    Default KDE Update

    For a long while my updater has not been working, but I have got used to small bugs and CBA to do 2 hours maintenance every day just to get things working...
    Anyhoo, today I did a zypper rf, zypper lu (TONS!) and a zypper up.
    Gbs of update were dl'ed and installed, I thought "that should break things nicely", but I logged off and on and then re-booted and all was OK. Even my plasma clock started working properly which it had never done before!
    Now the updater is insisting I patch thus:


    But! I have
    Code:
    Platform Version 4.4.3 (KDE 4.4.3)
    If I try to accept I get some conflicts...
    Have I a rogue old repo?

    Code:
    root's password:
    # | Alias              | Name                  | Enabled | Refresh | Type  
    --+--------------------+-----------------------+---------+---------+-------
    1 | 4.4                | 4.4                   | Yes     | Yes     | rpm-md
    2 | 44_Community       | 44 Community          | Yes     | Yes     | rpm-md
    3 | ftp.skynet.be-suse | Packman Repository    | No      | No      | rpm-md
    4 | repo-non-oss       | openSUSE-11.2-Non-Oss | Yes     | Yes     | yast2 
    5 | repo-oss           | openSUSE-11.2-Oss     | Yes     | Yes     | yast2 
    6 | repo-update        | openSUSE-11.2-Update  | Yes     | Yes     | rpm-md
    I am sure all this has been covered but I have not been doing much maintaining lately and I forget very quickly!

    During the zypper up, loads of updates Strigi, Nepomuk, Virtuoso, soprano etc etc, I fondly imagined that at last the horror story that is Nepomuk would start working, but no such luck....
    Anyone written any guidance lately on how to get this can of worms actually to do something useful?

    Default Re: KDE Update

    You should have used the "Switch system packages...." option from the software installer. Don't know about your internet connection, but you could do that still, for both 4.4 repos you have.

    Hi,

    One thing I can think of is if your repository priority isn't set up correctly. Although I've had this happen before when a critical java update was going to be applied and I didn't even have java installed. It kept trying to make me install java so it could apply the update.

    Please provide the output of

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    Laptop: Dell Inspiron E1505 | OpenSUSE 12.1/Windows Vista | KDE | Intel CPU T2050 1.6 GHz | Intel 945GM | 3.2GB RAM
    Box: OpenSUSE 12.1/Windows 7 | KDE | Intel Core 2 Quad 8300 2.5GHz/core | nVidia Geforce 9500GT 1GB| 4 GB RAM

    ps it alternates between the KDE 4.3.5 update patch and a "dummy patch", the dummy patch resolves to a "D-Bus Error"

    Hmm. Nothing wrong with your repository setup as far as I can see. To be sure you can set your 44 and 44 community repositories to 98 to give them higher priority and then see if that helps.

    Take Care,

    Well I have started doing a daily zypper ref & zypper up, it seems that loads of updates come in on a daily basis (30 - 60 Mb per day), worse than windows (!)
    I also tried to switch the update applet back-end to zypper, but it STILL nags me to patch KDE 4.3.5, even though I have KDE 4.4.3?????

    Still the same message:

    Default Re: KDE Update

    Start the software installer and search for "kde-4", it should show the one package the updater is trying to update.
    If it's there, try uninstalling it. Weird thing is, that this package is not in the repos you have enabled.
    If it's not there, it may be a fault in your package database. Do
    Code:
    su -c 'rpm --rebuilddb'
    in a terminal window.

    There's another thing: the Packman repos are not enabled, not being refreshed. I suggest you turn them on.
