    Default Yast: which priority to set to get automatic updates

    Hello everyone

    I am running on 11.2 and i have added some repositories, like Packman, KDE 4.4 Factory, KDE 4.4 Community.

    I would like to have this packages automatically updated which seems not to happen. If I look into software management every now and then, I always have to "switch system packages" to get the updates via the the updated applet.

    So I was wondering, if it could be due to a wrong priority for those repositories? Is a high or a low priority the point where the applet is looking from which repo to update?
    If not, what is this priority used for?

    Thanks

    AFAIU, the updater tool only checks the official openSUSE repos. I only ever use zypper to upate packages.

    I'll leave it others to explain the priority behaviour, as I believe this has changed with openSUSE 11.2.

    I don't use the updater applet. Once I've told the installer to switch to a repo, the next time it will include that repo, when I do 'Packages - All Packages - Update if newer version available. This also gives me the choice to skip updates.
