    Default New naming convention in updates

    What are these patches in the updates repo with names like "openSUSE-2012-172" or "openSUSE-2012-184?" Is this a new convention? How can I get the details in zypper?

    zypper info -t patch <patch_id>

    Only the second one produced a result on my system:

    Thanks. I hope this isn't a change, I don't want to query each patch to find out what I'm installing.

    The fifth one there is no info. Yast says it is the flash update.

    Interestingly, I tabooed it, but yast wants to install it again. :-/

    zypper lp

    should describe
    No, it doesn't. It just displays the cryptic names along with category and status. This is going to be a pain to sort out.

    It shows the descriptions what it is in 12.1 with the "zypper lp" but
    not in 11.4, maybe worth a feature request to have that in 11.4 as well.
