    Default exe file updates downloading through yast?


    This is confusing me, I went into software management to update some of
    the files.

    It's spent ten minutes before i killed it saying it was downloading and
    installing font exe files. Is this normal? I didn't think exe files
    were installed in linux, not only that by why when I am only signed up
    for opensuse repositories are they download it through software
    management from some other website?

    ..exe files aren't built for Linux in most cases, but Linux is great in
    that it CAN run them if you want with something like wine, CrossOver
    Office, Cedega, etc. Are these invalid? Probably not.... just look
    like fonts to me. You could try to find the packages extracting these
    and see if you trust them, though.

    Good luck.

    Oh, and how could I forget.... .exe applications written in .NET can be
    run in mono, which I believe comes by default with SUSE distributions
    (not confirmed).

    Good luck.

    It's ok
    It's MSttfonts
    It's been added probably by another application you were installing.
    Same happened to me. It's fine.
