    Default setting the system back to standard KDE 4.6.0

    Hi folks,

    over here on my desktop I have KDE 4.6.4 running, updated from 4.6.0 through all intermediate steps. In the last few days I feel, that it got a bit unstable and I think, I have messed it up again, with doing some stupid things in the repository management. But of course, I don´t remember what I did...

    So I am asking myself, if I could reset the system to the state where it came from: KDE 4.6.0, including all the updates from the standard openSUSE repositories.

    I would do it as follows:

    1. deactivate the additional KDE repositories and X11 from OBS (I needed it for installing xbindkeys)

    2. switch packages to the standard repositories, which came with openSUSE, and also switch the packages to Packman

    3. run an update, or how it is called, the switch back to 4.6.0

    would this work, or would I completly mess the system up?

    I then would leave it like it is, with the only additional repo´s: Packman

    would be great if someone would guide me to / on the way to go... I don´t wanna re-install the whole system...

    Thanks!

    Remove the OBS kde repos
    run: zypper dup (It's also possible to use the switch on OSS, I have done it this way)
    Then apply the packman switch (You may need to keep the old linphone package)

    That's it
    Though I would have a look in repo view > system
    scan all the packages looking for red text, it may indicate orphaned packages from the obs kde repos

    seems like that it has worked out, so far.

    the following packages were orphaned:

    Code:
    taglib
    
    libx264-114
    
    libswscale0
    
    libtag1
    libtagc0
    
    libpostproc51
    
    libdbusmenu-qt2
    
    libavcodec52
    
    libavcodec53
    
    libavfilter2
    
    libavformat53
    
    libavutil51
    
    ffmpeg
    but they are just multimedia related... no system packages or application related packages... that´s why I do not really understand why KDE was so shaky before. But maybe it was because of some changes in the packages themselves

    After the rollback, libx264-114 still is orphaned and there were also some red debug-info packages remaining from the 4.6.4 version. I just uninstalled them.

    So everything looks good again. Thanks, caf!

    Red alone does not signify orphaned
    Go to the version tab, only if no provider is listed, will it likely be orphaned

    If it's red and there is a provider, it means it's a roll back

    ah, ok. Understood.

    libx264-114 has a provider (Packman). So it should be okay then.

    Did you remove those in that list you gave?
    Most of them should be installed

    My repo name for Packman is: packman

    no, I didn´t remove them. I first typed "zypper dup" and checked if they are in it´s list to be "downgraded" or to change vendor. And as they were in this list, I left them.

    And they are not red anymore in YaST.
