    Default Online update gone berserk?

    Something VERY puzzling just happened. Last week, I had to build this brand new laptop, got all the 11.2 software installed, ran all the updates, life was good.

    Today, Online Update notifies me that there are updates available. When I check in Yast - Online Update, I see"KDE 4.3.5 Update" in the Summary, which is very suspicious, since I had already performed this update a week ago.

    However, when I check the Packages section, I see that all the packages will be DOWNGRADED from 4.3.5 to 4.3.1. For example, "ark" shows as "installed (available)" : 4.3.5-0.1.1 (4.3.1-3.4).

    Anyone have any idea what could be happening?

    Here is my "zypper lr -d":

    OK thanks - that took care of the immediate "threat" of downgrading those packages - all but Kate (which I installed today from (apparently) the ISO, not directly from the update site) the KDE packages showed up still in the "packages" pane on Online Update, but they were marked as "Keep". Only Kate was upgraded.

    Longer-term, I would like to keep the ISO of the original distro as a repo, should I just disable the cd:// and set the priority on the ISO one to 99? Would that fix this problem?

    Go to Yast Software Management
    View by repository
    In the list on the left go to Updates

    Now click the switch system packages
    (Like in this, but this is showing a different repo)
    ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing

    Can you apply/accept that?

    There is no need for repo 6 and 7, they are the same as the combination of OSS and NON-OSS.
    All repos should be at priority 99

    I am using the :Stable OpenOffice version 3.2, since the original 3.1 version has got major problems with exporting Word docs and this would switch it back, I guess.

    Can I do this safely: 1) click on the button switch as you instructed 2) without clicking Apply, select the OpenOffice repository and switch the OOO packages back to it 3) apply the changes...?

    You should be able to.
    You can always just close Yast if you don't like the look of it or it throws a dependency wobbly.
