    Default Packman repo? Why is removing packages suggested in Software Managment?


    Why is this going on? I use this machine to watch media like heck I would remove these files and break 50%+ of my functionality. There is a whole pile of "red" entries in this repo and it's all multimedia stuff mostly.

    You do not get the point of those red entries. It simply means that those packages are offered in newer versions. What makes you think they are going to be removed?

    When the entries are blue it means there are newer versions from my experience. Red means something is amiss and you will get a pop waring you that some conditions will be unsatisfied if you make a selection of a red entry because it will remove the package and something else depends on it.

    Red does not mean "remove".
    Nothing is going to be removed on the photo you posted.

    Hi
    That would indicate a wayward repository. Not pointing at unixheads?

    Red means that the package installed is not available in the repos. Check
    the version tab to see what is available for update and from which repo. I
    bet that the installed version is from a different repo (not packman).

    Looks like it will remove it and cause all kinds of problems to me.

    repo is ftp.uni-erlangen.de
    server is /pub/mirrors/packman/suse/11.3/

    All these files are from packman. they even have pm in ehe filename.

    Other files in this repo were blue and I updated them.

    Sorry, I obviously misunderstand the colour-code myself, which is because I never use YaST for package management, only zypper - I didn't wanted to confuse anyone.

    Things are uneasy to judge by some barely legible screenshots, since they do not provide all the information needed. Please switch to the command line and post the output of

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    zypper se -si | grep "(System" | grep .pm.
    zypper -v up
    The last command would trigger an update, however, when asked whether to actually install these updates, you can say "no", I'd still be interested in the exact output.

    Please post them in code tags.

    No, the one in parenthesis yes, the installed one has no 'pm'
