    Default A little problem

    Went to do a zypper dup today and it returned
    Code:
    Warning: You are about to do a distribution upgrade with all enabled repositories. Make sure these repositories are compatible before you continue. See 'man zypper' for more information about this command.
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Computing distribution upgrade...
    
    Problem: python-kde4-4.5.1-2.1.x86_64 requires libkde4 = 4.5.1, but this requirement cannot be provided
      deleted providers: libkde4-4.5.1-3.7.x86_64
     Solution 1: Following actions will be done:
      deinstallation of python-kde4-4.5.1-2.1.x86_64
      deinstallation of ksmolt-0.2.3-6.2.noarch
     Solution 2: deinstallation of NetworkManager-kde4-libs-lang-0.9.svn1161677-2.1.noarch
     Solution 3: keep obsolete libkde4-4.5.1-3.7.x86_64
     Solution 4: deinstallation of plasmoid-networkmanagement-0.9.svn1161677-2.1.x86_64
     Solution 5: break python-kde4 by ignoring some of its dependencies
    
    Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/3/4/5/c] (c):

    Did you do what the warning says? I guess not.

    Sorry Carlos i'm still quite a newbie to openSUSE

    Some things I have learnt:
    * After reading the FAQ link provided by DenverD I will cut back my repos to 4 (openSUSE-11.3-Oss, openSUSE-11.3-Non-Oss, Updates for openSUSE 11.3 11.3-1.82, packman)
    * I will never ever do zypper dup again
    * Once I have installed something from a different repo from the 4 above I have listed remove that repo
    * Read the warnings - I should have done that

    Sorry to have wasted everybodies time - should have read the FAQ first

    Thanks

    Much safer. Till you learn your ways, at least.

    > * I will never ever do zypper dup again


    There is a trick for doing a dup on just one repo, that's safer. Some people recomend it for special
    purposes. Dup has it uses, it is just that the way you tried... well. You stopped in time :-)

    Me, I usually use YaST instead. I can see what it is going to do and modify it (one of the tabs
    shows it).

    > * Once I have installed something from a different repo from the 4
    > above I have listed remove that repo


    Yes and no... because then it might try to "update" to a version from other repo, spoiling your
    intentions. Sometimes it is advisable what you say, yes. But usually playing with the priorities
    gets similar results.

    > * Read the warnings - I should have done that


    YES! :-)

    > Sorry to have wasted everybodies time - should have read the FAQ first


    Don't worry.

    You asked before going ahead, that could have destroyed your installation. The repair would have
    been painful and long (for us ;-) ), easier reinstalling. So no, you did the right thing: asking.

    Consider these hints as a starting point, though. I am sure most members in here do use more than the mentioned four repositories. I myself have about twenty repos enabled and (dare I say it?) yes, I do 'zypper dup'. The thing is: before you do anything like that, you should know what you are doing, for example: what does a specific repository contain? How is it maintained? Does it offer stable or alpha software (I personally do not think that simply disabling a repo after installing some alpha-software will help much...)? Is it compatible with my other repos? Furthermore there's package-locking, priorities and experience on how to handle package conflicts. If you are up to a bleeding edge system, this is about what you'll have to understand and know.

    However, it is not necessary to be up to a bleeding edge system. Running SuSE with these four repos will give you a pretty hassle-free life and still lotsa software to choose from. Have fun with it.
