    You may change the address of the virtual box repo to this one: http://download.virtualbox.org/virtu...opensuse/11.4/ for Tumbleweed users

    I'd like to try opensuse kde (which already use with PCLinuxOS). My question is: if I install the current 11.4 (or even the 12.1 rc) and apply to it the tumbleweed repository, can i expect to update to 12.1 (when it comes out), or is it better install the 12.1 directly and then apply the tumbleweed repository? I understand that the question seems strange (if I make a rolling distro, it should update itself automatically), but i'm not sure, so... Hoping my english is clear and correct, thanks in advance for your response and attention.

    FYI: openSUSE:Contrib - openSUSE
    Please note that from the openSUSE 12.1 release onwards, the Contrib repository is deprecated!
    If you are a user, rest assured that the vast majority of these packages is now integrated in the main repository of openSUSE. Some of them are available on the build service and you can find them using the [software.opensuse.org/ software search]. If you're a developer, please push your packages to Factory! This is not complicated and gets your package to all openSUSE users out there!
