    Default How to disable update for a package


    Hello,

    I have an application here that has some incompatibilities with java
    1.6.0_11 and for this reason I must use java 1.6.0_7.

    The problem is that everyday the update applet shows me a message
    telling to update this package.

    Is there a way to disable the update of this package without removing
    OpenSUSE Update Repository?

    Thanks in advance,

    Tulio Magno

    Goto yast > oline update > right click the update in question and select
    " protect " from the menu.

    Hi malcolmlewis,

    Thanks for your help.
    I tried that. Firstly I changed the backend to zypper (I think the
    default in OpenSUSE 11.1 is PackageKit) to show that special tab.

    But I'm still receiving these messages from kupdateapplet.

    I think it's really necessary to create an easy option in kupdateapplet
    to block some updates.
