Thread: How do I know if I should upgrade packages not included by zypper up?

    Default How do I know if I should upgrade packages not included by zypper up?

    I ran the command "Zypper up" and it said:

    Code:
    The following package updates will NOT be installed:
      alsa alsa-firmware alsa-plugins alsa-utils gstreamer-0_10 gstreamer-0_10-plugin-gnomevfs gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base kaffeine libasound2 libass4 libfluidsynth1 libfreebl3 
      libgstapp-0_10-0 libgstinterfaces-0_10-0 libgstreamer-0_10-0 liborc-0_4-0 libqt4 libqt4-qt3support libqt4-sql libqt4-sql-sqlite libqt4-x11 libQtWebKit4 libschroedinger-1_0-0 
      libshout3 libsndfile libsoftokn3 libtag-extras1 libvdpau1 libvdpau-devel libvdpau_trace1 mozilla-js192 mozilla-kde4-integration mozilla-nss-certs mozilla-xulrunner192 
      mozilla-xulrunner192-gnome mozilla-xulrunner192-translations-common python-numpy taglib xdg-utils
    While some of those things I don't care about, any improvements in alsa, I do care about. How do i know if I should try to upgrade alsa? What causes zypper to reject it?

    Priorities, vendor changes... I think there is an option that gives more
    detailed info about the upgrade possibilities of one package. Maybe someone
    else remembers the incantation.

    Thanks for your help. Can you explain a bit more about what "the switcher" is?
