Thread: Software Update wants to update KDE packages when running GNOME

  1. #1

    Default Software Update wants to update KDE packages when running GNOME

    Hello All,

    I just had a simple question that maybe someone could help me with.

    DISTRO --- OpenSUSE 11.4
    ENV --- GNOME
    KERNEL --- 2.6.37.6-0.7-desktop

    Today I got the icon on the "Taskbar" that there were updates available. One of the updates is this (below):

    kdebase4-openSUSE: Fix build service search provider

    And since I'm running GNOME I unchecked that one and installed the rest of the updates that were available. And after a while I wanted to finally get rid of the update Icon from the taskbar so I was just going to update the thing anyway. But when I chose to update it, it said I needed to download these other packages as well (below):


    --The KDE Runtime Components
    --KDE Base Libraries: Build Enviorment


    So I guess my question is why would it offer to update KDE stuff when I only run on GNOME? Is there a way to have "Software Update" not ask to update/install KDE Components?



    Thanks in Advance,
    Matt

    It's entirely possible that you have kde applications though or at least some libraries

    Hey there Caf, thanks for the reply.

    So you think I should just go ahead and let it download the update, even though it wants to download and install those other ones too?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I don't know what is already installed on your system.

    But it's probably fine. I have to sleep now. If you'd rather wait, let me see the output from su - terminal

    Code:
    zypper lp
    and
