    Default question about automatic online update in YaST

    Hi,

    in the last few days, Kpackagekit, which I use to update my system (openSUSE 11.4) had some difficulties to

    1. install updates for flashplugin, because whenever you accept the license, Kpackagekit closes, and starts from beginning = a never ending cycle is started

    2. fetch updates from Packman. It always throws a message with connection timeout - in Zypper and YaST no such problem occurs

    Thats why I have fiddled around in YaST online update and found a feature "automatic online update". For that you need an extra package yast-online-update-configuration. I installed it and configured it to do automatic Updates.

    So now I have a question on how it works. Because I have some additional repos activated: KDE updated Apps, KDE extra and the KDE release 4.6 repo, which brings the most recent KDE updates for KDE 4.6.

    These repos have priority 90 whereas all the other repos - Packman, OSS, Non-OSS, Contrib etc. have prio 99.

    Will YaST install all the updates from KDE with this setup? I am asking, because when I did online updates in Yast before, with prio 99 for the KDE repos, it did not update them, unless I choosed, "Packages --> update all, if newer version is available".

    I would like to set Kpackagekit into silent and just stick with YaST for that, but have an automatic system update.

    Any hints and ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    No, 'YOU' only uses the "update" repo, or any other of that kind. None,
    usually.

    I would not use the automatic 'YOU'.

    If packagekit gives you problems, use "zypper up" from a terminal. It does
    exactly what you want.

    Yep.
    What 'YOU' does is a "zypper patch"

    YaST can do the equivalent to "zypper up" if you tell it to update whatever
    to newer versions.
