Thread: tex updates?

  1. #1

    Default tex updates?

    Apologies for the lack of `texlive' in the subject header, but slrn doesn't seem to be able to include the letter `l' in
    the header!

    This week, every day I have had >700 texlive updates after running `zypper up' and of course they are the same packages
    every day (and yes I am applying them every time). My repo list is pasted below. I was wondering whether this is just me
    or others experiencing this strange behaviour?

    Code:
    sh-4.2$ sudo zypper lr -u

    don't know if this will help, but it can't hurt: do not (ever) mix
    the repos of one version with that of another...

    that is, you have a lot of 12.3 repos, and one 12.2....

    change that and _maybe_ your problem goes away...if not, repost but
    this time use
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    more: i'd recommend you read and follow the very sound advice in the
    paragraph beginning with "IMPORTANT!" in this post:

    you might also find the problem goes away when you don't have so many
    sources in the grab bag..

    Strange.

    I am not seeing any tex updates. And yes, I do have it installed.

    Is it possible that your rpm database is corrupt?

    (Edit): Sorry, I did not notice your list of repos. I only have the standard repos.

    There are probably some packages being rebuilt only because dependencies require it. So you are probably installing cosmetic updates due to that.

    Thanks for spotting that - I was obviously remiss to not update my post-install script properly. None of the 12.2
    hangovers provide texlive so I suspect that isn't the cause. Nevertheless I will update them now.

    Thanks for the link!

    I suspect that's the most likely cause, and admit a strong need to prune the repo list!
