    Maybe you should start a new thread with proper subject to get some help regarding sound. Here is the best place to post your thread.

    Thanks Carl for the hint.
    Actually i use that way to update the whole system, which in most cases resolve the dependency and vendor issues. For example, K3b which some time have new packages in Factory but some time it have in OSS. If i install from Factory, and OSS have new version for k3b, so in the software management it will mark it as Red, which personally i don't like. So i keep update the system with vendor change.

    Appreciate your idea, in the next update i will add new method as method-3 to install from terminal with selected repos.

    it's just that once we use the switch or dup or dup -r, we will break some multi-media, including k3b.Your way or mine will do the same thing. Users need to be aware that they need to switch the vendor back to packman for k3b, kaffeine and possibly others.

    My zypper dup -r, just reduces some other system wide upgrades which may switch from packman to 'other' when you do zypper dup.

    Once you have the upgrade complete and all packages to the correct vendor, zypper up is sufficient. Or view in SManager and repo filter then update all in this list if newer ver avail. working thru each repo as required.

    Although Zypper is a great tool, handling packages' vendors is still a mystery to me

    I've set up many repositories to get the latest&greatest software, but to get the latest versions of packages I actually have to change the corresponding vendor from GUI manually (for EVERY package).

    Is there a way to tell Zypper (on "zypper up" or "zypper dup") to check which vendor has the latest package and use that vendor, and do it for all the packages?

    PS. Please don't tell me to RTFM or google - I've done it many-many times

    zypper dup -r <repo name>

    or use the vendor switch in Yast, like this

    Yes, it simplifies selecting vendors manually, but I still have to know where the most recent packages are. No way to let Zypper do the comparison?
