    Default Zypper v Yast and limiting upgrades

    I wanted to clarify 2 things regarding package management.

    1. I went to Yast and software management - I searched and selected the 'chromium' package. It then advised that there were 40 other optional dependencies to go with this selection. After reviewing the packages I didn't feel the suggestions were appropriate so I aborted the change. I went to the command line and did
    Code:
    zypper in chromium
    I was asked to install 3 packages. Why the difference between zypper and Yast ?

    2. I have packman and KDE:extra repositories enabled. Is there a way without disabling those repositories to stop them replacing system packages during an update? So limit them to install only and update only of their packages ?

    Hmm, I can't confirm that. Zypper and yast behaves exactly the same in case of chromium and wants to install 3 packages:
    Code:
    chromium chromium-desktop-gnome chromium-suid-helper

    Have a look at the option --repo:
    -r, --repo <alias|name|#|URI>
    Work only with the repository specified by the alias, name, num-
    ber, or URI. This option can be used multiple times.
    zypp it...

    Try YOU, see if it wants to install anything.
