    Default openSUSE 11.2, YaST 'update to newer version'

    Hi All,

    Installed the latest (greatest) version of openSuSE a few days back. Everything works smoothly, but I have a small issue with YaST.

    With openSuSE 11.1, I used to update to the latest versions (KDE4, OpenOffice, Mozilla etc) by just right-clicking on the list of packages, and choosing the "update if newer version is available" option. This seems to be broken in openSuSE 11.2. What I do get at the top of the package list is an option to switch system packages to those in that particular repository - this isn't ideal as the OSS and non-OSS repositories have the latest versions for some packages when compared to the buildservice.

    Is anyone else having the same problem? Any suggestions to fix this?

    Many thanks.

    Does Package --> All Packages --> Update if newer version available do the same thing?

    Otherwise, 'zypper up' should work.

    Yes, it's a known new "feature". Basically, "zypper up" will not change
    the packages' vendor, by default.

    It was discussed a bit in "factory" list:

    [opensuse-factory] Anit-Vendor Change Extremism - Call for discussion
    http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-f.../msg00405.html

    You can apply the work-around described in that message.
