    Default How do I downgrade a package?

    The flash player got updated in my last upgrade, but it is very buggy and crashes all the time. How do I downgrade?

    Go into the software installation module in YaST, find the package, open
    "Versions" and select the older version you want to install.

    Hi
    Just check the history log and rollback via the version, for example I run GNOME, so;
    Code:
    cat /var/log/zypp/history |grep flash-player
    zypper in -f flash-player=11.2.202.233-15.1 flash-player-gnome=11.2.202.233-15.1

    Thank you, the yast way was very comfortable, it even let me pick a version from a list. But it's good to know that zypper can do it too, I usually use zypper for everything.
