    Default Does YaST2 or Apper allow sorting by repositories?

    I was wondering if YaST2 or Apper allowed for sorting via repositories.

    I need some non-oss stuff, and i kinda don't feel like looking for it via search. i'm feeling a bit lazy today lol

    please do not use Apper, it is broken...some disable it, others use YaST
    to uninstall it....either way works to avoid it..

    the full functions of Appear is done correctly by YaST Online
    Update...run it (say) once a week and have the system adminstrator check
    the list of offered updates before clicking on "Accept"

    i don't understand what you are trying to do that can be done quicker or
    easier than "via search"..

    if you disable (using YaST Software Repositories) all repos except
    non-oss then you can easily use the search and get returns only from the
    non-oss repo...

    or, maybe you just wanna look around the non-oss repo to see what all is
    there? you can do that with your browser
    http://download.opensuse.org/distrib.../non-oss/suse/ and
    then pick your architecture from i586 for 32 bit, or x86_64 for 64
    bit.....but, when you do that you won't see anything but the package
    (RPM) names....that is you won't get the package/utility/application
    descriptions (like you do in YaST)

    you could also go to http://software.opensuse.org/search, but still you
    would see a search box, and it would lead to all sorts of repos that are
    not non-oss..

    maybe if you said what kind of "non-oss stuff" you are looking for . . .

    YaST can view by repository, ie, view the contents of one repo. And then,
    it can search the contents of that view.

    Apper I don't know and I don't care. Uninstall it.
