting" updates by priority level (as it had before) AND by vendor.

    the point being that more recent packages from a different vendor would not be included in the "All packages update" and wouldn't be shown as available. There was a config modification to disable the vendor parsing, but i can't seem to find my way back to that post... (i'll plead alzheimers)

    Can anyone give me the correct file modification to display all available updates from all vendors?

    (no update problems on this machine so far, other than the privoxy package in the 11.1/oss repo is broken)

    Thanks for your assistance, Camaleon, i will post it here too for others:

    Options for finding packages not from the original vendor in Yast2 11.2. (oldcpu will probably shoot me)


    1) Manually go to the Versions tab in YaST *every* time you want to replace a
    distro package with a 3rd party one - with *nothing* whatsoever telling you
    that an upgrade is actually available for your choosing - you must be aware of
    this yourself.

    2) Set 'solver.AllowVenderChange = true' in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf

    3) create '/etc/zypp/vendors.d/foobar' with your trusted vendors.

    if you read through the zypp.conf file it is excellently commented. I learned a lot (how to stop downloading deltarpms since i zypper mr -ka)
