    Default Updater keeps posting new software available!#?


    openSUSE 11.0, KDE 4. XPS M1330 Dell laptop

    Here's the problem.
    I click on the red triangle on bottom right desktop task bar.
    It says " New Software for your system is available."

    So I click on the icon and a window appears with all the updates and
    the 'install' button.

    I click on it and an Administrator's password window pop's up.

    I correctly type in the Administrator's password and hit enter.

    The window goes away and 5 seconds later the red triangle is showing
    again, "New software for your system is available."

    Rather than keep going through this strange, never ending cycle. I
    would prefer it just goes away, as no updates are made at all.

    How do I remedy this weird situation?
    The linux guru's reading this, know how easy it is, no doubt.
    I however am stumped.

    Thanks,
    Chetanji

    Sorry, it is KDE 3.5.9 with the others staying the same.

    The suse updater goes insane sometimes.

    Go to YaST --> Software --> Online Updates, select all new patches
    available and install.

    I don't have YaST --> Software --> Online Updates. All I have under
    "Software" is "Software management", "Add-on products", "Media check"
    and "Software repositories".

    How did that happen? Seems your YaST is missing some of its standard
    parts!!

    TRY this: select "Software Management", search on yast and click
    to place a check mark (to install) these two:

    yast2-online-update-frontend
    yast2-online-update

    It _may_ then pop up a list of other items it needs to add to satisfy
    dependencies--accept them.

    If you are lucky, the next time you start YaST it will have all the
    parts it was born with. (If you are unlucky: find someone with a
    better suggestion to try.)

    I had a similar problem with KDE 4.1.3. I found if I right clicked the updater icon I found an option to register it, then the updater started working, the register option is gone now. I download the repositories for oss, non-oss and update. which were already on my system. But it then started working. ON-line update under YaST2 has always worked.
