    Default zypper won't update wine

    Hi,

    I only have the default repos added, but I wanted to upgrade wine to the
    latest, so I added the wine repo. I checked and the wine repo definitely
    has a newer version than what I have installed from the main repos. So I
    run "zypper lu" and.... nothing. Says it's up to date. How could this be?

    I tried uninstalling and re-installing but it won't grab the package
    from the wine repo. I tried to force it to install the wine package from
    the wine repo (zypper -r wine_repo), but then it complains about a
    dependency being missing. I guess it needs the other repos to resolve
    the dependencies. Anyhow, I'm at a lost here so any help would be
    appreciated.

    Happy Holidays

    Use Yast Software management
    Filter by repository
    Select wine and follow this principle:

    Well it sound's like maybe the packages weren't switched to the Wine Repo and are still using the main one's?

    I'm not sure how to do it with zypper as tbh apart from a few thing's I normally use YaST (yes I'm lazy).

    You can check in YaST under the Software Management (hit View and click the Repo's bit if it's not in the list) bit that it has selected the wine repo as the main repo. If it hasnt it should ask you to switch to the packages from the wine repo.

    If it's not switched the Repo's I'd say that's where the mismatch is.

    Is this the same as
    Code:
    zypper dup -r 'name-of-wine-repository'
    ?
