Thread: zypper R the stats pack

  1. #1

    Default zypper R the stats pack

    OK,
    I installed R using zypper some time back, but then I read that I should have used a specific repository called Rpatched.

    So (note order) I added the repository, then remove R (called R-base) and then proceeded to install the package.

    Clearly in my repository list there is more than one source of R.

    Should I have removed the package first and then add the new repository?

    How in fact does zypper deal with different repositories when they all have the same package? I expect it might choose the most recent version.
    But what happens when the packages are patched? How doe si tidetermine the best version of the package to use?

    No.

    It is based first on the priority of the repo, and if two repos have
    the same priority, then the newest version of the package.
