    Default How to ignore patches?


    I'm using Thunderbird 2.0. But /usr/bin/kupdateapplet constantly shows "patch:MozillaThunderbird-1658.noarch". I can't install this patch because Thunderbird 3 is broken for me. It doesn't have "Lightning" and "Funambol" extensions.

    So I want to mark this patch as permanently ignored. Is it possible? Any workaround?

    The info used is the version in rpm database. You could have Thunderbird 2 installed without it looking like it's installed according to rpm and put Thunderbird 3 as Taboo. When YOU first came out, there were actual patch files and you could 'game' things faking an install of an unwanted patch to quieten it up.

    I've had similar issues in past, I think I tried running Yast->Online Update and marking a patch as taboo, but I am not sure that will be a permanent solution for kupdateapplet in your case.

    AFAIK there is no way to make the kupdateapplet ignore any kind of update.

    That's why I uninstalled it and use strictly zypper up for updates.

    If you lock a package in YaST zypper up will not update it.

    Thanks for your it info saved me some aggravation. The updater at one time didn't have this problem. Why they changed it to this is just crazy!
    In my case it's a security update for Pidgin & I don't have it installed or use it!

    Thank you for help. The best way I've found was rename package Thunderbird to Thunderbird2 and recompile. So conflicts disappears and now I'm happy with old TB.
