Thread: Zypper patch should patch Thunderbird?

  1. #1

    Default Zypper patch should patch Thunderbird?

    Why does zypper patch not patch Thunderbird? For example, Thunderbird 31.1 contained security patches, but these were not installed by zypper patch, only by zypper update.

    "zypper patch" only installs official patches from the standard update repo.

    Your Thunderbird comes from the mozilla repo on OBS though:

    Btw, the standard repos contain version 24.x only.
    But this is not really older or outdated, it is the "Extended Support Release" (ESR).
