    first, please read and follow the paragraph beginning with "IMPORTANT"
    in this posting http://tinyurl.com/33qc9vu, i ask you to read that first
    because it will explain what is guiding this:

    please open YaST Software Repositorys and disable and stop refreshing
    these repos: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 21, 23

    then stop refreshing these: 8, 10, 18, 19, 22

    if i did that right you should then have only four repos enabled (oss,
    non-oss, update and packman; and only the last two or those refreshing.

    after you have done that, then disable apper--have you done that?

    ok, then reboot and do this in a terminal again:

    Code:
    su -
    rpmdb --rebuilddb
    zypper clean --all
    zypper ref
    zypper patch
    and, next time you have more than four repos *or* download anything from
    factory...you are on your own!!

    in fact, i am nowhere near sure that what i have advised will repair all
    the damage that (may) have been done with all those repos!!

    and, i hope it is smooth because i would not know what else to do..

    by the way, if it hurts your feelings that i'm asking you to follow info
    in the "new person" FAQ then take a look at my repos:

    ....

    You have duplicated several times the repos oss, non-oss and updates.
    Remove the duplicates. How did you manage to do that?

    You have the packman repo twice, remove one.

    Remove the "PK_TMP_DIR" repo.

    Remove the "openSUSE_Factory" - what on earth are you doing with that one,
    what are you thinking? It will destroy your system.

    At least ignore it completely.

    > following that run these commands


    You should have stopped here, your repo list is wrong. At this point I
    would revise the entire list of installed packages using the yast package
    manager, looking at those packages in red or other colors. In the version
    tab you can choose which version you want. Some of them you will have
    probably to downgrade.

    agree..
    that was my fault..
    i typed the 'zypper lr -d' request, scrolled down to read..
    the phone rang,
    i fed the lion,
    built a house,
    came back to the email and just picked up where i left off reading..

    and THEN copy/pasted in did the zypper fix it magic 1,2,3...

    eventually, a dup might be required--no?

    Hi Denver,

    Did all that you told and after the "zypper patch" instruction finally I see that everything is fine.


    Code:
    linux-o6mf:~ # zypper patch
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    Nothing to do.
    Thanks you for your help....

    Understandable :-)

    Anyway, a zypper patch can do no damage as it pulls only from the update
    repo, so don't worry. And the user should have noticed at least part of the
    problems in the repo list, the repeated repos are obvious.

    > eventually, a dup might be required--no?


    I'm afraid so.

    very welcome....keep those repos trimmed down to oss, non-oss, packman
    and update all the time and you will not have troubles like these..

    and, realize that any software one click that comes from a repo with any
    of these words in it _might_ kill you system: unstable, tumbleweed,
    playground, experimental, home, maintenance

    and, consider downloading from factory about as safe as playing in the
    street.

    and, after every 1-Click check to make sure all repos it enabled are
    disabled and not refreshing..

    or, of course it is your machine so do as you wish--but if you break it,
    you fix it.
