Thread: Why Is So Much Downloaded?

  1. #1

    Default Why Is So Much Downloaded?

    I just went to install Digikam.
    YaST suggested the install size was about 16MB.
    Then to satisfy dependencies (most of which seemed to be slight version differences of existing packages) it downloaded about 350MB.

    Is this a function of rpms?
    I never used to have this sort of issue when I was running debian based systems.

    What repos do you have? Do, as root:

    zypper lr

    Hypothesis: that you had not updated the system before, and those were
    delayed updates. Or your repo configuration and the digikam version you
    chose triggered those packages.

    It is possible to know that by analyzing the proposed install.

    I have set YaST to manually update so that it starts quicker, but that was only done on Nov 21st and I have done updates since then.

    Its a bit of a mute point at the moment anyway, because on restarting after installing DigiKam, KDE is segfaulting and the only way to log in is via IceWM.

    You have far too many repos. In particular, subscribing to KDEistro:Factory will get you lots of updates.

    I couldn't work out how to access the network from IceWM (the KDE network settings kept crashing) so I just reinstalled 11.3
    I have a separation of system and data so it was a relatively clean process.
    However, these are the enabled repositories after a fresh install

    Code:
    # zypper lr -d
    # | Alias              | Name                  | Enabled | Refresh | Priority | Type   | URI                                                                           | Service

    If factory is such a beta area likely to cause problems, why is it enabled by default?
    Surely packman is what we want enabled in the default installation, right?

    That can not be so. You must have done something to enable it. The only
    default repos are oss, non-oss, dvd, updates, and source and debug (both
    disabled).

    If you are sure you didn't enable them, it could be a feature of the
    installation reading settings. I know a new install on top of another read
    the fstab and the user list, and recreates those settings in the new
    install. I'm not aware that it reads the list of repos, but perhaps it is a
    new feature in 11.3. Anybody knows if this guess is correct?
