    Default Installing Gnome 3 - Not happening like others

    I added the repository from stable, the did a 'sudo zypper dup' and nothing.... it did some stuff but didnt really do anything (asides: moved over some packages from suse rep to gnome rep) ... I still have Gnome 2.32...
    What has happened?

    Not even there, just GNOME... I cant quite see why it hasnt done anything.
    Everyone else seems to get serious issues, and I would be fine with solving that. But 'zypper dup' didnt really do anything with the rep. WHy could this be?

    The repo is apparently not ready yet. Some of us jumped the gun and
    they're still working out issues. I would expect it to not work at this
    stage.

    Hi,

    For now, the official repo of GNOME 3 has some issues. So, it is wise to wait a little until someone post a confirmation that everything is fixed.

    @ caf4926, do we have news of the state of this repo ? Maybe we should post an announce stating that users should wait before doing a zypper dup with this repo enabled until we are sure from the devs taht all issues have been fixed. What do you think?

    I just tried this in a test partition myself and it's worked OK. It's not 100% but I don't have time to look much now as I have to sleep.

    I don't know why so many are switching to this so soon. It's not a good idea. Especially if you have to ask questions about what to do if you get in a mess.

    You are so right about that. I don't even know too. People are impatient and would rather got into a mess just to do the switch.

    I believe people are making the swap as it has entered the STABLE repository. This leaves users with a sense of completion.. hence attempting update.
    I personally have no issue with getting into bother, its how you learn - I've had it many times over the last 6+ years. I asked for help as I had an unusual encounter - it did nothing haha
    Thanks anyway
