Thread: new to susestudio what reps to 'add' ?

    Default new to susestudio what reps to 'add' ?

    For a 12.3 KDE specific build. What, realistically, are the correct repositories to 'add' to keep software and system bang up to date? Like I'd like to able to upgrade KDE to 4.10.1, Firefox latest, etc.

    I seem to remember something about the more reps you add in openSUSE the more messy it gets to manage.

    Thanks.

    There are various repos labeled "stable" that will help keep things
    current with updated releases, but they aren't always tested against each
    other (that's the reason the default update repo doesn't generally
    upgrade from, say, KDE 4.9 to KDE 4.10. Too many dependencies get
    broken).

    You could subscribe to the factory repository - at that point, you're not
    12.3 any more, you're "13.1 pre-release", but factory is going to be the
    bleeding edge of development.
