Thread: How can I ask for a package to be updated?

  1. #1

    Default How can I ask for a package to be updated?

    I use UrbanTerrot, but the package is version 4.3.2, while the latest version is 4.3.4.
    Because of this, there are barely servers available to play the game.

    How do I get the package updated?

    Hi
    How did you install in the first place? It's not packaged for openSUSE as far as I can see?

    If you downloaded from the game website, then you would need to follow the same route for the updated package....

    The package is posted rather anonymously.

    Hi
    Not really, you just need to find your way around the openSUSE Build Service (OBS)

    So package is here;
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...es/urbanterror

    Click on the users tab to see who the maintainer is;
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/u...es/urbanterror

    Then check the changelog for the user's email....
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/v...anges?expand=1

    Note, if you have an OBS account and are logged in you can actually follow the maintainer link to see the email address...

    Or you can raise a bug report and ask for it to be updated....

    Overigens kun je ook de tar file downloaden, en die in je homedir uitpakken. Voordat er openSUSE pakketten waren, draaide mijn zoon 't ook zo.

    Google Translation:
    Incidentally, you can also download the tar file, and unpack it in your homedir. Before there were openSUSE packages, my son also turned it on.
