    Default Update the Wine

    The Wine installed on my system is 1.5.2.3.111
    I tried to install the latest version directly from the Wine website, but an error message appears saying that the wine gecko is missing and can not find
    I understand that OpenSuse can not use a new version of Wine?
    Is that right?

    Why not? I have 1.7

    What openSUSE version do you have?

    the current version for openSUSE (13.1) in the OSS repo is 1.7.2.2

    You should be installing it from there - not the Wine website (of course assuming you have openSUSE 13.1).

    1.5.23 sounds like the version included in openSUSE 12.3.

    Just install the latest version from here: (1.7.8 at the moment)
    software.opensuse.org: Install package Emulators:Wine / wine

    And that "error" about wine gecko is just a warning!
    Click on cancel and wine should work, although without web browser suppport of course.
    You can install the package "wine-gecko" (if you're using the wine from openSUSE) to get rid of this warning though.
    If you compiled a newer wine yourself, you should maybe _remove_ that package, since it's of course for the older 1.5.23 version.

    Thank you all, for the answers.

    Yes, I am using OpenSuse 12.3, 32 and KDE

    I removed the Wine old version and installed Wine by the address that pointed me.
    The installation was done without any problems

    Only I did not understand the reason that apper not show this update before making this new installation.
    It is probable that this is happening with other applications, in other words, , it seems that my system does not use updated repositories.

    Is possible to have the updated repositories or is this only possible by installing the new version of OpenSuse?

    Apper (and also YaST and zypper) only shows updates in the repositories you have added to your system.

    It is openSUSE's policy that you don't get newer versions of software through the standard repos, only bugfix and security updates.
    For newer software versions you need to add additional repos to your system.

    You can find packages here:
    software.opensuse.org: Search

    Is possible to have the updated repositories or is this only possible by installing the new version of OpenSuse?
    Depending on how you installed wine, you should have the WINE repo configured now, so you should also get all updates from there.

    You can check your repos in YaST->Software Repositories, in Apper's settings, or by running:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    Don't get versionitis aka update freak.

    If you really need some rececent, updated version of an app, search for
    the repos containing it and use them. Don't try to update everything.
    The more repos you add, the more chances you get of breaking your system
    - unless you really know what you are doing.

    I imagine that before, I had not the first line.

    I also noticed that apper shows my python version as 2.7.3-10.8.1
    and the website version is 2.7.5 .. 260

    In this case, what should I do to get the update of python automatically?

    Right. So you clicked on the 1-click install I guess. This automatically adds the repo as I said.
    In the future you will be automatically offered new wine versions by the update applet.

    I also noticed that apper shows my python version as 2.7.3-10.8.1

    Yes, and the openSUSE 12.3 version will stay at 2.7.3 for the whole lifetime of 12.3, as already explained.
    You will get security and bug fix updates through the update repo though, backported to 2.7.3.

    In this case, what should I do to get the update of python automatically?
    You shouldn't if you don't have any specific reason for that.

    Again, you will get bugfixes through the standard repo, openSUSE's python 2.7.3 is not really a plain 2.7.3, there are some (many actually) patches added.
    Run "rpm -q --changelog python" to see the changes (or click on the "Versions" tab in YaST->Software Management).

    But a newer version (2.7.6) _is_ available also for oS 12.3 in the devel:languages:python repo.
    See software.opensuse.org:
